This review locates the 1980 lectures within the context of the wider discussions of Foucault and religion; highlighting the influence of George Dumézil on the comparative and structural analysis. Assessing the problem of the historical accuracy of Christian history in Foucault’s work and the nature of the archaeological approach, the review explor...
Chapter
In this essay, the author shows how Foucault's discussions of pastoral power relate to a wider "analytics" of religious power set down in 1975 and 1976 before he deploys the language of the "pastoral". In shifting the discussion of pastoral power to a wider trajectory, the author considers the question of whether pastoral power persists after the h...
Article
Full-text available
Using Foucault's conceptual frame from The Archaeology of Knowledge to read Foucault's late deployment of "spirituality," this article argues that Foucault's enigmatic gesture in using this concept reveals a refusal of "rupture" from the Christian pre-modern discourse of "spirit." Despite attempts to alter the "field of use," Foucault's genealogica...
Article
Author Jeremy Carette develops original perspectives on the influence of James's father and Calvinism, on the place of the body and sex in James, on the significance of George Eliot's novels, and Herbert Spencer's 'unknown,' revealing a social and political discourse of civil religion and republicanism and a poetic imagination at the heart of James...
Chapter
The basic intention of Foucault is to effect a reconfiguration of the status of knowledge and of the subject insofar as they unquestioningly reflect Enlightenment ideals of truth and autonomy. With regard to knowledge, his aim is to uncover the dynamics of power at work in the production of knowledge systems, while his later writing on the “care of...
Article
William James's 1884 theory of emotion is perhaps the most well known of all his psychological ideas, particularly as it forms a key historical landmark in the history of the concept. His notion of "religious emotion" is perhaps one of the most important in shaping the subject in the twentieth century. The complex history of James's theory of emoti...
Book
In this book Grace Jantzen constructs a Quaker spirituality of beauty as a theological-philosophical response to a world preoccupied with death and violence. Having mapped the foundations of western cultural violence in the Greco-Roman period and the Judea-Christian tradition in Foundations of Violence and Violence to Eternity, she now offers her a...
Book
In this volume Grace M. Jantzen continues her groundbreaking analysis of death and beauty in western thought by examining the religious roots of death and violence in the Jewish and Christian tradition, which underlie contemporary values. She shows how man's fear of the female is often implicated in religious violence and in her critique of the Heb...
Article
Jeremy Carrette argues that the psychology of religion is no longer sustainable without a social critique, and that as William James predicted, the project of the modernist psychology of religion has failed. Controversially he champions greater social and philosophical analysis within the field to challenge the political naivety and disciplinary il...
Article
Journal of the American Academy of Religion 74.2 (2006) 531-533 Intellectual visions and harsh political reality do not always sit together, and the potential for serious errors of judgment increases when traditional academic caution and critique are thrown out in the fervor of transformative hope. The question, however, remains as to whether the a...
Chapter
Cognitive theory and neuroscience have provided many useful models for medical and therapeutic understanding, but the problem with any theory is when it oversteps the limits of its domain or operates on unexamined conceptual foundations. Classification and abstract theorizing have always been a part of the academic study of religion and there is no...
Article
Work on the social theory of emotion has been growing in the last decade, but few have considered how these studies relate to the field of religion. This article is a detailed critical examination of the work of the Croatian–American sociologist Stjepan Mestrovic and his idea of ‘postemotionalism’. It is an exploration of the implications of his wo...
Article
This article seeks to examine the political and economic context of cyborg culture and technology in Elaine Graham's Representations of the Post/Human. It begins by drawing out the relationship between Graham's study and Foucault's genealogical method and seeks to establish the ‘silent machine’ operating in Graham's analysis. By following three cri...
Book
From feng shui to holistic medicine, from aromatherapy candles to yoga weekends, spirituality is big business. It promises to soothe away the angst of modern living, and to offer an antidote to shallow materialism. Selling Spirituality is a short, sharp attack on this fallacy. It shows how spirituality has in fact become a powerful commodity in the...
Article
The difficulty is to discover the archimedic point at which the technique can be applied effectively. We found that the archimedic point of treatment is the psychological level of an individual on which he is truly spontaneous. J L Moreno (1946, 222)
