Why Religion? Towards a Critical Philosophy of ...

This book examines the relation between religion and jurisprudence, God, and peace respectively. It argues that in order to elucidate the possible role religion can play in the contemporary world, it is useful to analyse religion by associating it with other concepts. Why peace? Because peace is probably the greatest promise made by religions and the greatest concern in the contemporary world. Why jurisprudence? Because, quoting Kelsen's famous book "Peace through Law", peace is usually understood as something achievable by international legal instruments. But what if we replace "Peace through Law" with "Peace through Religion"? Does law, as an instrument for achieving peace, incorporate a religious dimension? Is law, ultimately, a religious and normative construction oriented to peace, to the protection of humanity, in order to keep humans from the violence of nature? Is the hope for peace rational, or just a question of faith? Is religion itself a question of faith or a rational choice? Is the relatively recent legal concept of "responsibility to protect" a secular expression of the oldest duty of humankind? The book follows the structure of interdisciplinary research in which the international legal scholar, the moral philosopher, the philosopher of religion, the theologian, and the political scientist contribute to the construction of the necessary bridges. Moreover, it gives voice to different monotheistic traditions and, more importantly, it analyses religion in the various dimensions in which it determines the authors' cultures: as a set of rituals, as a source of moral norms, as a universal project for peace, and as a political discourse.

The Disintegration of the American Dream and th...
36,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Modern American plays have generally delved into problems facing American society, such as sexual abuse, violence, and the decay of family connections. Some critics contend that these problems stem from a 20th century American style of life based on materialism and the quest for wealth as a way to attain happiness embodied in the American Dream. However, other scholars question whether these issues, particularly the decay of family relationships, mirror the demise of the American Dream. This book addresses the problematic issue of the disintegration of the American Dream and its direct influence on the decay of family relationships. The study examines how American playwrights incorporate Freudian psychology into their dramas, how characters psychologically experience the American Dream and its dissolution in the 20th century, and how such perception influences family life. This psychoanalytic analysis explicates the psychological problems of family members and the characters' emotional realities, which are intertwined with the characters' psychological views of the disintegration of the American Dream.

Given the challenges facing the world, it is necessary to incorporate new approaches in how things are done. Stressing that this is time for solutions not trading of blames, this book introduces what it calls alternative diplomacy, highlighting its relevance and why turning to it is expedient. Using The Elders, an organization composed of eminent former world leaders it contends that peaceful approaches in tackling issues are quite fruitful, yielding plausible results without leaving seeds of future conflicts. Coercion and intrigues as often used in Track I Diplomacy are increasingly counterproductive. Soft power, especially when used within the framework of alternative diplomacy is quite rewarding. Many things have evolved including the causes and nature of violence. Therapies must evolve proportionately because new maladies will not respond adequately to old therapies. Stakeholders should thus break free from holdbacks and urge themselves to dare to think and act differently. This will be an important material for diplomats, people interested in world affairs, foreign policy, as well as humanitarian and peace workers, especially those in reconciliation & peacebuilding circles.

World Best Philosophy of Bhagavad Gita:Gita is ...
79,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Krishna. At the start of the Dharma Yudhha (righteous war) between Pandavas and Kauravas, Arjuna is filled with moral dilemma and despair about the violence and death the war will cause. He wonders if he should renounce and seeks Krishna's counsel, whose answers and discourse constitute the Bhagadvad Gita. Krishna counsels Arjuna to "fulfill his Kshatriya (warrior) duty to uphold the Dharma" through "selfless action". The Krishna-Arjuna dialogue cover a broad range of spiritual topics, touching upon ethical dilemmas and philosophical issues that go far beyond the war Arjuna faces. The Bhagavad Gita presents a synthesis of Hindu ideas about dharma, theistic bhakti, and the yogic paths to moksha. The synthesis presents four paths to spirituality - jnana, bhakti, karma, and raja yogas. These incorporate ideas from the Samkhya-Yoga and Vedanta philosophies. Numerous commentaries have been written on the Bhagavad Gita with widely differing views on the essentials.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides fresh sociological analyses on family violence in Japan. Aimed at an international audience, the authors adopt a life course perspective in presenting their research. Following a comprehensive overview of family violence in Japan in both historical and contemporary contexts, it then goes on to define the extent and causes of child abuse, intimate partner violence, filial violence, and elder abuse. In doing so, the book is the first of its kind to look at these different types of violence in Japanese families and simultaneously incorporate historical development of individuals and intergenerational factors. Furthermore, its reliance on the life course perspective enables readers to obtain a broader understanding of family violence in the country. Written by five Japanese family sociologists who have identified various major sociocultural characteristics that either induce or suppress family violence in Japan, it is a valuable resource not only to scholars and students of the topic, but also to those specializing in sociology, psychology, anthropology and comparative family studies around the globe.
