"Radical embodiment" refers to an anthropology and an epistemology fundamentally rooted in our bodies as always in correlation with our natural and social worlds. All human rationality, meaning, and value arise not only instrumentally but also substantively from this embodiment in the world. Radical embodiment reacts against Enlightenment mind-body dualism, as well as its monistic offshoots, including the physicalism that reduces everything to component matter-energy at the expense of subjectivity and meaning. It also rejects certain forms of postmodernism that reinscribe modern dualisms. David H. Nikkel develops the perspective of "radical embodiment" by examining varieties of modern and postmodern theology, and the nature and role of tradition-in terms of linguistic and non-linguistic experience, the religion and science dialogue on the nature of consciousness, and the immanent and transcendent aspects of God.

'This is an interesting book that engages with a number of disciplines to bring together an argument that is radical embodiment and to situate it within the current theological world. It is a loud call for recognising intersubjectivity as a theological given which seems to me to be a message that needs to be repeated many times in these days.'
Lisa Isherwood in The Expository Times, Vol. 124 (1), October 2012

'Almost effortlessly Nikkel weaves together studies from linguistics, zoology, neurobiology, art history, and theological revelation. These seemingly disparate topics work surprisingly well together to show the significance of the body in different ways of being. ... More than anything else, the posing of his final question demonstrates that the goal of the book is to challenge what readers think they know. In this, it is undeniably a success.'
Brooke J. Nelson, Reviews in Religion & Theology, Volume 20, Issue 2, March 2013.

'...[Nikkel] never tries to disguise that the motivation for his thinking it 'trusting our religious demands' and 'trusting our bodily naturalness'. That makes his argument very personable, vey understandable - and sometime very suggestive...'
Christina Aus der Au, Theologische Revue, Number 1, 2013

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
