The Deconstruction of Dualism in Theology: With Special Reference to Ecofeminist Theology and New Age Spirituality - Paternoster Biblical & Theological Monographs (Paperback)Gillian McCulloch (author)
Paperback 280 Pages
This book is a thoughtful defence of the importance of retaining a version of dualism in ecofeminist Christian theology. Ecofeminist theologians have often tried to reconstruct theology through a total rejection of dualism. The body-soul dualism and the God-creation dualism are seen by many as the root of many evils committed against women and nature. McCulloch argues that, although some forms of dualism do have such negative consequences, a dualistic theology could avoid them. She further argues that the trend from a God-creation dualism towards pantheism in New Age thinking and ecofeminism is actually inimical to the concerns. McCulloch's study has important implications not only for theology but also for ethics and spirituality. She explores the contemporary critique of Western dualism -- mind/body, God/creation, subject/object, nature/culture -- and maintains that the dual apprehension of divine transcendence and immanence must always be held in balance in theological reflection.
