Dying with dignity : a plea for personal responsibility by Hans Küng( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important book arose out of a series of discussions on voluntary euthanasia held at the University of Tubingen at the end of 1994. In it a distinguished theologian and a distinguished literary critic examine the case for voluntary euthanasia in certain well-defined circumstances and come down firmly in favour of it." "First, Hans Kung argues passionately for help in dying to be allowed in certain cases. He looks in depth at questions of life and death and at the arguments for and against euthanasia, in terms of the very nature of life, human responsibility, the theological position over euthanasia, and the hope that Christians have about what men and women die into. Then Walter Jens shows how modern literature in particular, both fiction from Tolstoy to Philip Roth and Carson McCullers, and Sherwin T. Nulands best-selling How We Die have illuminated the process of dying and also help to shed light on the question of euthanasia. Dietrich Niethammer, a medical doctor, and Albin Eser, a doctor of law, both add comments from their perspectives and the book ends with a discussion of the points made." "In an epilogue written specially for the English language edition, Hans Kung relates the position of the book to Evangelium vitae, the most recent papal encyclical on moral issues."--BOOK JACKET

Literature & religion : Pascal, Gryphius, Lessing, Hölderlin, Novalis, Kierkegaard, Dostoyevsky, Kafka by Walter Jens( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great visions of Gryphius, Lessing, Holderlin, and Novalis, visions of peace, freedom, and humanity, have not been refuted. They were simply not realized in the modem era and they point to a different future ... the lofty intellectuality and morality of Pascal the Catholic as well as the radical Christianness of Kierkegaard the Protestant have to be taken in here just as much as the mystical depth of Dostoyevsky the Russian and the enigmatic darkness of Kafka the Jew. The eclipse of God, the subsequent twilight of the gods, the downfall of the modem pseudogods can be followed by a new morning in a paradigm of postmodernity (a name for what is as yet unknown). Yes, let us look forward. If I read the signs of the times rightly, toward the end of our century rebellion against the Kafkaesque world is everywhere afoot ... Literature and religion in one: a theme of hope for a new futurean era that can bring forth literature in which great theology and great aesthetics enter once again into an exemplary intimacy. ùHans Knng, from Literature and Religion Up until the seventeenth century, Western culture was essentially synonymous with Christian culture. Then, on the very border between the medieval and the modem worlds, this unity of authority and belief began to crumble. For the first time, an intellectual life developed that was independent of the church, and modem, rational man surged toward new models of the world, society, the church, and theology. In Literature and Religion, Hans Knng and Walter Jens survey the complex, vital, and contradictory search for faith over the past three hundred years through the key works of eight great writers. At the dawn of modernity, Blaise Pascal was the prototype of the new modern man, measuring religion against developments in science, technology, and industrialization. Andreas Gryphius records the forces of the German Reformation, while Gotthold Lessing embodies the Enlightenment. Romanticism is represented by works of Ho1derlin and Novalis, and the crisis of the nineteenth century by Kierkegaard and Dostoyevsky. Finally, Knng and Jens show the demise of the paradigm of modernity in the extreme distance between God and man in KafkaÆs The Castle. Hans Knng, the renowned theologian, and Walter Jens, a literary specialist, bring contemporary postmodern consciousness to bear on centuries of interwoven poetry and faith. Readers today will find answers to the ongoing dialogue on the possibilities and limits of faith in our fractured age
