Starting from Trinitarian Dao: An exemplification of systemic-hermeneutical intercultural dialog between sino-philosophy and Christian theology

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

This essay chooses the idea of Trinitarian Dao (or the Unity of Three Dimensions in one Way, Three Talents and One Way) in the I Ching (Yijihg, Classics of Changes) often regarded as the universal canon in Chinese spiritual culture on the one hand set alongside the doctrine of the Trinity as die fundamental spirit of Christian theology on the other hand, with the idea of trying to create a preliminary conceptualization of intercultural dialogue for a preliminary intercultural dialogue. Regarding the methodological and ontological dimensions, this dialogue will proceed in the way of thinking by means of the so-called systemic hermeneutics. Thereafter, from the point of view of its three tnalectical models of ground-structure theory, the intercultural impact of both paradigms will be exposed. Finally in the dialectic of cultural transformation, cultural contextualization and cultural fusion or cultural creation, the mutual exchange, amalgamation and innovation shall be envisaged.
