Phenomenologies of Scripture

Emmanuel Housset

Fordham University Press

In this chapter, Emmanuel Housset examines the affective dimensions of Paul’s conception of community in Ephesians 4:1-4. According to that passage, Christians are called to live with “humility, gentleness, and patience.” For Housset, those three affects constitute a Christian way of “being-thrown” into the world. Thus the affects are not normative virtues or subjective sentiments, but the very conditions of a Christian existence that exceeds the purely human possibilities of “social dispersion and violence.”
