Current research

The title of my PhD-project is Where Do We Go From Here? An Inquiry into the Role of Religion in Peter Sloterdijk's and Giorgio Agamben's Affirmative Critique of the Present.

The primary aim of the project is to undertake a comparison of religio-philosophical motives in the works of Sloterdijk and Agamben, this is done in order to investigate the influence and consequences of the theological figures of thought and religious motives in the polical-philosophical area of their thinking.

The project thus aims to investigate the role of religion in the two thinkers philosophical projects, not least in order to identify its function in their positive political and anthropological visions.
