Thinking Through Crisis

James Edward Ford III

Fordham University Press

Notebook 4 questions the impact of the dark proletariat’s activities on its own affects. It also ponders how the theological imaginary enables or represses liberatory political visions during social breakdown. It investigate Hurston’s novel Moses, Man of the Mountain: An Anthropology of Power, its contemporary relevance during the “second Great Depression,” its place in Hurston’s intellectual-aesthetic project, and the Spinozist and Nietzschean philosophies informing Hurston’s take on several key themes regarding the multitude and messianism.
