Economia do Desejo: Cristianismo e Capitalismo


Foi lançado o livro The Economy of Desire: Christianity and Capitalism in a Postmodern World, de Daniel M. Bell.

Muito interessante. O site Center for Law and Religion Forum relata que:

Bell engages the work of two important postmodern philosophers, Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault, to illuminate the nature of the postmodern world that the church currently inhabits. He considers how the global economy deforms desire in a manner that distorts human relations with God and one another. In contrast, he presents Christianity and the tradition of the works of mercy as a way beyond capitalism and socialism, beyond philanthropy and welfare. Christianity heals desire, renewing human relations and enabling communion with God. This book will work well for courses in theology and ethics, philosophical theology, discipleship, and Christianity and culture. Pastors and church leaders will also find it enlightening.

Este eu vou comprar.
