Divyadaan Journal of Philosophy and Education 24/1 (2013)

The latest issue of Divyadaan: Journal of Philosophy and Education (vol. 24/1 of 2013) has just come in. A nice set of articles, with a 'Jerusalem flavour' this time: Agostino Guccione's "The Mimetic Theory of Rene Girard," and Jean-Marie Amalebondra's "At the School of Nasr Hamid Abu Zayd: The Qu'ran and Contemporary Hermeneutic Theories." Guccione used to teach Hebrew and Italian at STS, and Amalebondra is one of our students from the Missionaries of Africa. Besides, there is a review of Giuseppe Abba's Costituzione epistemica della filosofia morale, by Biju Michael, and another of Relating We Journey: An Interdisciplinary Exploration, ed. J. Kuttianimattathil (the Festschrift for Dominic Veliath) by Edoardo Gnocchini, another one of our students, and Banzelao Teixeira.

The other articles are interesting too: the first part of Michael Shute's contribution on implementing Lonergan's method, and the first part of Dolreich Pereira's piece on the Summa Contra Gentiles, which he suggests is a Summa for the Gentiles, and asks who these gentiles might have been, for whom Aquinas wrote, or about whom he wrote.

Then of course there is yet another part of the Samkhya chapter of De Smet's Guidelines in Indian Philosophy.

And among the other reviews, one by Banzelao Teixeira of the latest 'edition' or reproduction of Thomas Stephens' Arte da lingoa Canarim as updated by Diogo Ribeiro and co, and another by Albert Kumar and myself of a book on Kant's ethics by Shibin Thuniampral, itself based on a thesis done under Saju Chackalackal at Dharmaram. A new fillip to Kantian studies in India, thanks to Prof. Chackalackal.
