The Theistic Turn?
A noteworthy book that's just come out in English translation: Regis Debray's Praised Be Our Lords: The Autobiography (Verso). Debray, a student of Althusser, a companion of Che Guevara in Bolivia, and an advisor to the Mitterand government, is an interesting character. Why should Ref21 readers give him a look? He's one of those thinkers who has come to see theism (at least, the idiom of theism) as providing a response to postmodern thinking. A French Eagleton who has led a more exciting life but lacks the sense of humour. `I seek truth: that is my mental tropism. My body itself wanted power.' If that isn't a good statement of the human condition, I don't know what is.
