Voices of feminist liberation : writings in celebration of Rosemary Radford Ruether by EMILY LEAH SILVERMAN( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of writings features two generations of Rosemary Radford Ruethers doctoral students reflecting on her life work from multiple feminist theological perspectives. The book celebrates Ruether in her 75th birthday year as a brilliant pedagogue and as a pioneering and key founder of feminist and eco-feminist theology. Ruethers students autobiographical and critical writings illuminate her genius and groundbreaking work within multi contextual facets that testify to her far-reaching influences around the world. Their anecdotal and personal engagements with her as a mentor and teacher give the reader insights into her prophetic vision of the importance of the interaction of culture and context that play out in the dialogue of liberating subjugated voices and breaking the dominant binary paradigm of oppression. This celebratory book collects the writings of Ruethers doctoral students to draw out the influences of her teachings and works on their personal and academic investigations. It illuminates many aspects of Ruethers wide-ranging work from Liberation, Feminist, Womanist, Mujerista, Queer Theologies, Eco-Feminism, Inter-Religious Dialogue, and Social Justice in the Middle East. These works range from local contexts of resistance to global visions of ecological sustainability and international peace and justice. This volume shows the dynamic potential of Ruthers groundbreaking, prophetic thinking and pedagogy to mobilize critical theologies, social theories and cultural practices that liberate humanity from oppressive forces of colonization and patriarchy in the name of religion."--Books.google

Religion and ecology : developing a planetary ethic by Whitney Bauman( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moving beyond identity politics while continuing to respect diverse entities and concerns, Whitney A. Bauman builds a planetary politics that better responds to the realities of a pluralistic world. Calling attention to the historical, political, and ecological influences shaping our understanding of nature, religion, humanity, and identity, Bauman collapses the boundaries separating male from female, biology from machine, human from more than human, and religion from science, encouraging readers to embrace hybridity and the inherent fluctuations of an open, evolving global community. As

It follows a genealogical method in examining how the concept of creation out of nothing materialises in the world throughout different periods in the history of the Christian West

Science and religion : one planet, many possibilities by Lucas F Johnston( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection offers new perspectives on the study of science and religion, bringing together articles that highlight the differences between epistemological systems and call into question the dominant narrative of modern science. The volume provides historical context for the contemporary discourse around religion and science, detailing the emergence of modern science from earlier movements related to magic and other esoteric arts, the impact of the Reformation on science, and the dependence of Western science on the so-called Golden Age of Islam. In addition, contributors examine the impacts of Western science and colonialism on the ongoing theft of the biological resources of traditional and indigenous communities in the name of science and medicine. The volume's multi-perspectival approach aims to refocus the terms of the conversation around science and religion, taking into consideration multiple rationalities outside of the dominant discourse."--
The Bloomsbury handbook of religion and nature : the elements by Laura Hobgood( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Divided into four parts-Earth, Air, Fire, and Water-this book takes an elemental approach to the study of religion and ecology. It reflects recent theoretical and methodological developments in this field which seek to understand the ways that ideas and matter, minds and bodies exist together within an immanent frame of reference. The Bloomsbury Handbook of Religion and Nature focuses on how these matters materialize in the world around us, thereby addressing key topics in this area of study. The editors provide an extensive introduction to the book, as well as useful introductions to each of its parts. The volume's international contributors are drawn from the USA, South Africa, Netherlands, Norway, Indonesia, and South Korea, and offer a variety of perspectives, voices, cultural settings, and geographical locales. This handbook shows that human concern and engagement with material existence is present in all sectors of the global community, regardless of religious tradition. It challenges the traditional methodological approach of comparative religion, and argues that globalization renders a comparative religious approach to the environment insufficient
After the death of nature : Carolyn Merchant and the future of human-nature relations by Whitney A. Bauman( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carolyn Merchant's foundational 1980 book The Death of Nature: Women, Ecology, and the Scientific Revolution established her as a pioneering researcher of human-nature relations. Her subsequent groundbreaking writing in a dozen books and over one hundred peer-reviewed articles have only fortified her position as one of the most influential scholars of the environment. This book examines and builds upon her decades-long legacy of innovative environmental thought and her critical responses to modern mechanistic and patriarchal conceptions of nature and women as well as her systematic taxonomies of environmental thought and action. Seventeen scholars and activists assess, praise, criticize, and extend Merchant's work to arrive at a better and more complete understanding of the human place in nature today and the potential for healthier and more just relations with nature and among people in the future. Their contributions offer personal observations of Merchant's influence on the teaching, research, and careers of other environmentalists
Unsettling science and religion : contributions and questions from queer studies by Timothy Morton( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book borrows from the intellectual labor of queer theory in order to unsettle-or "queer"-the discourses of "religion" and "science," and, by extension, the "science and religion discourse." Drawing intellectual and social cues from works by influential theorists such as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, and Eve Sedgwick, chapters in this volume converge on at least three common features of queer theory. First, queer theory challenges givens that on occasion still undergird religiously and scientifically informed ways of thinking. Second, it takes embodiment seriously. Third, this engagement inevitably generates new pathways for thinking about how religious and scientific "truths" matter. These three features ultimately lend support to critical investigations into the meanings of "science" and "religion," and the relationships between the two

Religion and sustainability( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explores the ties between humans and their environment across a wide range of perspectives: from Buddhism, Bahai, Hinduism, and Daoism to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, as well as those of indigenous traditions around the world. The volume examines major theories in philosophy and environmental ethics, such as the concepts of deep ecology, theocentrism versus anthropocentrism (i.e., is God or humankind the center of the world), and the occasionally conflicting (but so often harmonious) roles of science and religion in relation to the world’s environment. Other articles outline the various goals of sustainability: ecological integrity, economic health, human dignity, fairness to the future (intragenerational equity), and social justice." --

Navigating post-truth and alternative facts : religion and science as political theology by Lisa Stenmark( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Navigating Post-Truth and Alternative Facts: Religion and Science as Political Theology is an edited volume that explores the critical intersection of "religion-and-science" and our contemporary political and social landscape with a tailored eye towards the epistemological and hermeneutical impact of the "post-truth society." The rise of the post-truth society has specific importance and inherent risk for nearly all academic disciplines and researchers. When personal beliefs regarding climate change trump scientific consensus, research projects are defunded, results are hidden or undermined, and all of us are at a greater vulnerability to extreme weather patterns. When expertise itself becomes suspect, we become a nation lead by fools. When data is overcome by alternative facts and truth in any form is suspect, where is the space for religious and/or scientific scholarship? The central curiosity of this volume is "what is the role of religion and science scholarship in a post-truth society?" This text explores truth, lies, fear, populism, politics, faith, the environment, post modernity, and our shared public life
