By Mark Manolopoulos
What if our global have been thought of a present? Extending postmodern reward thought to ecological and ecotheological issues, Mark Manolopoulos explores how “creation”—the what-is—can be obvious as a present. production, while seen in a extensively egalitarian approach, is the matrix of all fabric things—human, otherwise-than-human, or humanly synthetic. using and critiquing the paintings of Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Marion, Manolopoulos argues that the present is an irresolvable paradox marked by means of the contradictory parts of extra (gratuity, linearity) and alternate (gratitude, return). Philosophical and theological reflections at the present develop into entangled in its paradoxical pressure, yet finally either features has to be revered and mirrored. in terms of the creation-gift, we must always vacillate among responses like letting-be, amusement, software, and go back. Elegantly written and thought-provoking, If construction Is a present either contributes to the continuing debate at the present and offers a clean philosophical and theological attention of the environmental crisis.
“…Manolopoulos’ textual content stimulates reflective idea pertaining to many points of the relational implications of giving in either inter-human and ecological moral phrases. As such, its attention of construction as a present is definitely poised to foster creativity in a reader, making cautious mirrored image on Manolopoulos’ insights, as provided during this e-book, a important activity.” — reports in Religion

“Nel loro centro più profondo, uomini e donne sono una cosa sola, ma il loro esprimersi è molto diverso”“Quando elimini dall’amore l. a. passione e l’attaccamento, quando il tuo amore è puro, innocente e senza forma, quando in amore dai e non chiedi, quando il tuo amore è solo dare, quando il tuo amore è un imperatore e non un mendicante, quando sei felice perché qualcuno ha accettato il tuo amore – non lo negozi e non chiedi niente in cambio – allora liberi l’uccello dell’amore e lo lasci volare nei cieli aperti.
