The Rebellious No

Vahanian Book Cover
We are pleased to announce the publication of Professor Noelle Vahanian’s new book, “The Rebellious No: Variations on a Secular Theology of Language.” The book is published in the prestigious “Perspectives in Continental Philosophy” series with Fordham University Press.

One reviewer of the book has written, “The Rebellious No is an important and original contribution to contemporary theological thinking. Vahanian’s secular theology of language is intense, meditative and brilliant, and culminates in a profound vision of how rebellion and love are inseparable from each other.” And the philosopher Catherine Malabou has compared Vahanian’s work to that of Heidegger and Levinas, two of the most important and influential philosophers of the twentieth century.

The department will be having a book release party for Professor Vahanian on Wednesday, March 12th.
