    ‘War of Position’: Liberal Interregnum and the Emergent Ideologies.Adrian Pabst - forthcoming - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary.
    What are the leading forces and ideas that are shaping our age? In the West, a decade of financial disruption, austerity, and stagnant wages has produced a popular rejection of market fundamentalism that prevailed for over forty years. Mass immigration and multiculturalism have contributed to rapid changes in both family and community life that leave many people feeling dispossessed or even humiliated. Unresponsive government is exacerbating people’s sense of powerlessness and anger. The revolt against the status quo is fuelling a (...)

    Modern Sovereignty in Question: Theology, Democracy and Capitalism.Adrian Pabst - 2010 - Modern Theology 26 (4):570-602.
    This essay argues that modern sovereignty is not simply a legal or political concept that is coterminous with the modern nation-state. Rather, at the theoretical level modern sovereign power is inscribed into a wider theological dialectic between “the one” and “the many”. Modernity fuses juridical-constitutional models of supreme state authority with a new, “biopolitical” account of power whereby natural life and the living body of the individual are the object of politics and are subject to state control (section 1). The (...)

  4. Unholy War and Just Peace: Religious Alternatives to Secular Warfare.Adrian Pabst - 2009 - The Politics and Religion Journal 3 (2):209-232.
    This essay argues that contemporary warfare seems to be religious but is in fact secular in nature and as such calls forth religious alternatives. The violence unleashed by Islamic terrorism and the ‘global war on terror’ is secular in this sense that it is unmediated and removes any universal ethical limits from conflicts: unrestrained violence is either a divine injunction which is blindly and fideistically believed; or it is waged in the name of the supremely sovereign state which deploys war (...)

    The Secularism of Post-Secularity: Religion, Realism and the Revival of Grand Theory in IR.Adrian Pabst - unknown
    How to theorise religion in International Relations? Does the concept of post-secularity advance the debate on religion beyond the ‘return of religion’ and the crisis of secular reason? This article argues that the post-secular remains trapped in the logic of secularism. First, a new account is provided of the ‘secularist bias’ that characterises mainstream IR theory: defining religion in either essentialist or epiphenomenal terms; positing a series of ‘antagonistic binary opposites’ such as the secular versus the religious; de-sacralising and re-sacralising (...)

    The Crisis of Capitalist Democracy.Adrian Pabst - 2010 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2010 (152):44-67.
    ExcerptIntroduction Is the neo-liberal era since the mid-1970s synonymous with a corporate capture of the state and the passage to “post-democracy”? And if so, might the failure of neo-liberalism since the onset of the international economic crisis in 2007 and the state-sponsored bailout of global finance presage a return to the primacy of democratic politics over “free-market” economics commonly associated with the post–World War II period? At the time of this writing, it is premature to analyze the aftermath of the (...)

    The Meta-Crisis of Secular Capitalism.Adrian Pabst & John Milbank - unknown
    The current global economic crisis concerns the way in which contemporary capitalism has turned to financialisation as a double cure for both a falling rate of profit and a deficiency of demand. Although this turning is by no means unprecedented, policies of financialisation have depressed demand while at the same time not proving adequate to restore profits and growth. This paper argues that the current crisis is less the ‘normal’ one that has to do with a constitutive need to balance (...)

    From Civil to Political Economy: Adam Smith’s Theological Debt.Adrian Pabst - 2011 - In Paul Oslington (ed.), Adam Smith as Theologian. Routledge.
    The present essay contends that progressive readings of Smith ignore the influence of theological concepts and religious ideas on his work, notably three distinct strands: first, seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural theology; second, Jansenist Augustinianism; third, Stoic arguments of theodicy. Taken together, these theological elements help explain why Smith’s moral philosophy and political economy intensifies the secular early modern and Enlightenment idea that the Fall brought about ‘radical evil’ and a ‘fatherless world’ in need of permanent divine intervention. As such, Smith (...)

    Both modern political economy and capitalism rest on the separation of economics from ethics, which in turn can be traced to a number of shifts within philosophy and theology – notably the move away from practices of reciprocity and the common good towards the sole pursuit of individual freedom and self-interest. In his latest book, Luigino Bruni provides a compelling critique of capitalist markets and an alternative vision that fuses Aristotelian-Thomist virtue ethics with the Renaissance and Neapolitan Enlightenment tradition of (...)

    Athens, Jerusalem, and Rome: A Reply to Luciano Pellicani.Adrian Pabst - 2013 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2013 (162):164-176.
    ExcerptIntroduction In his polemic against revealed religion, Luciano Pellicani makes two fundamental claims that are historically and philosophically misguided. First, he asserts that the Puritans sought to establish a medieval collectivist theocracy, not a modern market democracy. Second, he maintains that the U.S. “culture war” between enlightened secular liberalism and reactionary religious conservatism ultimately rests on the perpetual battle between Athenian reason and the faith of Jerusalem. Accordingly, Pellicani argues that America's commitment to principles such as individual freedom, religious tolerance, (...)

    The Primacy of Relation Over Substance and the Recovery of a Theological Metaphysics.Adrian Pabst - 2007 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 81 (4):553-578.
    This essay concerns the problem of individuation in metaphysics in relation to the question of individuality in politics. It rejects the assumption in muchof ancient, modern, and contemporary philosophy and theology that unity and diversity are opposed and that this opposition produces conflict and violence. Theproposed alternative is a metaphysics and politics of relationality. This alternative is not so much indebted to Aristotle, but instead goes back to Platonist metaphysics and its transformation by Augustine and Boethius. By privileging substance over (...)

    The Politics of Paradox: Metaphysics Beyond “Political Ontology”.Adrian Pabst - 2012 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2012 (161):99-119.
    ExcerptIntroduction Much of nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophy proclaimed the end the metaphysics and the death of God. The German, French, and English strands of the Enlightenment were united in their suspicion of metaphysical theism. Figures as diverse as Comte, Marx, Spencer, Nietzsche, and Russell defended the absolute autonomy of atheist reason against religious faith. Following the rise of partisan ideologies that terrorized the West from 1789 to 1989, the downfall of the Soviet empire appeared to herald the “end of history” (...)

    Hitchens's Crusade.Adrian Pabst - 2012 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2012 (159):187-191.
    ExcerptFive years after its publication, the late Christopher Hitchens's polemic against religion reads like a desperate call-to-arms against believers by a liberal who promises perpetual peace but in reality advocates endless war. The attacks on faith by contemporary militant atheists—Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Stephen Jay Gould, or Sam Harris—are becoming ever more shrill and hysterical, a clear sign of atheist anxiety about their absolute certainty that there are “absolutely no certainties.” Having risen to public, popular prominence with Dawkins's 2006 best-seller (...)

    Fall and Redemption: The Romantic Alternative to Liberal Pessimism.Adrian Pabst - unknown
    From Machiavelli via Hobbes, Locke and Grotius to J.S. Mill and John Rawls, the liberal tradition pivots about the primacy of the individual over all forms of human association and allied to this primacy is the replacing of notions of substan¬tive goodness or truth with the ultimate foundation of society upon subjective rights secured by the power of the central state. Those rights are grounded in the human will and the artifice of the social contract that has supplanted older ideas (...)
