Reversion of Messiah: How Political Time Stands Against Apocalypse of Linear History
November 13th, 2012Type: Opinion
Author: Chou, Yu-ling Editor: Rikey Tenn
Note: Let's turn our attention to Walter Benjamin’s angle of history, who looks toward the past, but cannot stop his ceaseless flight backward toward the future owing to the violent storm of progress. The angle of history is a metaphor showing us how to resist the linear storm of time. If there's truly an end of our world and we seek for a messianic redemption, he told us messianic is not the end of time, but the time of the end. The writer of “Messianic inversion” will be discussing ‘how to take time to the end’ and which might be an urgent question of our time.
