The rebel in those gospels unfolds as a chain of marvelous but worldly practices of important confirmation. due to the fact that those exercises don't depend upon fantasies of get away, they engender intimate alterations of the self alongside the very coordinates from which they emerge. Enacting a comparative and contagious postsecular sensibility, those gospels draw at the paintings of Slavoj Žižek, Giorgio Agamben, Catherine Malabou, François Laruelle, Peter Sloterdijk, and Gilles Deleuze but rejuvenate scholarship in continental philosophy, severe race concept, the hot materialisms, speculative realism, and nonphilosophy. they suspect past the sovereign strength of the single to start up a thorough politics "after" God.
