About the Blog...

Hauntotheology is a space where I will engage the specters of theology and the specters of critical theory. Since the line between philosophy and theology is always already blurred, I am interested in a “close reading” (Jacques Derrida) of “texts” (and the specters of those who have read them) as they intersect modern and postmodern theorists. It is at this intersection of text, politics, and philosophy where one often discovers a critically important understanding of their own context(s). It is my hope that this space offers you a deeper perspective into “familiar” texts and concepts.

The best interests of theology lie not in God in the highest but in the depths of God, something deep within God, even older than God, or deeper than God, and for that very same reason, deep within us, we and God always being intertwined.
— John D. Caputo
