Multi-Resilience - Development - Sustainability


Book Description

The book, deliberately written in generally understandable language for all interested readers, paints a unique, transdisciplinary overall picture of resilience as a national and international social factor of our time. It shows that in terms of socio-political significance, the concept of resilience is in no way inferior to the older, hitherto dominant concepts of sustainability and development; indeed, it actively complements them, in some cases contradicts them, but also completes them. Resilience as a societal factor involves all sectors, such as politics, the economy, science and civil society, and thus represents an indispensable frame of reference in the overarching recent debate on the "learning society". "Fathi analyzes the still little-tapped topic of "societal resilience" from entirely new perspectives and with a stimulating thematic breadth. A must-read for anyone who wants to grasp this topic holistically." Prof. Dr. Uwe Schneidewind

The Survival of Mankind


Book Description

Although humans are by no means a threatened species on this planet, humans are obviously concerned and fearful that mankind will not survive and that the animal species Homo sapiens will be annihilated forever. This seems to be a contradiction. In this book, the author shows that this apparent contradiction is not one. The author shows that the fear of humans that mankind could be annihilated in whatever way is undoubtedly justified and that this fear is not just the unfounded imagination of a species that is apparently more or less so overwhelmed with its own existence that it constantly fantasises about its own demise. However, if this fear of humans that mankind could be wiped out by whatever events is actually justified, then a question immediately arises, the answer to which is, so to speak, the purpose of this book: What would be the conditions that would have to be fulfilled so that under all possible circumstances and for every conceivable case this annihilation of all mankind could be prevented or avoided and there would therefore be no end of mankind? In accordance with the subtitle of this book, the author will therefore make speculations about the conditions under which the continued existence of the animal species Homo sapiens and thus also of Mankind could be guaranteed under all possible circumstances and for every conceivable case.







New Directions in Biblical Theology


Book Description

New Directions in Biblical Theology contains the papers of an international conference on Biblical Theology which was organized by the Faculty of Theology of Aarhus University on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. The papers delivered at the conference address a number of fundamental issues evolving from the recently revived debate on Biblical Theology. The first group of contributions deals with essential topics such as the biblical concept of revelation, and the interpretation of the Old Testament as presented by the apostle Paul, by the evangelists Matthew, Mark and John, and by the Letter to the Hebrews. Further contributions treat themes such as the 're-use' of a given biblical tradition, theology of creation, apocalyptic, the concept of mercy, the community's role in transmission and interpretation, and the primary aspects of the concept of God.
