9780268004347: Personalism

Emmanuel Mounier and many other young Frenchmen in the early 1930’s rejected the values, the ideas, and the structures of society. They recognized a crisis which endangered the future of Western life and which demanded the most revolutionary solutions. Mounier and his comrades established the journal Espirit to propound their revolutionary programs and the outlook of personalism, which became their philosophical guideline. This volume is Mounier’s final definition of personalism. First published less than a year before his tragic death in 1950, it is a beautifully written, clear yet unsystematic statement of personalism. Mounier addresses himself to the relationship between the temporal and the spiritual. He believes that although man’s goal is beyond the temporal and beyond human history, man must seek this goal within the changing materials of history. Man must bear witness to eternal truths by committing himself in the world’s affairs.

Book Description University of Notre Dame Press June 1979, 1979. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. 'We began reading Mounier by following references. In the contemporary expression of Trinitarian theology, there has been an important resurgence of interest in the Fathers' thinking concerning the personal nature of the Trinity, and the person as the significant ineradicable datum of Christian theology. In reading such works as Being as Communion by John Zizoulas, The Eucharist Makes the Church and Sacrament of Salvation by Paul McPartlan, and Persons in Communion by Alan Torrance, we found innumerable references to the philosophy of personalism, particularly as presented by Emmanuel Mounier (peer of Marcel and Maritain) and John Macmurray. Approaching Mounier's clearest statement of personalism, I originally attempted to highlight or underscore in this book all of his reflections that seemed essential to Christian understanding of the person. Soon only a few sentences remained unmarked on each page. It was no time before I understood why his clear, applicable presentation of his thinking was so essential to contemporary theologians -- both his ideas and examples of the significance of personalistic thinking (as differentiated from individualism or existentialism) seem so fundamental and powerful to Christian thought that they must not go unnoticed. All concerned with a seminal Christian understanding of the person in our century must engage this text. Bookseller Inventory # 20100303169162
