Why is it important to study World Religions?
Join Dr Peter Admirand and Dr Joseph Rivera who lecture at DCU, for an informal and entertaining discussion on the importance of religion in a world context.
This talk will be of interest to anyone who would like to explore the political, cultural, and historical implications of the world's religions and interfaith dialogue.
Dr Peter Admirand recently published a book called Seeking Common Ground: A Theist/Atheist Dialogue which is a dialogue between an atheist philosopher and a Catholic theologian. It is about religion and nonreligion, as well as about dialogue itself. The book provides a framework for dialogue grounded in seven key values: Harmony, Courage, Humility, Curiosity, Honesty, Compassion, and Honour.
Dr Joseph Rivera recently published a book called Phenomenology and the Horizon of Experience which looks at themes including Affection and the Horizon of Experience, The Spirit of Empathy, Lived Experience and Metaphysics in Theology. Joseph Rivera is the author of The Contemplative Self after Michel Henry (2015) and Political Theology and Pluralism: Renewing Public Dialogue (2018).
