In The Lesson of Carl Schmitt, Meier identifies the middle of Schmitt’s suggestion as political theology—that is, political theorizing that says to have its final flooring within the revelation of a mysterious or suprarational God. This radical, yet half-hidden, theological starting place underlies the full of Schmitt’s usually tough and complicated oeuvre, wealthy in ancient turns and political convolutions, intentional deceptions and accidental obfuscations.

 

In 4 chapters on morality, politics, revelation, and historical past, Meier clarifies the variation among political philosophy and Schmitt’s political theology and relates the spiritual size of his notion to his help for nationwide Socialism and his carrying on with anti-Semitism. New to this version are essays that tackle the lately released correspondences of Schmitt—particularly with Hans Blumberg—and the sunshine it sheds on his belief of political theology.
