Schriften des Instituts für Christliche Sozialwissenschaften. Neue Folge
Series Editor:
"Gesellschaft - Ethik - Religion", die Buchreihe des Instituts für Christliche Sozialwissenschaften der Universität Münster, dokumentiert Forschungsarbeiten und wissenschaftliche Tagungen aus dem Feld der Christlichen Sozialwissenschaften. In der Perspektive der Sozialethik und ihrer Bezugswissenschaften werden ethisch herausfordernde Fragen der modernen Gesellschaft fachlich kompetent und multidisziplinär bearbeitet: Das Spektrum konkreter sozialwissenschaftlicher und sozialphilosophischer Problemstellungen reicht von Nachhaltigkeit im Umgang mit natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen über drängende Gerechtigkeitsherausforderungen bis hin zu Wertekommunikation unter den Bedingungen weltanschaulicher Pluralität. Beiträge zur sozialethischen Grundlagenforschung erörtern Paradigmen ethischer Argumentation, Quellen, Begründungsmuster und Gesprächsfähigkeit religiös gebundener und säkularer Ethik.

BDS Activism among Europe's Muslims
Lives in Solidarity is an intimate and compelling description of BDS activism among Muslims living in two different cultural contexts, England and Bosnia. Unlike public discussions of BDS activism that tend to lack nuance, it explores both why Muslims engage in BDS activism and how they weave it into their daily lives. Not only is this a thoughtful ethnography of a critical but often ignored dimension of BDS activism, it is also an important corrective to scholarship that treats affective, ethical, and passionate attachments as inconsequential to politics.
Since the end of the late twentieth century, religion in all its varied forms has come to play an increasingly visible and dynamic role in the transformation of Chinese societies. This vitality of religious practice challenges the secularization theories that are at the heart of modern social science and it directs renewed attention to the role of religion throughout Chinese history. This series features monographs and edited volumes investigating the full range of religious practices in all Chinese societies, including Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, Taiwan, as well as overseas Chinese communities throughout Southeast Asia and elsewhere. It includes research from all disciplines in the social sciences and humanities that describes, documents, and interprets religious practices, beliefs, and the many forms of religious community in Chinese societies.

Volume Editor:
Aiming to develop a less studied literary genre, this book provides a well-rounded picture of spiritual and physical diseases and their remedies as they were ingrained in the imagination and practices of Middle Eastern Abrahamic cultures, with a special emphasis of Christian communities (Greeks/Byzantines, Syrians, Armenians, Georgians, Ethiopians). The volume traces traditions dealing with the onset of a disease in the body and soul, the search for remedy, the maintenance of healing, and the engagement of these processes with faith—either through their affirmation in the public sphere or remaining within the personal framework, as in monastic traditions. A recurring presence in religious literature and the history of the intellectual world, the confrontation between disease and healing may well still be current for our modern understanding of the paths to seeking and maintaining the health of one’s body and soul, without excluding the factor of faith as a core principle.
Deconstruction, Pacifism, and Displacement
Ontologies of Violence provides a new paradigm for understanding the concept of violence through comparative interpretations of French philosopher Jacques Derrida, philosophical theologians in the Mennonite pacifist tradition, and Grace M. Jantzen’s feminist philosophy of religion. By drawing out and challenging the remarkably similar priorities shared by its three sources, and by challenging the assumption that differences necessarily lead to displacement, Ontologies of Violence provides a critical theory of violence by treating it as a diagnostic concept that implies the violation of value-laden boundaries.
