By Jyri Komulainen

Raimon Panikkar (b. 1918), a Catalan-born Hindu-Christian, is a favorite theorist of interreligious discussion. This research supplies an in depth research of his theology of religions. at the foundation of the latest resources to be had, it seems that even his "radical pluralism" can't eschew the inherent difficulties attribute of pluralistic theologies of religions. in contrast to different pluralists, Panikkar doesn't sign up for the Enlightenment culture. as a substitute, his plea for the transformation of current religions relies on an idiosyncratic "cosmotheandrism," which attracts on either primordial spiritual traditions and existentialist philosophy. the necessities of interreligious discussion, as defined in his paintings, therefore entail dedication to a selected cosmology and mode of awareness.
