Spirit and Nature in the Christianity-Buddhism-Science Trialogue
Author:
Recent thinking in the interfaith dialogue and in the theology-science dialogue have taken a “pneumatological turn.” The Cosmic Breath explores this pneumatological theology as unfolded in the Christian-Buddhist dialogue alongside critical interaction with the theology-and-science conversation. As an attempt in comparative and constructive Christian philosophical theology, its central thesis is that a pneumatological approach to Buddhist traditions in further dialogue with modern science generates new philosophical resources that invigorate Christian thinking about the natural world and humanity’s place in it. The result is a transformation of the Buddhist-Christian dialogue from insights generated in the theology-and-science interface and a contribution to the religion-and-science dialogue from a comparative theological and philosophical perspective.

Recent thinking in Christian theology of religions has taken a “pneumatological turn” which asks how the doctrine of the Holy Spirit can contribute to the interreligious dialogue and to the emerging discourse of comparative theology. Pneumatology and the Christian-Buddhist Dialogue. Does the Spirit Blow through the Middle Way? tests the viability of this approach as applied to the Christian-Buddhist dialogue. Various Christian and Buddhist traditions are compared and contrasted within a pneumatological framework. Is the Holy Spirit to be found along the Buddha’s middle way? Some Christians say yes, while others demur. The thesis of this volume is that such a pneumatological perspective opens up possibilities for the deepening and transformation of Christian theology in the religiously plural world of the twenty-first century.

Abstract

The results of the trialogue among Christianity, Buddhism, and science suggests that pneumatological categories can be informative both about how Christians understand the presence of God in the world and about how Buddhists comprehend reality as ultimately constituted and experienced. At the same time, science, religion and theology are interested in truth not in the abstract but as lived. This chapter sketches what might be called a Christian theology of the environment after Buddhism. After means not necessarily leaving behind, but being informed by crossing over and returning transformed. It proceeds by briefly summarizing Christian and Buddhist thinking on this topic respectively before attempting an exploratory synthesis. The task is to illuminate the practical and ethical dimensions of Christian, Buddhist and scientific perspectives on the natural world as mediated through the pneumatological categories. The goal is to sketch an environmental ethic that puts feet on the pneumatological imagination at work.

Abstract

This epilogue suggests that there are at least three possible sets of next steps regarding the exercise in comparative theology of nature unfolded in this book. First, some readers might experience a change of mind of some sort, perhaps in more than one direction. Christians might certainly decide that either Buddhist or scientific perspectives provide for greater intellectual and/or existential coherence and be set off on a journey in either or both directions. A second possible response might be along the following lines: that since such an extended trialogical conversation has not resulted in any meaningful answers or theological or philosophical progress. This leads us to the third type of outcome possible from the book, one that the author hopes is engendered in most of his readers: that interdisciplinary and interreligious expertise is not only important and needed but also valuable for our ongoing vocations, whatever that may be.
