Becoming-religion: Alfred North Whitehead And A Contemporary Philosophical Reflection
|Author||Kenneth C. Masong|
What is the nature and the place of religion in an ever changing human condition, and in an ever changing world? As Kenneth Masong shows, such a reflection requires a broader perspective: the perspective of metaphysics, and actually the perspective of a metaphysics of becoming. Becoming-religion in a becoming universe. Indeed, religion is not an exception, but a phenomenon among others, although a peculiar one. But what applies to the rest of the universe, also applies to religion. And vice versa. Now, one central law for all that exists, is that it is subject to change.
The book is written with the distance, requisite for philosophical reflection, but with a warm heart for the topic, coming from a deep religious life. Again and again the book testifies to the authors conviction of the intrinsic value of the event of the religious now and in the future for what is called ethnopoiesis: the constitution of a unity of wills, by the persuasive power of the divine vision, on humanitys journey towards civilization.
