    Teaching Theology at African Public Universities as Decolonisation Through Education and Contextualisation.Johan Buitendag & Corneliu C. Simut - 2017 - Hts Theological Studies 73 (1).
    This article is an attempt to provide a systematic and integrative picture of the main contributions presented at the colloquium which addressed the current state of theological education, proposals for the basic values to be laid as foundation for a new theological curriculum and concrete attempts to build such a curriculum in South Africa, the African continent and especially at the University of Pretoria with a particular stress on decolonisation as contextualisation. In dealing with these aspects, the article focuses on (...)

  2. Moving Beyond Confessional Theologies and Secular Philosophies About the World: Towards an Ecodomic Public Attitude About Nature.Corneliu C. Simuț - 2020 - Hts Theological Studies 76 (1).
    This article is firstly an investigation of traditional Christian thought about the world with the purpose of establishing whether Christianity’s three main confessions share similar concerns about the current situation of nature. Secondly, the investigation is followed by a comparison between the common features of these three confessional theologies and similar patterns of thought in the secular world, with the intention of finding ecological issues that are common not only to the three confessional theologies but also to secular philosophies. Thirdly, (...)

    Promoting Ancestry as Ecodomy in Indigenous African Religions.Corneliu C. Simuţ - 2015 - Cultura 12 (2):129-144.
    This paper is an attempt to offer a concrete contribution to the study of indigenous African religions and in particular to the support of creating a set of traditions from whose perspective one could engage in the study of indigenous African religions as well as of African spirituality in general through the unifying theme of ecodomy. Defined in terms of a constructive process, ecodomy seeks to provide families and communities with a common element, that of ancestors, which is not only (...)

    The Logos Between Psychology, Ontology, and Divinity: Fundamental Aspects of the Concept of Logos in the Early Thought of Slavoj Žižek.Corneliu C. Simut - 2014 - Hts Theological Studies 70 (1):01-12.
    Slavoj Žižek's philosophy spans over more than three decades, which is confirmed by the numerous books he published since the late 1980s. Since his thinking about the idea of logos is no exception, this article focuses on what can be termed Žižek's early philosophy, and especially that depicted in his The sublime object of ideology (1989) and The metastases of enjoyment (1994). Whilst the former underlines the psychological aspects of the logos, the latter focuses more on theories about being, as (...)

    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 (...)

    Ecodomical Attempts to Ideologically Transform the World Into a Protective Realm for All Human Beings Through Using the Concept of Goodness in Dealing with the Reality of Religion.Corneliu C. Simuţ - 2017 - Cultura 14 (2):121-140.
    This paper investigates the possibility of identifying various ecodomical or constructive possibilities which have the potential to ideologically transform the world at a global scale in the sense that they can promote a set of ideas with positive connotations in dealing with the extremely complex issue of religion. Whether religion is good or bad, positive or negative has nothing to do with this article’s basic methodology which seeks to isolate various theoretical attempts aimed at approaching the issue of religion through (...)

    Nature as God: A Juxtaposition of Vito Mancuso and Alexander von Humboldt in Their Search for Understanding Reality.Johan Buitendag & Corneliu C. Simut - 2021 - HTS Theological Studies 77 (3).
    This article’s premise is that science holds the promise of deepening religious perspectives on creation. The natural sciences have convincingly proved that nature is not static, or a ready-made creation dropped from heaven. Theologians need to read nature as scientists see it and engage with that understanding theologically.The concept of resonance is applied to denote this tangential relationship as an eco-social constructivist understanding of reality. Two proponents, one scientist and one theologian, have been chosen who share this view of a (...)
