"In The Intercultural Challenge of Raimon Panikkar, sixteen men and women steeped in the multi-layered, multi-cultural texture of Panikkar's unique gifts are gathered to consider his profound contributions to philosophy of religions and interreligious dialogue. Born in Spain of a Spanish mother and Indian father, Panikkar is a Catholic priest who considers himself a practicing Hindu and a secularist as well as a Catholic. Professor Emeritus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, Panikkar holds doctorates in chemistry, philosophy, and theology and has given lectures worldwide, including the prestigious Gifford Lectures in Edinburgh (soon to be published by Orbis as The Rhythm of Being.) Panikkar's many books include The Unknown Christ of Hinduism, The Silence of God: The Answer of the Buddha, and The Cosmotheandric Experience."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Raimon Panikkar: A Companion to his Life and Thought is a guide to the life, work and thought of Raimon Panikkar, a self-professed Buddhist-Christian-Hindu philosopher and theologian. A man of deep and wide learning and an extremely prolific author, Panikkar is equally at home in various religious and cultural traditions and embodies in himself the ideals of intercultural, intrareligious, and interreligious dialogues. This book explicates Panikkar's basic vision of life as the harmonious rhythm of divinity, humanity, and the cosmos, which he terms cosmotheandrism, and shows how it permeates and illumines his articulations of the central Christian doctrines. Given the complexity and difficulty of Panikkar's thought this book is a welcome companion for a course on Panikkar and for a general reader who wishes to understand one of the most profound and orginal thinkers of our time.

This volume contains the Proceedings of the Symposium on the Dialogical Dialogue and Raimon Panikkar held in Baltimore, November 2013. The idea grew into two separate events, both held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion (AAR) in Baltimore in November 2013. One was the Friday symposium, under the auspices of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy, on the dialogical philosophy of Raimon Panikkar (November 22). The other event was the Roundtable panel for the Comparative Studies in Religion Section of the AAR on the legacy of Panikkar's imparative study of religion (November 24), presided by Gerald James Larson (UC Santa Barbara) . The Presenters were Milena Carrara Pavan (President of Vivarium), John Blackman (practicing lawyer, San Francisco), Bret W. Davis (Loyola University Maryland), Roberta Cappellini (President, CIRPIT), Purushottama Bilimoria (University of Melbourne, UC Berkeley), Abraham Vélez de Cea (Eastern Kentucky University), Joseph Prabhu (California State University Los Angeles), Francis Clooney (Harvard University), Fred Dallmayr (University of Notre Dame), Young-Chan Ro (George Mason University & University of Notre Dame), Michiko Yusa (Western Washington University), Catherine Cornille (Boston College).

The doctrine of the Trinity is one of the most distinguishing marks of Christian faith. This is the first book to present an overview of the role of the Trinity in Christian theology in relation to religious pluralism and other religions. Approaching the study of the relationship between Christianity and other religions from the perspective of the Trinity, this book surveys all the major contributions to the topic by leading theologians at the international and ecumenical level. Veli-Matti Karkkainen points to future challenges and areas in need of development, examining in detail a case study exploring how the Catholic Church has responded to Islam from the perspective of the Trinity. Students of theology and religious studies will find this an invaluable text for courses that discuss religious pluralism and Christianity's relation to other religions. Pastors, other Christian workers, and academics will also find it a handy reference tool for teaching and further study.

"Searching for God draws upon the traditional categories of systematic theology as it guides readers through the Catholic theological thought process involved in the search for God. At each step we examine the work of a past thinker from the time of the early church up to the early twentieth century, and a present thinker whose works are often required reading in theology courses. Not only do readers have the opportunity to critically evaluate several important theological works in the Catholic tradition, they can also enter into dialogue with those works as they engage in their own search for God."--Provided by publisher.

This study gives a detailed analysis of the theology of religions of Raimon Panikkar (b. 1918), a Catalan-born Hindu-Christian. His radical pluralism is found to be based on his idiosyncratic "cosmotheandrism," and even to show signs of inclusivism.

Peace can ultimately be obtained only by cultural disarmament, which requires that absolutism be abandoned for true reconciliation through ongoing intercultural dialogues.
Author: Raimundo Panikkar
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press
The world's inhabitants are clearly not only interdependent but singly unable to achieve peace. In this important and timely book, philosopher and theologian Raimon Panikkar deals with the crucial issues of our time - peace, war, religion, ecology - as he redefines true peace and offers a way to achieve it in the world. Peace, he argues, requires more than nuclear, military, or economic disarmament. Peace can ultimately be obtained only by cultural disarmament, which requires that absolutism be abandoned for true reconciliation through ongoing intercultural dialogues.
To remain relevant religious traditions have to come in touch with one another's symbolic world of meaning.

To remain relevant religious traditions have to come in touch with one another's symbolic world of meaning. For this interreligious education is necessary because it leads to the discovery of the interrelationship of traditions, promotes collaboration on projects of universal welfare and gives direction and content to interreligious dialogue. The aim is to realize unity in difference and to work for the transformation of society and the cosmos (which holds the human family together) through commitment to justice and peace. This could make traditions concretize their vision of the Infinite.

