    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Can secularisation in the legal and political domains settle modernity’s scores with religion? Anton Schütz and Marinos Diamantides provide a genealogical mapping of the universalisation/secularisation thesis that is both widely saluted and mistrusted as master narrative of modern political and normative history. Questions the outdated suggestions of Carl Schmitt’s political theology Builds upon a refined version of Giorgio Agamben’s close-reading of Christian government as management Identifies Western-Christian tensions within jurisprudence Concludes that what the West’s secular universality is passing off as 'politics' or 'law' is really an attempt to manage its own dwindling primacy
