Download Verkörperung als Paradigma theologischer Anthropologie by Gregor Etzelmüller,Annette Weissenrieder PDF

By Gregor Etzelmüller,Annette Weissenrieder

< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Menschliches Bewusstein findet sich immer schon als verkörpertes vor. Diese Einsicht steht im Zentrum des kognitionswissenschaftlichen Paradigmas der embodied cognition: Der Geist ist „innig an einen Körper gebunden und innig in seine Welt eingebettet“ (John Haugeland). Der Geist ist kein in einem vermeintlichen Innenraum verborgenes und von der Welt weitgehend gelöstes neuronales Netzwerk, sondern als eine dynamische Weise des leiblichen In-der-Welt-Seins zu verstehen.
Mit der Philosophie der Verkörperung gewinnt die Theologie einen Gesprächspartner, der ihr hilft, ihre eigene Körpervergessenheit zu überwinden und Anschluss an die biblischen Anthropologien zu gewinnen. Denn diese verstehen die menschliche Existenz grundsätzlich als leiblich verfasst. Aktuelle Forschungen an der Schnittstelle von Neurobiologie und Philosophie einerseits und Exegese und Systematik andererseits lassen sich so in einen spannenden Diskurs bringen, an dessen Ende eine neue interdisziplinäre Anthropologie stehen könnte. Der vorliegende Band eröffnet diesen Diskurs mit Beiträgen aus Philosophie, Exegese und Systematischer Theologie.

By George Pattison

Negotiating principles of divine timelessness and sempiternity (everlastingness) in addition to the makes an attempt of a few philosophers to enhance the assumption of a temporal God, Professor George Pattison surveys more than a few positions from analytic
philosophy and from the continental culture from Spinoza via Hegel to the current. highbrow and cultural forces have tended to split time and eternity, and either philosophical and theological examples of this tendency are tested. however, ranging from the adventure of lifestyles in time, some
modern thinkers have built a brand new method of the everlasting as what grounds or offers time. This leads via principles of novelty, utopia, desire, promise, and get in touch with to the projection of an inventive and transformative memory-remembering the future-that affirms human unity and mutual accountability. no matter if this can't be made stable by way of wisdom, it bargains a foundation for wish, prayer, and dedication and those ideas are explored via a variety of Christian, Jewish, Greek, and secular
thinkers. This improvement re-envisages the assumption of redemption, clear of the Augustinian view that point is what we have to be rescued from and in the direction of the concept time itself may possibly shop us from all that's harmful and tyrannical in time's rule over human life.
