" De tous les animaux susceptibles d'être des victimes sacrificielles, l'homme est le seul qui puisse faire des sacrifices ". Les essais réunis ici portent sur l. a. tradition et les formes de pensée que nous font connaître les textes sanscrits, notamment les plus anciens d'entre-eux : les Hymnes védiques et les Traités du sacrifice qui leur sont associés.
Cette édition numérique reprend, à l'identique, l'édition originale de 1989.

Les essais réunis dans ce quantity portent sur los angeles tradition et les formes de pensée que nous font connaître les textes sanscrits, notamment les plus anciens d'entre-eux : les Hymnes védiques et les Traités du sacrifice qui leur sont associés. Le titre,
Cuire le monde, traduit l'expression sanscrite lokapakti : l'homme " cuit " le monde et se " cuit " lui-même en exécutant les rites. On choisit en effet, pour aborder l'Inde, de suivre les chemins que tracent les prescriptions et spéculations indiennes sur le rituel. Poètes et doctrinaires védiques nous y invitent : c'est en réfléchissant à ce qui a lieu sur los angeles scène sacrificielle qu'ils élaborent les catégories du continu et du discontinu de l. a. répétition et de los angeles différence, du " vital " et du " reste ", de l'immédiat et du différé, du plein et du vide, de l'implicite et du déployé. Catégories universelles, sans doute, mais qui, dans l'Inde, ont cette spécificité d'avoir été " pensées " à partir du ceremony par excellence, l'acte sacrificiel, conçu comme modèle de l'acte. C'est pour rendre compte du sacrifice que le Veda s'interroge sur les dieux, leur corps, leur langage, et c'est dans le groupement des hommes unis dans un même projet sacrificiel que l'on décèle le prototype du lien politique. Enfin le lexique et les notions propres au rituel sont présents dans cette définition que les auteurs védiques donnent de l'homme : " De tous les animaux susceptibles d'être des victimes sacrificielles, l'homme est le seul qui puisse faire des sacrifices ". Dans cette word est condensée une anthropologie : ce livre tente de l'expliciter.

Download Kultur und Ethik in den Weltreligionen (German Edition) by Albert Schweitzer,Ulrich Körtner,Johann Zürcher PDF

By Albert Schweitzer,Ulrich Körtner,Johann Zürcher

Welche Ethik braucht das 21. Jahrhundert? Und welche Antworten geben die Weltreligionen? Die globalen Herausforderungen der Gegenwart verlangen nach einer Ethik und Kultur der Nachhaltigkeit, die nicht nur die Lebensrechte künftiger Generationen, sondern auch diejenigen der Tiere und den Eigenwert der Natur achtet. Zugleich muss eine zukunftsfähige Ethik dem Pluralismus der Kulturen und Religionen Rechnung tragen. Der vorliegende Band enthält drei nachgelassene Schriften Albert Schweitzers über Kultur und Ethik in den Weltreligionen von überraschender Aktualität. ”Kultur und Ethik”, entstanden 1919-1921, skizziert den Beitrag der Weltreligionen zu einer universalen Ethik. Gleichzeitig bietet dieses überaus präzise, meisterhaft geschriebene und in sich geschlossene Werk nicht nur eine dichte Darstellung der Ethik Jesu, sondern auch der theologischen und ethischen Grundansichten Schweitzers. ”Mensch und Kreatur in den Weltreligionen”, geschrieben 1933, bündelt Schweitzers Gedanken zur Tierethik und vermittelt zentrale Grundeinsichten der Ethik der Ehrfurcht vor dem Leben. Die 1934 gehaltenen ”Hibbert-Lectures”, bislang nur aus Presseauszügen bekannt, beleuchten in einer pointierten Gegenüberstellung das Verhältnis des Christentums zu den Weltreligionen. Die drei Schriften des vorliegenden Bandes gehören in den Umkreis von Schweitzers Kulturphilosophie und bieten eine wichtige Ergänzung zu seiner ”Kulturphilosophie III”.
