The English publisher Vernon Press has just released a new anthology about personalism: "Looking at the Sun. New Writings in Modern Personalism".
The book contains contributions from researchers and writers from Britain, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, the United States, Australia and Denmark.
The book's Danish contribution was written by Jan Nilsson (Priest and Member of Curas Board). His chapter is about how the Christian thought on trinity helped shape personalism, especially as regards the relational character of man. The chapter is called "Philosophical Implications of the Concept of Trinity”
Summary from Vernon Press
Every kind of exploration is touched in some way by a philosophy of persons; touched and often vitally enhanced. This collection sets out to mine this rich seam of influence, bringing together authors keen to strike new developments and applications. Together, they have put their philosophy of persons to work in fields as wide-ranging as the moral and the metaphysical, the practical and the political, the cultural and the cosmological.
In doing so, they have drawn on and illustrated the depth and breadth of modern Personalist thought, demonstrating its crucial relevance to debates across the entire philosophical spectrum.
Whether they are familiar with the Personalist tradition or no, readers from every corner of the philosophical world will find much here to challenge and stimulate them. Most importantly, they will find a new and badly needed philosophical perspective.
