Working Title

The working title for my essay has been proposed. "The Resurrection, The Church and the Theology of the Subject" is where it stands at the moment. Sounds intriguing. At this stage it looks as though I'm going to put Badiou next to St Paul, Hegel or Žižek, and Bonhoeffer. It's a funny little mix, but should result in something interesting.

It certainly fits into the larger project of materialist theology. And by "materialist" I think there is a deliberate double-meaning of materialism as opposed to physicalism. Not only does materialism demand the absence of an ectoplasmic reality, but it marks a solid line through Marx as well. From Paul to Marx to Bonhoeffer to Badiou.
