Carlson historicizes contingency by tying it to its theological and etymological roots in "touch," contending that its disruptive power is specific to our current moment. A strikingly original reconsideration of one of continental philosophy and critical theory's most cherished concepts, this book reveals the limits of historicist accounts.
