Incarnation & the Rupture of Everything in All Time?

Lisa Isherwood


This paper engages particularly with Noelle Vahanian’s gospel which investigates the use of words but specifically with old words meaning new things and the subversion of categories that can and should ensue. Discourse he claims impacts matter since matter is already discursive. My contribution to an insurrectionist manifesto is to claim that a new enfleshed understanding of Christian incarnationalism focussed to date on THE abstract Word brings about a relational entanglement of all that is within the created order which leads to the abandonment of dualistic metaphysics and the full embrace of discursive flesh.
