What Good is Theory? Religion, Critique, and Truth
Theory in its critical modality can show us what the world conceals. It can name and challenge the obfuscations of wealth, whiteness, patriarchy, and power in its multitude of forms. But does it reveal truth? If not, what kinds of relation to truth might theory pursue? Do theory’s critical commitments make it necessarily proximate to the secular? Is there a place in critical theory for what we might call critical theology? Or, inversely, what is the place of critique within political theology? What might allow elements within critical theory and elements of religious traditions to engage in converging projects, around truth, power, or the good?
