Abstract

Here is a critical appreciation of Black Natural Law (2016) by Vincent Lloyd and “black bioethics” (2020) by Keisha Ray and others. Both are measured by references to A Voice from the South (1892) by Anna Julia Cooper, A Singing Something: Womanist Reflections on Anna Julia Cooper (1994) and Sisters of Dust, Sisters of Spirit: Womanist Wordings on God and Creations (1998) by Karen Baker-Fletcher. These “womanist wordings” suggest “black natural law” and “black bioethics” should be supplemented by art, and by recourse to nature (all of nature) and environmental bioethics, including struggles for environmental justice and earth healing.

Philosophy of Religion Meets Philosophy of Mind
Panpsychism has become a highly attractive position in the philosophy of mind. On panpsychism, both the physical and the mental are inseparable and fundamental features of reality. Panentheism has also become immensely popular in the philo-sophy of religion. Panentheism strives for a higher reconciliation of an atheistic pantheism, on which the universe itself is causa sui, and the ontological dualism of necessarily existing, eternal creator and contingent, fi nite creation. Historically and systematically, panpsychism and panentheism often went together as essential parts of an all-embracing metaphysical theory of Being.
The present collection of essays analyses the relation between panpsychism and panentheism and provides critical reflections on the significance of panpsychistic and panentheistic thinking for recent debates in philosophy and theology.
