Reviews - What do customers think about Critical Theory of Religion?
helpful synthesis Apr 10, 2000
Hewitt brings together approaches to the pursuit of justice from two disparate strands: the Frankfurt School and contemporary feminist theology. She aims to use the critical theory of primarily Adorno to push feminist theology away from theology and toward a critical theory of religion. Ultimately, this means that she wants theologians to worry less about the ontological status of God and more about what will promote just social relations. Her analysis explicates Adorno's rather complicated ideas about the violence of identity with sheer clarity, making for a highly readable argument of a provocative thesis. I read this book while working a very depressing temp-job, and found her (and Adorno's) insistence on maintaining contact with the unjust and damaging nature of current social structures to be quite on the mark.
