Chapter Summary

This chapter sheds some light on Joseph de Maistre's influence on Walter Benjamin. It aims to clarify the relationship between Maistre and Benjamins theological interpretations of modernity. This will not only facilitate an understanding of the relationship between Maistres ideas and those of Benjamin, but it will also improve the understanding of Benjamins thought. The chapter then demonstrates that Benjamin approaches Joseph de Maistre's thought through Baudelaire. By clarifying the indirect influence of Maistre on Benjamin through Baudelaire, we should be able to shed light on the relationship between their ideas on the theology of modernity.

Keywords: Baudelaire; Joseph de Maistre; Walter Benjamin
