Faith Harassed by Belief

Faith Harassed by Belief

(p.249) Fourteen Faith Harassed by Belief

François Laruelle

, Robin Mackay
Columbia University Press

This chapter examines how the conflation of faith and belief, of messianity and the world, affects faith as revealed by Christ. It first considers what distinguishes the individual subject determined in-the-last-instance as faithful from the old subject of philosophical belief from which he is extracted, as its clone. It then looks at the quantum interpretation of original sin, along with the connection between faith and temptation. It also discusses how the Jewish and Greek givens are conjugated under Christ as “imaginary number”; the generic formalization of certain Christian notions such as “Christ,” “Life,” and “Resurrection”; the distinction between philo-fiction and its religious modelization; the end or sacrificial consummation of transcendent religion through the affirmation of generic immanence; and the constitution by cloning of a Stranger-subject for whom the announced end is already realized, or immanent.

Keywords:   faith, belief, messianity, Christ, faithful, original sin, temptation, Resurrection, philo-fiction, immanence
