Atmospheres of Synergy: Towards an Eco-Theological Aesth/Ethics of Space

Sigurd Bergmann
Issued Date: 24 Feb 2007


This essay moves the theme of space, place and surrounding from the
margins to the centre of Religious Studies/Theology and Environmental
Science. After a survey of diverse concepts of space in science, religion and
environmentalism, which challenge scholars to explore the ‘trialectics’ of
religion at a deeper level, it proceeds to a detailed presentation and discussion
of three elaborated approaches in phenomenology, aesth/ethics and
anthropology. After having drawn together the three and related them to
the study of religion and environment, the third section proposes a
reformulation of the agenda of science with regard to nature, religion and
Europe. In conclusion, a pneumatological miniature will suggest a direction
for further Christian reflection concerning the salvation of Creation, in
synergy with the Spirit of Space.
