Theology After Vedanta
Theology After Vedanta (March 1993)
An Experiment in Comparative Theology
Francis X. Clooney, SJ - Author

In two respects this is a truly original book. First, it elaborates the fundamental truth that people and communities live from the word of scripture, not from doctrines to which scriptures tend to be reduced. Second, this book refuses to take a higher view in theories applied to scriptures. Second, this book refuses to take a higher view in the History of Religions by passing superficially attractive judgments on either Christianity or Hinduism. It...(Read More)

Spirituality, Diversion, and Decadence
Spirituality, Diversion, and Decadence (November 1992)
The Contemporary Predicament
Peter H. Van Ness - Author

"This is a more interesting and insightful approach to the topic of spiritual discipline than I have previously encountered.

"The major problem with contemporary religion (especially Western) is its lack of effective spiritual disciplines--witness the fascination with the disciplines of the East. Add to that the fact that as religion in the traditional sense decreases in popularity, spirituality increases." -- Harold Coward, University of Ca...(Read More)
 
 
In the Mirror of Memory
In the Mirror of Memory (October 1992)
Reflections on Mindfulness and Remembrance in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism
Janet Gyatso - Editor

“Gyatso has put together a collection written by some of the indisputably top-ranking people in the field. All the contributors are internationally recognized scholars, and the level of their essays is uniformly very high: scholarly, erudite, but above all pioneering, fresh, original. The collection is thought-provoking and challenging, yet deeply responsible and responsive to the tradition of textual interpretation. It is very interesting, g...(Read More)

A Light Too Bright (August 1992)
The Enlightenment Today: An Assessment of the Values of the European Enlightenment and a Search for New Foundations for Human Civilization
Paulos Mar Gregorios - Author

"The author has a special talent for bringing together vast amounts of material and summarizing in clear and insightful ways. This critique of the European Enlightenment is most significant in itself. While there have been other books on the Enlightenment, the approach taken here is unique and could only have been offered by a non-European."
-- Harold G. Coward, University of Calgary

Questioning the very legitimacy of Western lib...(Read More)
 
 
On Being and What There Is
On Being and What There Is (July 1992)
Classical Vaisesika and the History of Indian Ontology
Wilhelm Halbfass - Author

"It is a comprehensive study of some of the most difficult and poorly understood--yet central--issues of classical Indian philosophy. It covers an amazingly broad range of texts, explaining and analyzing some materials that have never been studied. It offers a synthetic picture of Vaisaesontology and convincingly explicates its 'genius.'
"No one has ever explained the concepts of substance, being, and universal in Vaisaesas comprehensively and ...(Read More)
 
 
Discourse and Practice
Discourse and Practice (May 1992)
Frank E. Reynolds - Editor
David Tracy - Editor

"I believe that Discourse and Practice is a work of considerable significance which opens the way to a vital and progressive view of philosophy of religion reconsidered. It provides a much needed antidote to traditional (and sometimes sterile) treatments of philosophy of religion from purely Western approaches. It shows how 'others' may be seen to have theoretical awareness and interpretive structures of their own, rather than just being the...(Read More)

Texts in Context (November 1991)
Traditional Hermeneutics in South Asia
Jeffrey R. Timm - Editor

The major religious traditions of South Asia are 'religions of the book'. All accept basic arrays of texts of scriptures, often seen as sacred reservoirs of meaning and power. The West has viewed these texts as 'bibles' of their respective traditions, projecting onto them Western values and concerns. This book challenges such misconceptions by revealing the complex character of scripture and its interpretation in South Asian religions.
