    The Revenge of the Words: On Language’s Historical and Autonomous Being and its Effects on ‘Secularisation’.Kristof K. P. Vanhoutte - 2020 - Hts Theological Studies 76 (2).
    What if language was an autonomous historical being? What if language’s use was not solely dependent on the intentions of the one who speaks? In this text I will test these provocative statements. Specifically, I will investigate whether language’s proclaimed historical independence can be traced in the usage of the concept of ‘secularisation’, and I will try to unveil the consequences of this operation.Contribution: Has Christianity abandoned the public stage in the ‘secularised’ and industrialised world? In this article I intend (...)

    Saramago’s Philosophical Heritage.Carlo Salzani & Kristof K. P. Vanhoutte (eds.) - 2018 - Springer Verlag.
    The past decades have seen a growing “philosophical” interest in a number of authors, but strangely enough Saramago’s oeuvre has been left somewhat aside. This volume aims at filling this gap by providing a diverse range of philosophical perspectives and expositions on Saramago’s work. The chapters explore some possible issues arising from his works: from his use of Plato’s allegory of the cave to his re-readings of Biblical stories; from his critique and “reinvention” of philosophy of history to his allegorical (...)

    Limbo Reapplied: On Living in Perennial Crisis and the Immanent Afterlife.Kristof K. P. Vanhoutte - 2018 - Springer Verlag.
    The observation that our world is signed by a lasting crisis is as much underwritten as it is questioned. This book offers a new and provocative thesis by taking recourse to the religious discourse of Limbo, and by investigating the temporal and spatial structures of crisis and modernity. Modernity reveals itself to be the state of perennial crisis, and we all live in an immanentized state of Limbo.

    Philosophy as the In-Between.Kristof K. P. Vanhoutte - 2011 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 54 (4):398-409.
    What is the difference between doing philosophy and doing the history of philosophy? Where should the line be drawn between ?using? previous philosophers to make one's point and discussing what past philosophers claimed? In trying to confront these questions, this essay starts with a reflection on the difference between doing philosophy and doing the history of philosophy as proposed by the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, and confronts it with a different one derived from the German philosopher Martin Heidegger. The ideas (...)

    Only the Country of the Blind Will Have a King. On Žižek's Non-Lucid Reading of Saramago's Essay on Lucidity [Seeing].Kristof K. P. Vanhoutte - 2013 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 7 (4).
    Mis-readings are not necessarily detrimental, Slavoj Žižek has interestingly argued. In this article, we investigate a mis-reading by the hand of Žižek himself. José Saramago’s intriguing novel Seeing, that tells the story of the massive casting of blank ballots by the population and its political implications, has frequently been mentioned in some of Slavoj Žižek recent work. However, not once has Žižek offered his readers the correct message present in the plot of Seeing. But how do have to interpret this (...)
