Book announcement: "Religion, Language and the Human mind" Oxford University Press, New York

October 19, 2018 6

“Religion, Language and the Human Mind.”
Paul Chilton & Monika Kopytowska (editors). 2018. New York: Oxford University Press.

“This volume aims to be yet another step in furthering the understanding of religious minds and behaviours. The contributors come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds that include linguistics, religious studies, literary studies, communication science, cognitive science, neuroscience, and psychiatry. The examples of religious practice range across the major world religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism. This volume is intended to offer a range of analytic and potentially explanatory frameworks: the implications for religious belief in general are left to the reader.” (the editors Paul Chilton and Monika Kopytowska).

Nous vous conseillons vivement de lire cet ouvrage collectif pointu, dont le Prof. Ralph Bisschops (membre de Beth Hillel) a rédigé le chapitre 12 ("The metaphors of Paul of Tarsus"). Il y fait mention, entre autres, de la thèse de fin d'études de Rabbi Marc Neiger.
Vous pouvez vous le procurer ICI, ou le consulter à la bibliothèque de Beth Hillel.
