Vision trinitaire et cosmothéandrique : Dieu-Homme-Cosmos
Collection Œuvres de Raimon Panikkar
464 pages - mai 2013
‘It is man’s consciousness of not being alone, of not being absolutely in control of his own destiny, that opens his mind to divinity. And it is that awareness, vague as it may be, that brings man closer to divinity. Divinity transcends man while surrounding him; it is inseparable from the consciousness man has of his own identity. Yet it always remains imperceptible, hidden, and, for some, inexistent.’ Humanity understands itself, and the cosmos, via three principal visions: one monist, one dualist and one a-dualist. The cosmotheandric vision presented and explored here is based on the last. In a cosmotheandric perspective, reality is not one single and indistinct block that is divine, spiritual, or material; nor is it made up of three blocks or three levels. On the contrary, it is the relation of interdependence between three dimensions: the divine (transcendence), human (conscience) and physical (matter). In this way, Raimon Panikkar leads us to approach reality like a kind of Trinity in which man, as a microcosm and image of All, is invested with a very special dignity in his relation with God and the cosmos. This book of ‘Œuvres’ by Raimon Panikkar assembles five studies originally written from 1973 to 2004, all reread by him and, for the most part, translated into French for the first time.
