Identity, ethics, and nonviolence in postcolonial theory : a Rahnerian theological assessment

Author: Susan Abraham
Publisher: New York : Palgrave Macmillan, 2007.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In this book, Abraham argues that a theological imagination can expand the contours of postcolonial theory through a reexamination of notions of subjectivity, gender, and violence in a dialogical model with Karl Rahner. She raises the question of whether postcolonial theory, with its disavowal of religious agency, can provide an invigorating occasion for Catholic theology.
