Summary
"This book presents an intellectual history of Gnosticism in postwar German philosophy: Jacob Taubes, Hans Blumenberg, Eric Voegelin, Hans Jonas, Gershom Scholem, and Odo Marquard and their interpretations of the relation between Gnosticism and modernity. Recognizing Gnosticism's world-negation in modernity's rejection of spiritual meaning, they claimed to have 'no spiritual investment in the world as it is'"--
