• Que perguntas as ecologistas feministas fazem às igrejas cristãs? [What questions feminist environmentalists do the Christian churches?]

      Gebara, Ivone (SEBILA, 2007)
      "As perguntas que nós feministas preocupadas com as questões ecológicas dirigimos às nossas igrejas e às nossas teologias tem uma ligação, tem a ver com nossa vida em nossa oikia, isto é em nossa casa comum, a terra como lugar que nos contem e nos permite viver. É desde este lugar geográfico vital que nos damos conta dos atentados mortais à Terra, da enfermidade que lhe impusemos por causa da ganância de nossos projetos culturais e econômicos. É desde a nossa oikia comum que nos damos conta que tudo está contaminado por esta enfermidade que se manifesta na morte de nossos rios, na destruição de nossas florestas, na má qualidade de nosso ar, nas químicas introduzidas nos alimentos e assim por diante."
    • QUESTIONING ECO-THEOLOGICAL PANENTHEISMS: THE PROMISE OF KATHRYN TANNER’S THEOLOGY OF GOD’S RADICAL TRANSCENDENCE FOR ECOLOGICAL THEOLOGY

      Hilda P. Koster (Stellenbosch University, 2013-06-01)
      <p>Christian eco-theologians have generally preferred a form of panentheism that plays up divine immanence at the expense of divine transcendence. Yet while their respec-tive theological models have contributed to a more earthly theology, eco-theological panentheists tend to identify God with aspects of creation that are presumably ‘more like’ God. The latter is problematic in light of their own claim that God is radically present in and to all that is. Drawing on the theology of Kathryn Tanner, this article argues in favour of a different route for maximizing God’s immanence, namely by strengthening rather than weakening divine transcendence.</p><p> </p><p>doi: 10.7833/111-1-21</p>
    • QUESTIONS ABOUT BUSINESS MORALITY IN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS OF TODAY

      Grmič, Vekoslav (Croatian Sociological Society, Institute of Sociology at Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb, 1992-07-15)
      The world conference UNCED in Rio de Janeiro this summer has shown the close connection of present-day environmental problems with the countries' economies, as the firms causing the greatest incidents of pollution and environmental destruction showed to be the least ready to apply, in the economy, the measures which would bring the solution to the most difficult environmental problems. It appears important to consider the problem of the form of the business morality as required by the present-day environmental problems. The economy should be subordinated to man if the basic dimension of his essence is taken into account. It should then be subordinated to the environmental requirements as there is no real anthropocentrism without cosmocentrism. The situation requires new, holistic views on the world as well as a new life style. It is on the new - ecologic and cosmic - spirit to be forming nowadays man's ideas and actions - in the economy field as well.
    • ¿Qué ética para la ecología?

      Torralba, Francesc (2016-01-08)
    • ¿Qué haría si no tuviera miedo...? [What if I were not afraid ...?]

      Steinfeld, Guillermo (Instituto Universitario ISEDET, 2006)
      "La hipótesis general de este artículo es que mientras encontramos en todas aquellas áreas una tensión entre la verdad consumada y la búsqueda de esa verdad, el bien mayor no se encuentra en los extremos (la salud, el equilibrio, o la ortodoxia) sino en la misma dinámica de búsqueda que inevitablemente debe ocurrir entre esos extremos. Esa búsqueda se encuentra principalmente afectada por aspectos subjetivos y ambientales que determinan seriamente las conclusiones teológicas."
    • ¿Qué hay de malo en la biotecnología? La ecología profunda y el reencantamiento de la naturaleza

