The Gift of Death as the Grand Narrative of Humanism: Towards an Inclusive Ethos for Co-realization
Keywords:Humanism, Religion, Ecology, Christianity, Eastern Thought, Poststructuralism, Western Thought
The celebrated western humanist tradition has its source in its early philosophical texts. Derrida in The Gift of Death analyses the history of the emergence of ethical responsibility in the so called Religions of the Book such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam. While the humanist project helped itself through its conquest over the nonhuman sphere, it has served to upset the ecological balance and to jeopardize sustainability. While searching for an inclusive vision for a sustainable ethical perspective, Dōgen’s philosophy comes in handy for the world.
