From Political Theology to Philosophy of History

My research concentrates on the modern version of an ancient philosophical problem: how is it possible—as it seems to be the case in Marxism and Critical Theory—that a complete reification and alienation does not preclude the search for truth? How can we know something that would, by necessity, cloud our minds? Hence the need for political theology during the revolutionary crisis after 1917 and its subsequent demise.
