 Invitation to an RVP Project on

Re-Learning to Be Human for Global Times:

Challenges and Opportunities

 

A research team formed by a set of Slovakian scholars from many Slovak Universities will work on the issue of “Sacred Values: Incarnation and Excarnation” under the general theme “Re-Learning to be Human for Global Times: Challenges and Opportunities”.

 

The research team led by Michal Valčo will explore and investigate how the ontological reality of the incarnation of the eternal Logos in the person in relation to the engagement of the materiality of human culture and the physicality of human embodiment; what are the implications of the current paradigm shift towards a "Culture of Excarnation" for human relationality; and how traditional understanding of the divine with the emphasis on renewing the work of the Spirit might become an integrative vision (and tool) for living in a creative tension with the two complementary foci - incarnation and excarnation.

 

The research team will consist of theologians, philosophers, sociologists, religious scholars, literature scholars, etc. and will explore the topic relative to the specific Slovak context.  See  Time Table.
