Beschreibung

 

What is an emotion? And what is a religious emotion – if there is such athing? Moreover, do Judaism, Christianity and Islam make any attempt to answer these questions, and if so, do their respective accounts show considerable dis-/similarities? What meaning, role and function/s do their proponents assign to religious emotions – in particular, when it comes to tackling the nature, the rationality and / or the moral status of their own as opposed to any other religion or worldview? And is their respective viewpoint feasible?
These and related questions will bediscussed in three consecutive international research-workshops, to be held at Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften Bad Homburg between 2022 and 2024. The first one (May 16-18, 2022) will address the conceptual issue, both on a principal and a more exemplary level; the subsequent ones will be devoted to the rationality (2023) and the moral issue (2024).