      Jorge Sierra Merchán (Fundación Universidad Autónoma de Colombia, 2011-12-01)
      Para algunos teóricos que se ocupan de los asuntos ético-medioambientales, como Singer y Taylor, la propuesta de “reencantamiento de la naturaleza” no parece ser una condición sine qua non para el desarrollo de un principio ético que sirva de fundamento a una ética del medioambiente. En otras palabras, es posible defender una ética del respeto a la naturaleza sin necesidad de sacralizar el mundo natural. El objetivo del presente artículo es examinar, entonces, la validez de la tesis de la ecología profunda que sostiene precisamente lo contrario. Según Capra, uno de sus más destacados defensores, la nueva ecología se debe convertir en una forma de religión que siga los pasos de las grandes tradiciones espirituales del mundo. Mostraré que, lejos de resolver la cuestión del respeto a la vida, la propuesta de la ecología profunda crea más problemas de los que resuelve, al no permitir una defensa coherente de los valores medioambientales que ella dice defender, pues no es posible afirmar que los ecosistemas tengan derechos sobre la base de que la vida, en general, es un proceso mental o espiritual. Insistir en el carácter sacro de la vida tendría como consecuencia indeseada para la ecología profunda, una defensa dogmática de su propuesta ética que impediría la revisión histórica de ciertos valores medioambientales a la luz del desarrollo técnico-científico, y la recaída en una ética heterónoma, de corte religioso, que defiende ciertos valores de manera absoluta sin tener en cuenta la autonomía y los intereses de las personas.
    • ¿Qué podemos aprender del sentimiento religioso para enriquecer el campo sociopolítico? Un breve recordatorio acerca del valor sociopolítico de la religión

      Mansilla, Hugo Celso Felipe (DIALNET OAI Articles, 2014)
      In all societies the religious systems have tried to clear fundamental questions for the social-political order, like the origin, the last goal, the sense of existence, and the identity of human beings. This text aims to remember some important aspects about this theme which are still acute, like the relevance of religious phenomena relative to environmental protection (as they appear in the Biblical Genesis), the necessity of love and solidarity in social relations (according to the theory of G. W. F. Hegel), and in the foundation of a comprehensive and lasting idea of justice (according to the theory of Jürgen Habermas). The core of the great religions is bound to the ideal of reconciliation of the human beings with themselves and with nature.

    • ¿Qué significa ser y sentirse Tierra? [what does mean be and feel earth ]

      Boff, Leonardo (Servicios koinonia, 2000)
      "La Tierra se ha transformado actualmente en el grande y oscuro objeto del amor humano. Nos damos cuenta de que podemos ser destruidos. No por algún meteoro rasante ni por algún cataclismo natural de proporciones fantásticas, sino por causa de una irresponsable actividad humana. Se han construido dos máquinas de muerte, que pueden destruir la biosfera: el peligro nuclear y la sistemática agresión ecológica al sistema Tierra. En razón de esta doble alarma, despertamos de un ancestral sopor. Somos responsables de la vida o de la muerte de nuestro planeta vivo. De nosotros depende el futuro común, nuestro y de nuestra querida casa común, la Tierra. Como medio de salvación de la Tierra invocamos hoy la ecología. No en el sentido palmario y técnico de gestionamiento de los recursos naturales, sino como una visión del mundo alternativa, como un nuevo paradigma de relación respetuosa y sinergética para con la Tierra y para con todo lo que ella contiene."
    • ¿Quién es quién? ¿Quién es qué? ¿Quién es ella? [Who's who? Who is what? Who is she?]

      Rufín Pardo, Daylíns (Grupo de estudios multidisciplinarios sobre religión e incidencia pública (gemrip), 2014)
      "La naturaleza sufre todo género de violencias al estar sujeta identitariamente a los prejuicios con que se han construido culturalmente las figuras de las mujeres y de lo femenino. El devenir socio-histórico muestra otras variables que han jugado un papel en esta legitimación categorial reproductora de la lógica patriarcal: la teología se cuenta entre ellas. Nuestra época posmoderna de pensamiento propicia relacionar críticamente estos presupuestos desde lugares epistemológicos complejos, transdisciplinarmente y con herramientas teóricometodológicas deconstructivistas. Esto posibilita la emergencia de nuevas miradas que configuran un mundo genéricamente más equitativo. El Ecomarxismo y la Ecoteología hacen parte de estos lugares epistemológicos posibles."
    • Quran - Muhammad Asad Translation

      http://islamic-replies.ucoz.com/
      http://islamic-replies.ucoz.com/ http://islamicreplies.50webs.com http://islamicreplies.hostoi.com http://islamicreplies.ucoz.com/ http://islamicreplies.ucoz.net/ Muhammad Asad's translation of the Glorious Quran, in where he gives his footnotes and commentary as well as his translation. Qurâan its naturally in the Arabic language, which is why ANY translation of the Qur'an will most definitely contain mistranslations. Any translation of the Qur'an no longer retains that 'official' and perfect status, however it can be tremendously helpful to beginning students wanting to learn more about the Qurâan, and Islam. It is immensely important that one should read the Qurâanic commentaries and historical context, along with the translations of the Qurâan, to understand the situations and time of when certain verses where revealed.

