From Biology To Consciousness To Morality, Ursula Goodenough, Terrence W. Deacon Dec 2003

From Biology To Consciousness To Morality, Ursula Goodenough, Terrence W. Deacon

Biology Faculty Publications & Presentations

Social animals are provisioned with prosocial orientations that operate to transcend self-interest. Morality, as used here, describes human versions of such orientations. We explore the evolutionary antecedents of morality in the context of emergentism, giving considerable attention to the biological traits that undergird awareness and our emergent human forms of mind. We suggest that our moral frames of mind emerge from our primate prosocial capacities, transfigured and valenced by our symbolic languages, cultures, and religions.

Portions of this article were given by Deacon in a paper at the forty-ninth annual conference of IRAS, “Is Nature Enough? The Thirst for Transcendence ...

Religion In Estonia, Research In English, Janis Cakars Dec 2003

Religion In Estonia, Research In English, Janis Cakars

Occasional Papers on Religion in Eastern Europe

Estonian is one such understudied language, but Estonia is of no smaller importance to Eastern Europe than any other country. To understand the whole, all the parts must be considered. Therefore, scholars without a command of Estonian by necessity must turn to work published in other languages, most commonly English. This article is meant to serve as an aid to those interested in religion in Eastern Europe without a command of Estonian. It provides a bibliographical and historiographical review of the literature within an outline of religious development in a less commonly studied country. The religious history of Estonia, although ...

Qohelet's Twists And Turns, Michael Carasik Dec 2003

Qohelet's Twists And Turns, Michael Carasik

Departmental Papers (Jewish Studies)

When Elias Bickerman wrote a little volume called Four Strange Books of the Bible, Ecclesiastes was an easy choice for inclusion. As he remarks, "Ecclesiastes has no known antecedents or spiritual posterity in Jewish thought."¹ This is an exaggeration,² but even Qohelet's successors, the Jewish sages of the rabbinic period, found Ecclesiastes questionably biblical. Thus in Leviticus Rabbah 28:1, R. Benjamin B. Levi remarks, "They sought to suppress Ecclesiastes, for they found in it matters that tend toward the heretical."³ The purpose of this article is to highlight what I think is a particularly significant ...

Sikhism: The Religion Of The Gurus, Megan Tiernan Dec 2003

Sikhism: The Religion Of The Gurus, Megan Tiernan

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"The understanding of the scriptures within a religion is often imperative to the understanding of that religion as a whole. The content of the scriptures, as well as their origin and the message that they represent, are all very important aspects of learning about a religion. The religion of Sikhism is no exception to this idea. The understanding of this Indian religion derives from the comprehension of the complex sequence of development and current usage of its scriptures, commonly known as the Adi Granth."


Humanism And Religion: How To Use One To Understand The Other, Manar Darwish Dec 2003

Humanism And Religion: How To Use One To Understand The Other, Manar Darwish

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Humanism is a concept that was more realized than discovered during the Renaissance era (cultural awakening) in Europe during the fourteenth century. Since then, it has developed in the way we look at, not only the arts and architecture, but also the way we view religion. It helps incorporate ideas and ethics of human action to how we focus on the belief, values, and morals we derive from religion. If anything, humanism has helped the spiritual form of religion to grow. However, it is not in any way ...

Orthodoxy Vs. Compassion, Jayme C. Wintish Dec 2003

Orthodoxy Vs. Compassion, Jayme C. Wintish

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Antonia Bird’s 1995 film “Priest” illuminates the significance of the humanity of Jesus, as does The Gospel of Luke. The controversial issues of homosexuality, the seal of confession, and the oath of celibacy are examined from a human perspective throughout “Priest.” This film makes it apparent that when we apply the humanity of Jesus to these issues, there is a revelation that the Catholic Church acts in opposition to the Jesus represented in Luke. The Gospel of Luke depicts Jesus as a man with compassion for all ...


A Look At The Life And Teachings Of St. Augestine, Jodi Rowland Dec 2003

A Look At The Life And Teachings Of St. Augestine, Jodi Rowland

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"After deciding to research St. Augustine, a long process of digging through the multiple books in the library and the vast amount of articles on the Internet was needed. Sifting through the voluminous load of information was a great task. However, this task supported the reason I initially chose Augustine: to learn about the man who converted, the convert who became a bishop, the bishop who became a saint, and the saint who became how we know Augustine today—as a great theologian and devoted Christian. Within his ...


Organizational, Professional And Personal Roles In An Era Of Change: The Case Of The Catholic Clergy, Georja Jane Power Dec 2003

Organizational, Professional And Personal Roles In An Era Of Change: The Case Of The Catholic Clergy, Georja Jane Power

Theses

The effects of transformations in the cultural context on the structures of the Catholic organization and consequently on the identity and role of priests is explored in this research. The way these transformations affect clergy relationships with the church, diocesan authorities and parishioners, and ultimately the psychological wellbeing of priests, are investigated in the light of recent research and literature. Quantitative and qualitative data from the Catholic Church Life Surveys (CCLS) of 1996 and 2001 is analyzed, together with qualitative data generated through semi-structured interviews. The theoretical underpinning for the interpretation of changing clerical identity and roles and the relationship ...


Religion, Science, And Evolution: Paul Tillich's Fourth Way, Richard Grigg Dec 2003

Religion, Science, And Evolution: Paul Tillich's Fourth Way, Richard Grigg

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies Faculty Publications

In his book God After Darwin John Haught provides a useful categorization of theological approaches to evolution: some theologians actively oppose Darwinian evolution, another group maintains that science and religion have nothing to say to one another, and a third seeks to engage evolution. Haught wishes to pursue the third way. But many theological attempts to talk about divine action in the world, including divine involvement in the process of evolution, run afoul of the scientific principle of the conservation of matter-energy. Haught's reliance on the now-familiar notion that information can have causal efficacy does not in fact escape ...

Use Of Assyriology In Chronological Apologetics In David's Secret Demons, Steven W. Holloway Nov 2003

Use Of Assyriology In Chronological Apologetics In David's Secret Demons, Steven W. Holloway

Steven W Holloway

The Tiglath-Pileser principle is Halpern's cross-cultural moniker for deliberate lying or distortion in royal inscriptions that, nevertheless, conceals a kernel of historical truth, upon which he elaborates a theory of biblical composition. While acknowledging his many important contributions to ancient Near Eastern studies, I must call into question his uses of Assyriological sources in David's Secret Demons and earlier invocations of his thesis to illustrate the Books of Samuel and Kings with an eye to establishing an early ...
