Political Theologies

Political Theologies

Author: Hent de Vries Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/11/2006

What has happened to religion in its present manifestations? In recent years, Enlightenment secularization, as it appeared in the global spread of political structures that relegate the sacred to a private sphere, seems suddenly to have foundered. Unexpectedly, it has discovered its own parochialism-has discovered, indeed, that secularization may never have taken place at all. With the return of the religious, in all aspects of contemporary social, political, and religious life, the question of political theology-of the relation between political and religious domains-takes on new meaning and new urgency. In this groundbreaking book, distinguished scholars from many disciplines-philosophy, political theory, anthropology, classics, and religious studies-seek to take the full measure of this question in today's world. This book begins with the place of the gods in the Greek polis, then moves through Augustine's two cities and early modern religious debates, to classic statements about political theology by such thinkers as Walter Benjamin and Carl Schmitt. Essays also consider the centrality of tolerance to liberal democracy, the recent French controversy over wearing the Muslim headscarf, and Bush's God talk. The volume includes a historic discussion between Jurgen Habermas and Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, concerning the prepolitical moral foundations of a republic, and it concludes with explorations of new, more open ways of conceptualizing society.

Toward a Theory of Human Rights

Toward a Theory of Human Rights

Author: Michael J. Perry Format: Hardback Release Date: 13/11/2006

Neither the morality of human rights nor its relation to the law of human rights is well understood. In this book, Michael Perry addresses three large issues. There is undeniably a religious ground - indeed, more than one religious ground - for the morality of human rights. But is there a secular ground for the morality of human rights? What is the relation between the morality of human rights and the law of human rights? Perry here addresses the controversial issues of capital punishment, abortion, and same-sex unions. What is the proper role of courts, in a liberal democracy, in protecting - and therefore in interpreting - constitutionally entrenched human rights? In considering this question, special attention is paid to the Supreme Court and how it should rule on issues such as capital punishment and abortion. Toward a Theory of Human Rights makes a significant contribution both to human rights studies and to constitutional theory.

Nepal

Nepal

Author: Susan Chapman Melanson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/11/2006

Nine of us traveled to Nepal in April 2006 with Dr. Larry Peters to observe various shamanic healing techniques and receive shamanic initiation at the time of the April full moon with Aama Bombo, one of the International Counsel of Indigenous Grandmothers. While we were there anti-monarchy demonstrations broke out and the King of Nepal tried to use curfews to subdue the unrest in Kathmandu. A nationwide strike accompanied the demonstrations and Maoist insurgents took advantage of the turmoil. The US Embassy sent its non-essential personnel out of Nepal, and a serious fuel and food shortage developed. This diary-style record of twenty-four days in April 2006 allows the reader to accompany us as we experienced shamanic training, toured Kathmandu and Pokhara, as well as witnessing history in the making.
