An introduction to Anthroposophical Methodology and a complete analysis of Rudolf Steiner's 'Philosophy of Freedom (Spiritual Activity)', Gennady Bondarev's 'Organon' demonstrates that the methodology intrinsic to Anthroposophy is fundamental to and capable of unifying all modern sciences as it describes the monistic sensible-supersensible reality. Through its anthropocentric and ontological character, this methodology's actualization implies an evolutionary change of both the human subject and the process of cognition itself. Rudolf Steiner's fundamental epistemological work is thereby shown to be the foundation for the development of a new kind of 'beholding' thinking - what Goethe began to experience and called "anschauende Urteilskraft." This is volume 2 of 3. The volumes, taken together, contain a completely new translation of 'Die Philosophie der Freiheit' by Graham B. Rickett.

This volume is the first English language presentation of the innovative approaches developed in the aesthetics of religion. The chapters present diverse material and detailed analysis on descriptive, methodological and theoretical concepts that together explore the potential of an aesthetic approach for investigating religion as a sensory and mediated practice. In dialogue with, yet different from, other major movements in the field (material culture, anthropology of the senses, for instance), it is the specific intent of this approach to create a framework for understanding the interplay between sensory, cognitive and socio-cultural aspects of world-construction. The volume demonstrates that aesthetics, as a theory of sensory knowledge, offers an elaborate repertoire of concepts that can help to understand religious traditions. These approaches take into account contemporary developments in scientific theories of perception, neuro-aesthetics and cultural studies, highlighting the socio-cultural and political context informing how humans perceive themselves and the world around them. Developing since the 1990s, the aesthetic approach has responded to debates in the study of religion, in particular striving to overcome biased categories that confined religion either to texts and abstract beliefs, or to an indisputable sui generis mode of experience. This volume documents what has been achieved to date, its significance for the study of religion and for interdisciplinary scholarship.

This volume is a tribute to our esteemed colleague Professor John Martin Hull for his exceptional academic achievements in the field of religious education. Especially worth mentioning are his worldwide continuous efforts in trying to realize interreligious education and interreligious learning in public schools. In his approach there is a strong emphasis on openness, dialogue, and encounter. When we are looking for an adequate vignette to characterize the contribution of this famous religious educator, a good one might be ‘religious education as encounter’. That is why this volume is systematically focusing on this topic. It brings together contributions from leading researchers in the international field of religious education adhering to a great variety of religious or worldview traditions, and it addresses a wide range of perspectives regarding the concept of encounter in religious education.

Must psychoanalysis be hostile to religion? Freud was a staunch critic of religion and grounded his views in psychoanalytic theory. This work details the philosophical bases of Freud's attack on religion and shows how he used multiple arguments drawn from epistemology, pragmatic concerns, and psychology. Although Freud's psychoanalytic theories changed significantly over the course of his work, his criticism of religion remained tied to his early theories of anxiety and wish fulfillment. Chapman shows that Freud's later revision of the anxiety theory provides grounds for a different, less critical view of religious behavior. Such a revised psychoanalytic view of religion overcomes many of Freud's criticisms and is compatible with modern theology. Chapman examines the potential convergence of psychoanalytic theory and the theology of Paul Tillich. This is a reprint version of a 1989 work, with a new preface by the author (2007).

During times of struggle individuals often ask, why? Expecting a response, people turn to God for answers, as they have for eons. Then as the situation unfolds God's presence or lack of it is felt. What is the connection? What is God's role in Man's interactions? Both religious zealots and skeptics use faith to explain social discourse but Man's interactions are based upon a science that was started 13-14 billion years ago. The science has evolved as Man has evolved and explains Man's place in the cosmos. The secret to the meaning of life is found in the most complex instrument ever constructed, the brain. This book attempts to bring science and religion closer, giving credence to the believer and cynic. God created the universe and all things in it, including Man. Man continues to evolve trying to rejoin with God. However, this goal of unification creates strife within the primitive and cognitive being, producing emotions. Man must learn to use his brain to overcome all obstacles, including unification with God. Harmony is synchronization, the act of working together, between men and within the man. Humans will change the world by being good, which is learning to perform constructive interference. We must then teach this simple yet difficult concept to our children while simultaneously inspiring other adults to do the same. Goodness can instantly triumph over evil. Demonstrating to evil it's own sins and the goodness in the one it wants to hurt may be necessary in the interaction however, the foremost and most difficult duty is to reveal the deep family connection between the two. Harmony explains what exploded in the Big Bang, what gave rise to gravity, the development of evolution and the birth of Man. It explains when the fetus acquires the soul and thus when life starts. The brain and mind constantly wrestle for harmonious existence the result of which is crime, terrorism and power. These can be explained and the result is not just knowledge but unification. Mans life is complex; it is not only based upon beliefs but upon facts. Not only does this book make an effort to justify the above it also attempts to give light to time-travel, give reasons for cancer and clarity to thought. This treatise lays a foundation for education and social harmony through the relationship that is the unique human nervous system.
