Human Ιmage
(World Image: The Death and Resurrection of Sacred Cosmology)
Συγγραφέας:   Philip Sherrard


Human Ιmage
It is now only too evident that the revolutionary changes in mental outlook that took place in western Christendom some three or four centuries ago, and that produced the modern scientific movement, are the major cause of the crisis in which the world finds itself today. Yet the terrifying consequences of the practical exploration of modern science are usually attributed not to modern science as such -and still less to the mental picture of the universe which it presupposes- but simply to its misapplication and abuse. We are even told, with a naivety that is as inconsequential as it is typical, that modern science must be good because what it true cannot be evil and since modern science works, or produces results, it must be true.
This book attacks such misconceptions head-on, and at the deepest level. By setting the modern scientific picture of the universe and man΄s place in it against the background of pre-Christian and Christian cosmology and anthropology, the author shows unambiguously how our acceptance of this picture has literally enslaved us to a vast collective lie whose ramification in the major spheres of our thought and action cannot but vandalize and desecrate both ourselves and the world we live in. The thesis is presented with clarity, eschewing sensationalism and appealing to the disciplined intelligence and its capacity for coherend discourse. The last and perhaps most challenging chapter formulates a cosmological vision in the personalized terms of the sacred mythology of the Christian tradition.

Πληροφορίες

Sherrard, Philip
Ο Philip Sherrard (1922-1995) υπήρξε συγγραφέας, ποιητής, μεταφραστής, ακαδημαϊκός, θεολόγος και πρεσβευτής της ελληνικής ορθόδοξης παράδοσης. Γεννήθηκε στην Οξφόρδη, σπούδασε στο Κέιμπριτζ και στο Λονδίνο και έζησε πολλά χρόνια στην Ελλάδα, στην Εύβοια, μαζί με τη σύντροφό του Denise Harvey. Πίστευε ότι ο μεταβυζαντινός πολιτισμός της Ελλάδας ήταν ουσιαστικά και οργανικά δεμένος με την πνευματική παράδοση της Ανατολικής Ορθόδοξης Εκκλησίας και αφιέρωσε μεγάλο μέρος της ζωής του στη μετάδοση αυτής της ιδέας, ιδιαίτερα στον τομέα της σύχρονης ελληνικής ποίησης. Το έργο του είναι πρωτοπόρο σε πολλούς τομείς και για πολλούς άνοιξε νέους δρόμους στον μύθο και τη φαντασία, καθώς και στη θεολογία. Η παρακαταθήκη του περιλαμβάνει μεταφράσεις προς τα αγγλικά έργων των Α. Σικελιανού, Κ. Π. Καβάφη, Γ. Σεφέρη και Ο. Ελύτη, οι οποίες άφησαν το στίγμα τους στα ελληνικά γράμματα στο εξωτερικό. Philip Sherrard (1922-1995) was well-known for his many contributions to the understanding and promotion of the literature and thought of the Greek world. He was educated in Cambridge and London. Among his most notable works in this respect are the: "The Marble Threshing Floor: Studies in Modern Greek Poetry"; "The Greek East and the Latin West"; "Constantinople: the Iconography of a Sacred City"; "Athos, the Holy Mountain"; "The Pursuit of Greece"; "The Wound of Greece"; and his translations, in collaboration with Edmund Keeley, of the poetry of Cavafy, Sicelianos, Seferis and Elytis. He was also the translator and editor (with G. E. H. Palmer and Kallistos Ware) of "The Philokalia", a collection of texts by the spiritual masters of the Orthodox Christian tradition. A book of his own poetry was published in the last year of his life. A profound, commited and imaginative thinker, his theological and metaphysical writings embrace a wide range of subjects, from the study of the division of Christendom into the Greek East and the Latin West, to the spiritualized potential of sexual love and the restoration of a sacred cosmology. He has spent part of his life in Evia, Greece.
