The Enlightenment And The Authority Of Scripture, Kevin Twain Lowery 2010 Olivet Nazarene University

The Enlightenment And The Authority Of Scripture, Kevin Twain Lowery

Faculty Scholarship – Theology

Provides an historical overview of the concept of the authority of Scripture, emphasizing the impact of developments since the Enlightenment. Recommends an approach to Scripture that: allows scholarship to inform us about context and the complexities of authorship, recognizes that everything is judged by reason, bases belief on truth, and integrates scripture with other sources of knowledge.


Humanizing Personhood, Adam Kadlac 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Humanizing Personhood, Adam Kadlac

Adam Kadlac

This paper explores the debate between personists, who argue that the concept of a person if of central importance for moral thought, and personists, who argue that the concept of a human being is of greater moral significance. On the one hand, it argues that normative naturalism, the most ambitious defense of the humanist position, fails to identify moral standards with standards of human behavior and thereby fails to undermine the moral significance of personhood. At the same time, it contends that a more focused attention on the morally relevant features of human life may indeed play a crucial role ...


A Reply To Ruiping Fan, Stephen C. Angle 2009 Wesleyan University

A Reply To Ruiping Fan, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

I have been offered the chance for a brief reply to Professor FAN’s response to my review, and would like to make just two points. In the penultimate paragraph of his response, Professor FAN raises the question of the efficacy of Confucian moral commitments in contemporary China, and suggests that we can get evidence of this efficacy by comparing China with Eastern Europe. I agree that such a comparison may be very helpful, but suggest that it cannot be undertaken in a superficial way. For one thing, the differences between the two regions are more complicated than ...

Review Of Bol: Neo-Confucianism In History, Stephen C. Angle 2009 Wesleyan University

Review Of Bol: Neo-Confucianism In History, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Peter Bol’s first book, This Culture of Ours (Stanford, 1992), changed the way we understand the crucial intellectual and social changes from the Tang to the Song. That book ended with Cheng Yi and the rise of Daoxue (or Neo-Confucianism). One purpose of his new book is to pick up the story where This Culture of Ours left off, now explaining the intellectual and social factors that led Neo-Confucianism to become a successful movement — a movement that ultimately played a major role in shaping late imperial Chinese history. This is already an ambitious goal, and one the Bol fulfills ...

Die Melancholie, Der Geist Des Kapitalismus Und Die Depression, In "Freie Assoziation", 13, N. 4 (2010), S. 79-99., Marco Solinas 2009 Florence University

Die Melancholie, Der Geist Des Kapitalismus Und Die Depression, In "Freie Assoziation", 13, N. 4 (2010), S. 79-99., Marco Solinas

Marco Solinas

Der Aufsatz zielt darauf, der Prozess der historischen Überlagerung, Substitution und Verbreitung des theoretischen Paradigmas der Depression gegenüber jenem der Melancholie darzustellen. Im ersten Teil wird versucht, einige der einschneidenden Eigenschaften der Thematisierungen der Melancholie in der Frühen Neuzeit anzugeben, auch im Verhältnis zum Geist des Kapitalismus. Nachdem eine Skizze der Entstehung der moderne Kategorie der Depression, geht es darum, den Verlauf nachzuzeichnen, der im 20. Jahrhundert zu ihrer Transformation in ein weitläufiges theoretisches Paradigma geführt hat, das schließlich jenes der Melancholie ersetzt hat. Der zweite Teil stellt den Versuch dar, eine Zeitdiagnose umzureißen: An dieser Stelle ist die psychosoziale ...


Confucianism On The Comeback: Current Trends In Culture, Values, Politics, And Economy, Stephen C. Angle 2009 Wesleyan University

Confucianism On The Comeback: Current Trends In Culture, Values, Politics, And Economy, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

There is ample evidence that Confucianism is undergoing a multi-faceted revival in contemporary China. We see this in government slogans, in a runaway best-seller on the Analects, in educational experiments, and in academic activities. There are many motivations for the renewed interest in Confucianism and many different ways that self- avowed proponents of Confucianism understand their ultimate goals. As we seek to understand and teach about China, we need to keep these complexities in mind as we convey the multiple sides of a rapidly changing society.
