This collection explores the recent turn to theology in the Continental Tradition resulting from the critique of presence, and the corresponding need to engage with nothingness. The world emerges from out of nothing, from out of that which is not (at least, is not yet). Nothingness, in other words, is transformative. Eleven scholars here examine the ways that the emptiness of experience can claim our trust. From thoughtful engagement with the principle texts of diverse theological, philosophical and literary traditions to deeply skeptical accounts of the manipulation of our anxieties, these authors chronicle a new understanding of the movement of nothingness. By insisting on the ultimate framelessness of the question, while moving across numerous fields to stake the argument, the work shows why that tradition of thinking remains relevant for our increasingly technological world. The collection includes never before published work and one never before translated piece.
