Publications: BookCollectionPeer Reviewed


This edited volume pursues the question of christianity's contribution to a new humanism. It tries to introduce a view of the mortality, fragility and vulnerability of life as starting points of their transcendence. Time, language, modern symbolic order and prayer will be analyzed as they enter into a dialogue with the Bible, Hegel, Musil, Hölderlin and Lacan.

With contributions by Kurt Appel, Helmut Jakob Deibl and Isabella Guanzini.
