Description
Summary:The reflections of Andrew P. Porter about basic aspects of monotheism have been published in two volumes. Each volume is like a walk through a system of ideas, realizing and grasping fundamental elements and conditions of monotheism. While the first path leads through philosophical, theological and psychological fields, the second is comparable to a journey through different places, events and activities around monotheistic themes in the history of religions and their dealings within religious and philosophical texts. The two paths cross each other frequently throughout both volumes. Although the perspective is obviously wider, Porter’s reasoning is focussed on the western, occidental traditions and their different roots in and influences from other cultures, religions and patterns of thought.