    • Race Relations: A dialogue between Science and Theology on the Basis of Race

      Latham, Shanice (Digital Commons @ ACU, 2017-05-17)
      When the topic of race is breached the emotions expressed can range from extreme feelings of guilt to extreme feelings of anger. Why is a word that is, today, commonly associated with a person’s skin color and other physical characteristics responsible for such strong emotional reactions? Much of the violence, poverty, injustice, and hurt in the world has been and is caused by racial division. With the continued use of such an arbitrary system as race these issues will continue to persist and deteriorate. This paper will explore the origin, as well as scientific and theological perspectives of race and race relations as it impacts prejudice against groups not one's own. I will conclude that race relations is profoundly impacted by the evolution of the theological and scientific ideas of race.
    • Radical religion and the habitus of the dispossessed: Does Islamic militancy have an urban ecology?

      Bayat, A (BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2007)
      There is a commonplace but powerful argument that links the religious resurgence in the Muslim world to the urban ecology of overcrowded slums in the large cities. Poverty and precarious life, together with anomie and lawlessness, condition the dispossessed to embrace ideologies and movements that offer communities of salvation and support while preaching radical politics. This article questions the premises of such arguments in an attempt to nuance the relationship between the urban dispossessed and radical Islam. By examining the politics of slums and militant Islamism in the Middle East, notably Egypt and Iran, I suggest that key to the habitus of the dispossessed is not anomie or extremism but 'informal life'- one that is characterized by flexibility, pragmatism, negotiation, as well as constant struggle for survival and self-development. The relationship between the urban dispossessed and radical Islamists tends to be both contingent and instrumental.
    • Radical Social Ecology as Deep Pragmatism: A Call to the Abolition of Systemic Dissonance and the Minimization of Entropic Chaos

      Brender, Arielle (DigitalResearch@Fordham, 2018-05-19)
      This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim to run counter to the natural flow of the Cosmos. In Chapter 1, I discuss the pragmatism of systemic biomimicry and the tenets of ecology which must be assumed for the construction of effective human systems. In Chapter 2, the notion of construct is explored through the lense of metaphysical grounding. In Chapter 3, I explicate the dominant human systems [of oppression] which attempt to govern our human world and their discongruence with Natural Systems. In Chapter 4, tools for dismantling and reconstructing our sloppily-designed systems from a pluralistic base are explored. Chapter 5 focuses on the role of the individual in regard to the conscious evolution of the whole. Chapter 6 concludes with mention of the absurdity in the mainstream notion of ‘sustainability,’ and the pragmatism of hope. The radical pragmatism pursued in this work aims at a qualitative shift in society moreso than a quantitative one.

    • Rancang Bangun Aplikasi Jelajah Virtual Reality Candi Cetho Karanganyar

      Aryanto, Dedy; , Nurgiyatna, S.T., M.Sc., Ph.D (2018)
      Cetho Karanganyar temple is one of hindu temple built in majapahit era which is still actively
 used as worship until now. Cetho Temple is also used as tourism object for the public, because
 it has a high historical value and has a pretty good view. Information about Cetho Temple is
 still delivered in the form of 2D (two dimension), which is in the form of photo / picture and
 also writing to tourists / visitors / audiences. The way it is now considered less interactive or
 less interesting. From the problem researchers designed a desktop application about cetho
 karanganyar temple. The application will contain the existing buildings in cetho temple in three
 dimensions and also using virtual reality technology. The result of this research is the virtual
 roaming application of cetho karanganyar temple as information media which contains the
 buildings which are in cetho karanganyar temple in three dimension with virtual reality vision
 method. From the application test to the 30 respondents, the data obtained as follows, the
 statement (P1) of the attractive application interface display got 60.8% percentage, the
 statement (P2) 3D modeling application display draws / draws the original gets 70.4%
 percentage, statement (P3) the guidance of using the application is easy to understand and
 obviously gets the percentage of 63.2%, the statement (P4) the information delivery in this
 application is easily understood got the percentage of 73.6%, the statement (P5) feature and the
 function of the animation went well got 80.8% percentage, statement (P6) This application runs
 smoothly on the computer / laptop used gets 77.6% percentage.
