Die symbolische Macht der Apokalypse
Eine kritisch-materialistische Kulturgeschichte politischer Endzeit
[The Symbolic Power of the Apocalypse: A Critical-Materialistic Cultural History of Modern Times]
Aims and Scope
How can one address the multiple themes linked to the "apocalypse" – the end days, the last judgment, Armageddon, catastrophe, as well as personal revelation and collective disillusionment? How should we understand pre-modern and "secular" notions of the end days? This study offers a cultural critique, exploring the conditions surrounding "apocalyptic" knowledge and vision.
