…I see my list on political theology functioning like Wittgenstein’s ladder metaphor in his Tractatus.

Once they reach the top, they can throw away the ladder.

If one speaks of Political Theology as a “field” with its own “canon” one must surely be preparing to deconstruct it.

The texts I have identified as “need to become ‘essential’ texts” function in this spirit…Each addresses questions of community-creation outside of liberal norms and modes of power.
