Negative-dialectical theology: Critical claims. From the premise of a critique of instrumental rationality, this article explores some consequences of such a critique for church and theology. The author finds an intimate relation between the philosophical critiques of Nietzsche, Adorno and Foucault and his own theological position which may be described as a negative dialectical theology. The article proceeds to show how negative dialectics could provide an alternative to  some aspects of dialectical theology, especially with regard to its relation to the ethical and confessional traditions.
