15 - 17.05.2023 - Internationaler Workshop "The Rationality of Religious Emotions in Judaism, Christianity and Islam"
am Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften Bad Homburg
What is an emotion? And what is a religious emotion – if there is such a thing? Moreover, do Judaism, Christianity and Islam make any attempt to answer these questions, and if so, do their respective answers show considerable dis-/similarities? What meaning and function/s do their proponents assign to religious emotions – in particular, when it comes to defend their own as opposed to any other worldview? And does their respective viewpoint seem feasible?
These and related issues are being discussed in three consecutive international research-workshops, to be held at Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften Bad Homburg. Whereas the first (May 2022) addressed the conceptual issue, the current one (May 15-17, 2023) is devoted to the theme of rationality.
The workshop is open to the public via ZOOM; those who want to attend are kindly requested to consult email@example.com for an access-link.
