Los oprimidos como luz. Benjamin, Kafka, teología de la liberación

Revista de Filosofía (Madrid) 34 (2):157-174 (2009)

This article highlights the dialect of failure and hope you can find in the oppressed, which every utopical thought should take into consideration. To justify it, we start from Walter Benjamin’s ideas on History, and in particular, we consider the perspective of the oppressed in Kafka’s literature, although he considered hope as a weak hint among catastrophe. And finally, we show this dialect as a specific and explicit place of the Liberation Theology
