    A Deleuzian analysis of Thomas Altizer's style2009In: Literature & Theology, ISSN 0269-1205, E-ISSN 1477-4623, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 207-219Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article offers a new entrance into the radical theology of Thomas J. J. Altizer and suggests a contemporary relevance of his theology that might not yet be fully acknowledged. By relating Altizer's theology to the French thinker Gilles Deleuze's notions of repetition and the actual/virtual the article suggests a subversive force in precisely those stylistic characteristics of Altizer's prose that have been critiqued for indicating an incomplete break with modernist thought.

    Altizer and Deleuze: Material Metaphysics for Disastrous Times2020In: Journal for Cultural and Religious Theory, ISSN 1530-5228, E-ISSN 1530-5228, Vol. 19, no 1, p. 33-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Altizer, the academic bad guy, the metaphysical modernist, the nutty, repetitive preacher who, in our first encounter, told me all about his actual meeting with Satan—is he an apt thinker for the current planetary crisis? This article argues he could be. By relating Altizer to Gilles Deleuze I am not arguing that Altizer is inspired by and in that sense belongs to a vitalist or hermetic thought tradition but I am arguing thatwhen read through a Deleuzian lens, material aspects of his metaphysicsstand forth, as does the contemporary relevance of the peculiar stylethrough which his metaphysics materializes.

    Foucault, Magritte and negative theology beyond representation2013In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 67, no 1, p. 63-79Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent theological writings on the French philosopher Michel Foucault often mention Foucault in relation to negative theology. This article discusses the negative motion in Foucauldian thinking through Foucault's essay on the Belgian painter René Magritte. On the basis of this discussion, the article sketches a renewed account of negative theology. It is a post-representational account of negative theology in accordance with Foucault's critique of representation, as presented in his Magritte essay.

    Foucault, Manet and New Materialist Theology2016In: Literature & Theology, ISSN 0269-1205, E-ISSN 1477-4623, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 471-492Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses Michel Foucault’s analysis of Edouard Manet in relation to contemporary theology and sacramentality. The article argues that Foucault’s work on Manet instigates a move away not only from earlier forms of art or earlier forms of thought but also away from an overarching idea of Christian thinking, and towards a materialist and immanent approach to art and thought as spiritual practices. It is an approach that highlights invisibilities, or what the article names ‘non-places’, in the tangible and material processes of artistic representation in Manet’s work. By doing so, the article suggests, Foucault’s thoughts on Manet not only precede ideas in what goes under the name of new materialism in contemporary theology but even opens for a purely material understanding of sacramentality.

    Foucault, Velázquez and the place of sacramentality.2015In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 69, no 2, p. 126-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses Michel Foucault's analysis of Diego Velázquez’Las Meninasand suggests that Foucault's analysis introduces an erratic, yet material space for human knowledge after the death of God and man alike. The article introduces the space for thought provided by the Foucault analysis and subsequently relates it to Christian sacramentality of the postmetaphysical tradition with Catholic theologian Louis-Marie Chauvet. Chauvet, the article shows, underlines the materiality and situatedness of knowledge and thought in Christian faith in ways that relate to but also differ from the space Foucault points out in his analysis. With Foucault, the article argues, we may approach a more far reaching materiality that, in turn, may affect our account of sacramentality. The final part of the article, thus initiates an exploration of a material sacramentality in relation to the concrete, yet erratic space for human knowledge introduced by Foucault.

    Mystik och empati när tron är ett jobb2019In: Dagboken 2019-2020: med kyrkoalmanacka, Argument förlag , 2019Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    De tre 1900-talsmystikerna Emilia Fogelklou, Martin Buber och Emmanuel Levinas menar alla att nära möten med andra männ- iskor leder till Gud. Men hur är det med den anställdes möte med församlingsbon? Kan det vara nära och innerligt samtidigt som det är ansvarstagande och professionellt? Eller har Emilia Fogelklou rätt när hon skriver att andligt ledarskap inte passar de djupast religiösa?

    Abstract [sv]

    Vad händer med vårt tänkande när vi tvingas låta allt det andra—det som inte är Gud eller människa—komma till tals? När vår relation till tingen, växterna och djuren förändras, hur ändras då vår idéhistoria, vår kultur,vår tro? Det är frågor som Petra Carlsson ställer och diskuterar i denna artikel utifrån en alltmer alarmerande klimatkris.

    Pastorn som andlig ledare: I spänningen mellan närhet och distans2019In: Uppdrag pastor: Teologi och praktik, Votum Gullers förlag , 2019, p. 62-70Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Att vara pastor eller präst är att vara satt mitt i den andliga gemenskapen men samtidigt något lite utanför – ovanför eller vid sidan av. De mest direkta, hudlö- sa och ärliga mötena människor emellan sker ofta mellan jämbördiga trossys- kon. Att vara pastor är visserligen att leva i vänskap och samtal, men det är också att bära ett ansvar för gemenskapen och att snarare få förtroenden än att själv anförtro sig. Går det då att själv fördjupas i tron, att leva öppet och sökande i den andliga gemenskapen och samtidigt leda den?

    The Christ under Reconstruction: From the Face to the Celestial Machine2018In: Svensk teologisk kvartalskrift, ISSN 0039-6761, Vol. 94, no 3, p. 167-177Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Starting in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's critique of the image of the face of Christ, the article experimentally explores the notion of the cross-event as machine. Through an encounter between Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the abstract machine and Russian avant-garde artist and thinker Liubov Popova's notion of construction, the article explores the multiplicity rather than the singular identity of the Christ-notion; the ongoing creative aspect rather than the origin–telos spectrum. Thus, the article invites non-theological thinkers to throw new light on a theological dilemma: the exclusive and authoritarian aspects of the Christ figure. Finally, alternative images of Christ to be found in the history of Christianity are suggested.

    Theology beyond Representation: Foucault, Deleuze and the Phantasms of Theological Thinking2012Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Theology beyond Representation explores the theological opportunities embedded in Michel Foucault’s and Gilles Deleuze’s critique of Christian thinking and of what they regard as a Christian and oppressive logic of representation. Foucault’s and Deleuze’s thoughts on representation are currently discussed in many fields neighbouring theology (e.g. by feminist Karen Barad, Literary theorist Claire Colebrook), but despite the fact that Foucault and Deleuze address some of the most frequently debated issues in contemporary theology, their thoughts on representation have not yet been fully examined in theology.

    This study offers such an exploration by searching out what new perspectives, forces and notions are brought to light when the critique of representation and the post-representational perspectives in Foucault and Deleuze are allowed to work within theology. It enacts encounters, for example, with the theological contributions of British Radical Orthodox theologian Graham Ward and North American radical theologian Thomas Altizer.

    The book finally suggests that contemporary theology should perhaps not leave its metaphysics behind but understand its task differently. From a post-representational perspective, the Christian God and inherited Christian dogma may be considered actual, affecting our world in reality – our account of meaning as well as our bodies, actions and politics – yet they are actual and real because they are repeated as such and used as such. The Christian truths are, in short, regarded as phantasms. In consequence, a “post-representational theology” would note the force of form, dogma, truths, authorities, eternal gestures and church buildings, but it would not believe in their final power. It would believe in representation, in its effects and its force, but it would also believe in the possibility of moving beyond its expressions, while also believing that expression already moves beyond representation.

    Such a perspective, the book argues, could open up a playful yet serious form of post-Christian resistance: To repeat, parody and play with whatever comes to the fore as eternal, or as the truth of concrete experience – both when reading and when doing theology – in order to make room negatively for those realities, actual but unknown, unthinkable yet possible, that no language could ever capture.
