HUMAN EXISTENCE, TRANSCENDENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
HUMAN EXISTENCE, TRANSCENDENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
Description
About the Book :

History of philosophical thinking evinces two different approaches while one excludes the other concentrates on man. The exploration of the meaning of man needs to take into account the made of emergence of man.

The author in this work has made an attempt at elucidating the tow structures of human existence, subjectivity and relatedness, in the light of basic structure, i.e., finitude. In this elucidation, the author has tried to focus on (1) the uniqueness of man and (2) the directedness e.g. the transcendence as expressed in the dialectical movement to the infinite or God. Transcendence in the opinion of author does not mean the transcendent, and the former which is co-related to discontent contributes to the human fulfillment.

The varied Naturalistic and reductionistic accounts of man which are characterized by the common denial of the surplus in man and consequentially human autonomy and dignity have been examined and found untenable.
