The Many Faces of Panentheism
Atmanspacher Harald Werner
A well-known reason for failing interdisciplinary dialog between the sciences and humanities is the lacking common ground of their ontological and methodological commitments. This is particularly evident for the precarious relationship between science and religion. Courageous attempts toward convergence often wear out in the presentation of viewpoints that are more or less detached from one another. In this symposium we will try to counteract this situation with a focus theme located right at the interface of nature and the divine: panentheism. Panentheism oscillates between the idea that God is nature itself (pantheism) and the idea that God is entirely isolated from nature (theism). Key perspectives, arguments and implications will be discussed by prominent theologians, philosophers, physicists and psychologists. Beyond presenting their own points of view they will relate their topics to one another, explore territory beyond the boundaries of their disciplinary backgrounds, and address practical consequences for real-world issues.
