    EU Integration and the Serbian Orthodox Christianity: Socio-Anthropological Perspectives.Brujic Marija - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):32-47.
    A major goal of the Republic of Serbia's foreign policy since 2000 has been the country's integration into the EU. In this respect, in 2012, Serbia became a candidate for EU membership. However, there has been a growing skepticism among the Serbian people about this objective. This ambivalence can be correlated not only with the recent economic crises in some EU countries but also with what are regarded as profound differences in cultural and religious values between Serbia and the EU.

    Positive Thinking as an Experience of Personal Development.Sandu Frunza - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):19-31.
    Positive thinking is one of the most valuable tools that postmodern man possesses for personal development and transforming community life. Positive thinking is based on the harmonious relation of the individual with himself, with the others, and with the surrounding reality. It comes at the end of a process of conscious change which the individual goes through in gradual steps, and becomes nuanced as thinking and personal practices develop. Our starting point is the role of thinking as laid out by (...)

    The Religiosity of Populism: The Sanctified and Abused Power of the People.Mao Xin - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):62-75.
    Populism, irrespective of its form as a political movement or ideological phenomenon, often has certain semi-religious characteristics. This article explores the religiosity of populism from two perspectives: the sacredness of the people, and the messianic character of the populist leader. Even within quotidian politics, the concept of “the people” within the national borders is generally given a prominent position; but it takes on a transcendental character within the context of populism. Similar to the absence of God in the system of (...)

  7. Bioethics and Religion: Some Implications for Reproductive Medicine.Clara Mironiuc, Nicolae Ovidiu Grad, Horațiu Silaghi, Alina Cristina Silaghi & Ion Aurel Mironiuc - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):90-103.
    This paper addresses the topic of bioethics in reproductive medicine from the perspective of the religious implications for the field. The assumption underlying the approach is that religion remains a factor that influences the field of bioethics even in a secularized postmodern society. The first part of the paper analyses the main bioethical issues which mark obstetrics and gynecology, uttering that the four basic principles of bioethics are available both in obstetrics and gynecology and must be applied in association with (...)

  8. Constructed Realities in the Study of Religion? Considerations on the Margin of Judaism’s Reception in Present-Day China.Pătru Alina & Mihăilescu Clementina Alexandra - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):76-89.
    The aim of this study is twofold. Firstly, it intends to highlight the value of constructivist insights for religious studies by showing that various forms of approach to issues related to religion are mere constructs. In contrast to this viewpoint, the discipline of religious studies had traditionally sought a higher degree of objectivity in the scientific reflection of religious topics, but that has been a fraught path. Secondly, the example it refers to is worthy in itself. The reception of Judaism (...)

  10. Ancestry, Goodness, and the Relationship with Christianity as Ecodomical Aspects of Decolonization in Indigenous African Religions.Corneliu C. Simuț - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):47-61.
    This paper is an attempt to identify common factors which constitute the foundation of decolonization in indigenous African religions. Since such aspects need to be essentially constructive in order to effectively and positively replace Colonial ideas, this particular search for common ground concerning decolonization in indigenous African religions is going to be pursued through the concept of ecodomy, seen as constructive process. When applied to decolonization with this postulated positivity, ecodomy coagulates three distinct aspects of indigenous African religions into a (...)

  11. The Tripartite Structure in Sugyot From Tractate Eruvin of the Babylonian Talmud.Zur Uri - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (47):3-18.
    This article describes the tripartite structure, a formative style used in the redaction of some sugyot in Tractate Eruvin. The attitude to the tripartite structure is portrayed here as reflected by commentators and researchers who mentioned this pattern, whether directly or indirectly. The purpose of the article is to present several select examples of the tripartite structure in some sugyot in Tractate Eruvin. This will have the significant effect of illuminating different literary forms worthy of exploration, such as the tripartite (...)

    Ethical Leadership, Religion and Personal Development in the Context of Global Crisis.Sandu Frunza - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (46):3-16.
    Ethical leadership is the best response in the crisis state of postmodern man. Ethical leadership is a construct that leads to personal transfiguration, organizational effectiveness, improved interpersonal communication, and the achievement of a joint platform for professional action. Its development has also a beneficial effect as it brings ethics back to the core of public action, to the front line of organizational life and personal development. Whether it follows a religious model or a model resulting from laicized religious values, leadership (...)

    Religion, Liturgy and Ethics, at the Intersection Between Theory and Practice. The Revolution of Pope Francis.Nóda Mózes - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (46):17-33.
    The role of religion in the public space is a matter of debate. The public sphere understood as a space oriented to achieving interests of common concern, reaching social and political consensus by means of deliberation has relegated religion to the private sphere. The last decades have attested a revival of the public role of religion, a “de-privatization” of religion. This paper explores the contemporary influence of religious beliefs and liturgical practice on issues of public concern focusing on the statements (...)

  15. Religious Pluralism: A Habermasian Questioning and a Levinasian Addressing.Lars Rhodin & Xin Mao - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (46):49-62.
    The task of this paper is to clarify the notion of pluralism and religious pluralism against the background of disputations on the globalized challenges of religious pluralism, for example the incompatibility between different conceptions of religious pluralism, especially from the lens of a possible conversation on religious pluralism between Jürgen Habermas and Emmanuel Levinas. With a detailed reading into the development of the conceptualization of religious pluralism in each author, addressing the questions such as what is genuine pluralism and on (...)

  16. Creation and Salvation in Edward Schillebeeckx. Well-Being as More About Jesus’ Death and Less About Resurrection.Ramona Simuț - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (46):34-48.
    This paper is not merely an attempt to come to terms with Edward Schillebeeckx’s theology and his philosophical mindset. Such attempts have already been made years back, when his ties with phenomenology, and also with postmodern hermeneutics and culture were pivotal for us in order to better understand his influence on mid-20th century Continental philosophy. This present study partially remains on those premises, but also brings Schillebeeckx’s thought closer to the 21st century, since nowadays concepts like salvation and resurrection tend (...)

    Political Myths of the Populist Discourse.Mihnea S. Stoica - 2017 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 16 (46):63-76.
    Studies point out that populism, a concept still in dire need of clarifications, resembles more of a rhetorical strategy than a fully-fledged ideology. Actually, populism has become a concept so frequently used that its orginial meaning seems to have been lost, leaving it as an empty shell, at least from an ideological point of view. I argue that in spite of this – or rather as a means of compensation – populism uses a very robust mythological apparatus, creating narratives that (...)
