Unity in Diversity: A Philosophical and Ethical Study of the Javanese Concept of 'keselarasan'

Couverture
Gregorian Biblical BookShop, 1996 - 236 pages
With this 19th volume of Inculturation the subtitle has changed into Intercultural and Interreligious Studies. It is the aim of these publications, to bring to the attention of pastors, researchers and teachers various situations of interculturality and interreligiosity, and their relevance for the process of inculturation. By this study on the Javanese concept of Keselarasan, Fr. Yumarma has done a frontier-breaking work of research on his own culture and the instruments it offers to live in situations of interculturality and interreligiosity. The Lessons contained in the term Keselarasan reach far beyond Java and Indonesia. The author has, however, also dared to show some negative sides of this very same concept.
