I am currently about halfway through Davis Hankins’ The Book of Job and the Immanent Genesis of Transcendence. I had vaguely thought of writing something on Job some time in the future, but I am pleased to announce that his book renders anything I might do redundant. I also quietly note that this is a book that seems to have no title, but only a subtitle.
Future (non-class, not directly research-relevant) reading, in no particular order:
- Kristin Ross, Communal Luxury: The Political Imaginary of the Paris Commune
- David Porter, Constantine the Emperor
- Knut Vikør, Between God and the Sultan: A History of Islamic Law
- Mary-Jane Rubenstein, Worlds Without End: The Many Lives of the Multiverse
(I am also on volume 2 of Knausgaard’s My Struggle, but that’s more of a lifestyle choice than an item on a reading list.)
What about you, dear readers? What is populating your to-be-read pile?
