Blanton demanding situations the assumption of Paulinism as a pop Platonic worldview or type of social regulate. He finds in Pauline legacies differently repressed assets for brand spanking new materialist spiritualities and new kinds of radical political cohesion, releasing "religion" from inherited interpretive assumptions so philosophical proposal can occur in dicy, radical freedom.
