The idea of one »God« being the all-determining reality seems to have become as redundant as it is problematic. Yet we have not given up searching and the word »God« still continues to polarize, whether in society, theology or philosophy. In view of this seeming paradox, Friederike D. Rass seeks an alternative route that goes off the beaten track and beyond the temptation to resignedly retreat to relativist or fundamentalist positions.
The quest for the one »Truth« in a pluralist society seems to have become as redundant as it is problematic – in much the same way that the idea of one »God« being the all-determining reality has. Yet we have not given up searching and the word »God« still continues to polarize, whether in society, theology or philosophy. In view of this seeming paradox, Friederike D. Rass seeks an alternative route that goes off the beaten track and beyond the temptation to resignedly retreat to relativist or fundamentalist positions. She argues that it is precisely the supposedly futile quest for a single »Truth« as well as the continuous questioning of the meaning of the word »God« that provide an essential guide to responsible action today.
