“The Neighbor” converted into Persian
“The Neighbor: Three Inquiries in Political Theology” has been rendered into Persian. The book holds three inquiries by contemporary intellectuals about the concept of neighbor.
IBNA: In The Neighbor, three of the most significant intellectuals working in psychoanalysis and critical theory collaborate to show how the problem of neighbor-love opens questions that are fundamental to ethical inquiry and that suggest a new theological configuration of political theory.
Their three extended essays explore today's central historical problem: the persistence of the theological in the political.
In "Towards a Political Theology of the Neighbor," Kenneth Reinhard supplements Carl Schmitt's political theology of the enemy and friend with a political theology of the neighbor based in psychoanalysis.
In "Miracles Happen," Eric L. Santner extends the book's exploration of neighbor-love through a bracing reassessment of Benjamin and Rosenzweig. And in an impassioned plea for ethical violence, Slavoj Žižek's "Neighbors and Other Monsters" reconsiders the idea of excess to rehabilitate a positive sense of the inhuman and challenge the influence of Levinas on contemporary ethical thought.
The book is translated into Persian by Fattah Mohammadi. It is to be marketed in Iran by Hezareh Sevvom.