This book is a comprehensive philosophical study and critical assessment of Raimon Panikkar's work. It explores the context, the unique approach and the impact of Panikkar's cosmotheandric vision of reality. A major contribution of this study is its analysis of the secular implications of this well-known philosopher-theologian's vision - as seen, moreover, from an Indian and cross-cultural perspective.

Essays reflecting on the prolific, pioneering, and wide-ranging scholarship of Fred Dallmayr. Prolific and pioneering, Fred Dallmayr has been an active scholar for over fifty years. His research interests include modern and contemporary political theory, hermeneutics, phenomenology, the Frankfurt School, continental political thought, democratic theory, multiculturalism, environmentalism, and cosmopolitanism. Dallmayr is also one of the founders of comparative political thought and his interest in non-Western political theory spans Chinese, Islamic, Indian, Buddhist, and Latin American traditions. In emulation of the vast interdisciplinary and international character of Dallmayr’s work, this book draws upon senior and emerging scholars from an array of disciplines and countries, with essays that are philosophical (in the Western and non-Western traditions), cultural and/or political, and international. Dallmayr himself responds to the essays in a concluding chapter. “This book is both unique and outstanding. In very few other volumes have I come across such cross-cultural, diverse, and high quality responses to an author’s work. It is truly rare to find a volume that is so broad ranging and at the same time clearly and coherently organized, just as it is rare to find a scholar of Dallmayr’s range and depth. He counts as one of the great humanists of our time, and this book is a richly merited tribute to him.” — Joseph Prabhu, editor of The Intercultural Challenge of Raimon Panikkar

Dreaming a New Earth concerns itself with ultimate questions: the survival of humanity and planet earth. instead of proposing theoretical or political solutions, the book anticipates the birth of a new culture and civilisation through the path of dialogue with indigenous traditions. accordingly, this work highlights the wisdom of Indigenous Australian and Asian-Pacific peoples. In so doing, the western approach to reality, dominated by reason and theoretical analysis, is confronted with a more holistic vision in which the voice of the Spirit inspires dreams and sacred stories. Humanity is invited to re-experience the sacredness of nature and the mystery of existence.In short, we are called (in aboriginal parlance) to a "new Dreaming" or (according to the religious traditions) a radical conversion (metanoia) of mind, heart and soul. if there is to be genuine spiritual re-birth and cultural transformation in our paradoxically globalised and fractured world, we can no longer afford to ignore the ancient wisdom of primal cultures and indigenous traditions. Dialogue with earth-centred spiritualities and oral traditions is shown to be not only possible but, indeed, also crucial for our survival.Dreaming a New Earth also presents in a fresh way the mature insight of raimon Panikkar (1918-2010) whose original and creative contribution to religious and cultural dialogue is well recognised. his understanding of the dynamic interrelatedness of body (cosmic dimension), mind (consciousness dimension) and spirit (depth dimension) - what he calls the "cosmotheandric vision" - is shown to be clearly at play in the cultures of indigenous australians and other asian-Pacific peoples. In other language, Indigenous traditions teach us an often-forgotten lesson: the whole cosmos is sa

In the modern era, solutions to many environmental problems appear to be beyond the reach of a dialogue based solely on argumentation, dialectics, and the presentation of 'evidence.' The purpose of this study is to construct a bridge between incommensurable ways of perceiving reality, a bridge that can facilitate dialogue across worldview boundaries on environmental issues. This book attempts to link ecology, philosophy, and theology through an exploration of a new model of intercultural dialogue. Case studies provide practical and theoretical applications, which lead to a deeper understanding of not only environmental guardianships but also the fundamental relationship between human beings and nature's being.

Interfaith dialogue in a plural world. This volume is based on the belief that both the ecumenical and interfaith movements are looking for new orientations for their future.
Author: S. Wesley Ariarajah
Publisher: Fortress Press
Interfaith dialogue in a plural world. This volume is based on the belief that both the ecumenical and interfaith movements are looking for new orientations for their future. The forces of globalization, communications revolution, and massive population movements challenge some of the theological assumptions and presuppositions on which they were built. The entry of deep and divisive religious sentiments into the public space and the rise of militant forms of religious expression call on the interfaith movement to move beyond traditional forms of dialogue; the challenge is to enter into a deeper engagement on the purpose and role of religious traditions in society. The impasse facing these movements can only be overcome by new orientations as they look to the future. This volume is not specifically on this problem. However, the collection of essays included in this volume, although first given as lectures or written as articles, traces past developments, identifies the challenges these movements face today, and suggests fresh theological moves to regain the initiatives to bring human communities closer together.

The book is a protest against some geopolitical agendas which are pushing the world toward a major global war, and possibly toward a nuclear apocalypse. As an antidote, the book issues a call to people everywhere to oppose this rush to destruction and to restore the "wholeness of humanity" through the quest for just peace.
