Einheit und Frieden in sich erreicht. Die Geschichte des Wüstenarabers (A‛rābī) und seiner Frau, welche in diesem Artikel behandelt wird, legt die Stufen der geistigen „No. 273“ weiterlesen

INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUE: AN EXPLORATION

By Dharam Singh

The entire humankind wishes that peace prevails in the world, but, as a theologian[i] has said, peace can prevail in the world only if there is peace among religions.   This argument implies that for peace to prevail there must be dialogue – greater and meaningful – among different religions and an investigation of their foundations.  Dialogue among different religions of the „No. 268“ weiterlesen

Von: Selahattin Akti

Einleitung

Generell lässt sich sagen, dass die islamische Ideengeschichte auf drei Säulen beruht. Diese sind: Kalām (systematische Theologie), Sufismus und die islamische Philosophie. Auch wenn ihre Referenzen, Terminologien und Schlussfolgerungen voneinander abweichen, diskutieren alle drei Disziplinen ähnliche Themen. Die islamische Philosophie etablierte im Laufe der Zeit ihre eigene Tradition, die sich besonders in den intellektuellen

The Mad Man and the Old God.

An Essay on Friedrich Nietzsche’s Apocalypse of Human Existence (Revised Version)

No. 260 (2020)

By Edmund Weber

The sun was shining at the marketplace when a mad man was looking with a lamp for God. The astonished people scornfully told him God may be sick or he may be travelling. But the mad man answered:[1]

 Where has he gone? He called, I will tell you” We have killed him, – you and me! We all are his murderers! … God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.

Do we still hear nothing of the noise of the grave-diggers who are burying God?
