Paul North

Paul North is Professor of German at Yale University. He works on nonaesthetic theories of art, anti-cognitive theories of thinking, and another use for theology that is neither political theology nor theo-political critique. His latest book, The Yield: Kafka’s Atheological Reformation (Stanford: Stanford UP, 2015), presents the latter. An edited volume, Messianic Thought outside Theology (New York: Fordham UP, 2014), followed a book on intermittent experience, The Problem of Distraction (Stanford Stanford UP, 2012). His articles address topics such as comparative concepts of diaspora, the phenomenality of the modern state, Benjamin’s theory of „apparent critique,“ and Hölderlin’s notion of poetic thinking.
