Summary
  • "In this provocative volume, renowned liberation theology Jung Mo Sung writes that in order to fight for a more just society, it is necessary to elaborate upon the theoretical reflections that critically analyze the faith and myths that support and legitimize the trajectory of contemporary capitalism and its utopia, as well as the faith and the complex relation that exists it between the notions of the subject, complex societies, and alternative utopian horizons."--Provided by publisher
  • "Can one live without hopes or dreams? Can a people live without a view towards their utopian horizons? Hope is as essential as eating and drinking since we are biological and symbolic beings. Hope provides meaning for our lives. Those who dream of and hope for a world without domination and oppression, those who are active in trying to bring about such a world, often struggle with frustration and failure. Jung Mo Sung sheds light on these themes by examining the often overestimated notion of the subject (historical, ethical, and messianic), our ever-increasing understanding of the vast complexity of contemporary society, and the limits of the human condition"--Provided by publisher
