    Ambivalence. On Sacrifice in Philosophy, Society, and Religion.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2008 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 50 (3-4):189-195.
    SUMMARYI have identified and briefly analyzed three examples of sacrificial logic in the intersection of politics and religion. My analysis, which is based on the texts of Girard, Kierkegaard, and Levinas, concerns the heroic self-sacrifice of soldiers, the religiously motivated sacrifice of the suicide bombers, and the everyday sacrifice of the unborn in the silent rites of the clinic – all three characterized by cultural unease and ambivalence.These examples may indicate why the European Society for Philosophy of Religion had chosen (...)

  2. Autopsia: Self, Death, and God After Kierkegaard and Derrida.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2008 - Walter de Gruyter.
    There are certain things that can be explained and certain things that cannot be explained. This book is about the latter. It is a book about death: how death interrupts and influences the reflection on the self. It is a book about God: a detailed and critical discussion on how Kierkegaard and Derrida apply the concept of God in their philosophical reflections. The most ground-breaking analysis concerns the famous passage on the self in The Sickness unto Death, where the author (...)

    Ecophilosophy and the Ambivalence of Nature: Kierkegaard and Knausgård on Lilies, Birds and Being.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2021 - Kierkegaard Studies Yearbook 26 (1):325-350.
    In The Lily in the Field and the Bird of the Air, Kierkegaard presents a succinct critique of Romantic aesthetics, in line with contemporary critiques of ecocriticism and ecophilosophy, e.g. by Timothy Morton. Whereas Romantic poets see nature as a mirror of their inner thoughts and pathos, thereby divinising themselves and their creativity, Kierkegaard emphasises the authority of the Creator and the exteriority of nature. He identifies the consequences of such Romantic self-infatuation on all levels of discourse: aesthetics, ethics, epistemology (...)

    Immorality.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2011 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 53 (4):450-464.
    Morality and immorality is a complex issue in Martin Luther's thought and the complexity increases the more he unfolds the topic. In the course of his controversy with Erasmus, he meets a well founded criticism of his own moralization. In the first three sections of this article I discuss their respective positions and the consequences of a moral vs. an immoral interpretation of Scripture. In the last three sections I proceed to inquire whether immorality or rather a-morality may play a (...)

    Sovereignty and Submission: Luther’s Political Theology and the Violence of Christian Metaphysics.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2018 - Studies in Christian Ethics 31 (4):435-451.
    The classical controversy between Carl Schmitt and Eric Peterson goes directly to the heart of the matter: What is ‘political theology’ about? Is it a descriptive or normative endeavour, oriented towards history or political influence on contemporary issues? This article explores these questions with reference to Protestant theology, in particular the writings of Martin Luther. Protestant theology has often emphasised the basic difference between the spiritual and political spheres, but I question the validity of this distinction with respect to Luther’s (...)

    The Body Unbound: Philosophical Perspectives on Politics, Embodiment and Religion.Marius Timmann Mjaaland, Ola Sigurdson & Sigríður Þorgeirsdóttir (eds.) - 2010 - Cambridge Scholars Press.
    A philosophical inquiry into politics, embodiment and religion takes us straight to some of contemporary culture's most notorious issues: suicide bombing, the veiled and the exposed body, and present-day biopolitics. Interpretations of the body have always been contested, both in the history of philosophy and in the history of religions. On the one hand, the body has been perceived as a prison, binding the soul to transience, darkness, and confusion. Yet on the other hand, it has itself been controlled and (...)

    The Hidden God: Luther, Philosophy, and Political Theology.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2015 - Indiana University Press.
    In this phenomenological reading of Luther, Marius Timmann Mjaaland shows that theological discourse is never philosophically neutral and always politically loaded. Raising questions concerning the conditions of modern philosophy, religion, and political ideas, Marius Timmann Mjaaland follows a dark thread of thought back to its origin in Martin Luther. Thorough analyses of the genealogy of secularization, the political role of the apocalypse, the topology of the self, and the destruction of metaphysics demonstrate the continuous relevance of this highly subtle thinker.

    Theologica Paradoxa: Dialog und Disputation als Sprachformen evangelischen Denkens.Marius Timmann Mjaaland - 2021 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 63 (2):203-225.
    ZusammenfassungIn der Heidelberger Disputation lehnt Luther die aristotelische Anthropologie und den scholastischen Gottesbegriff ab. Stattdessen behauptet er die Einheit der Verborgenheit Gottes am Kreuz und der paradoxalen Liebe Gottes zu den Menschen. Nicht nur in diesem Fall, sondern dauerhaft und durchgehend scheint die polemische und zugespitzte Form der Disputation die evangelische Theologie geprägt zu haben – im Guten wie im Schlechten. Ich gehe daher der Frage nach, wie die Sprachformen der Disputation und des Dialogs dieses Denken diskursiv formatiert haben. Die (...)
