    Introduction: Whose Present? Which History?Daniel Steinmetz-Jenkins - forthcoming - Modern Intellectual History:1-12.
    There can be little doubt that the history profession is experiencing a turn to the present. The post-2016 “crisis of democracy” has only dramatized it. Long-standing anxieties over presentism have crumbled under the weight of recent events. They have proven little match for Brexit, Trump, the rise of strongmen in the world writ large, racial injustice, and the pandemic. The turn to the present, however, is at times marked by undeniable provincialism—one that consistently offers a narrow perspective for understanding new (...)

    Why Did Raymond Aron Write That Carl Schmitt Was Not a Nazi? An Alternative Genealogy of French Liberalism.Daniel Steinmetz-Jenkins - 2014 - Modern Intellectual History 11 (3):549-574.
    In hisMémoires, published in the year of his death in 1983, Raymond Aron—the French sociologist and Cold War champion of liberalism—astonishingly remarked that as a man of high culture Carl Schmitt could have never been a Nazi. Aron's defenders have typically downplayed his mature views on Schmitt: for how else could the main defender of the liberal faith in France devote himself to salvaging the reputation of the greatest antiliberal of the age? This essay argues, however, that Aron's bizarre statements (...)

  4. A God Over God Versus The Political Over Politics?: Schelling, Lefort and the Originary Identity of Theological and Political Form.Daniel Steinmetz-Jenkins - 2010 - Ars Disputandi 10.
    The partial aim of this paper is to suggest that Merleau-Ponty’s ontology is prefigured in Schelling’s conception of God as presented in Ages of the World. This will specifically be demonstrated by explicating the parallels between Merleau-Ponty’s paradoxical notion of the flesh and Schelling’s equally complex idea of Ungrund. Understanding the significance of Schelling’s influence on Merleau-Ponty becomes pivotal upon the recognition that the contemporary French political philosopher Claude Lefort’s idea of the political instituting politics is directly linked to Merleau-Ponty’s (...)

    Michael Oakeshott’s Theological Genealogy of Political Modernity.Daniel Steinmetz-Jenkins - 2014 - The European Legacy 19 (3):323-334.
    This essay attempts to provide a historical account of Michael Oakeshott’s famous distinction between civil and enterprise association. As such, it demonstrates that Oakeshott’s political skepticism and his concomitant view of civil association can in part be explained by his reliance on Augustinian theology. In a similar vein, Oakeshott’s linkage of enterprise association with the rationalism of Bacon must be considered in terms of Oakeshott’s understanding of Pelagianism and Gnosticism. Unsurprisingly, it will be demonstrated that despite Oakeshott’s disagreements with the (...)
