About Hjalmar Falk

I hold a ph.d. in the History of Ideas from the University of Gothenburg. I consider myself an intellectual historian specializing in: modern social, legal, and political thought, historical conceptions of the relationship between politics and religion, and the intellectual history of secularity. I am also very interested in historiography, especially its relation to narratives of secularization and the construction of secularities. I currently teach human rights at SGS.

In my doctoral thesis, Det politisk-teologiska komplexet. Fyra kapitel om Carl Schmitts sekularitet (The Politico-Theological Complex. Four Chapters on the Secularity of Carl Schmitt), I investigate the secularization thesis in the work of the German jurist Carl Schmitt (1888-1985), as well as his conception of "political theology".

Since finishing my ph.d., I have continued working on Schmitt and related matters, extending the scope to encompass the work of thinkers like Karl Löwith and Walter Benjamin. Focus here has been ideas about the relationship between modern philosophies of history and eschatology.
