Althusser on Barth

In “Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses,” Althusser refers to “Feuerbach and the theologico-philosophical school which descends from him, e.g., the theologian Barth” (Lenin and Philosophy, 163). Is this brilliantly insightful, ill-informed, or both?

    According to Barth’s introductory essay to the Essence of Christianity, Althusser’s remark is something like 75% ill-informed, 25% brilliantly insightful.

    I think it is brilliantly insightful given the fact that it is ill-informed.

  3. JD Says:

    Ha! Since I wrote the above without refreshing to receive Gabe’s comment, I defer to his more precise rendering.

    We need more percentages on this blog — it will increase our rigor.

    JD, I was going to defer to your more clever rendering.
