Title MEANINGFUL STRATEGIES: TRANSCENDENCE IN CONDITIONS OF CONFLICT
 
Creator Schäfer, Heinrich Wilhelm
 
Subject
religion, transcendence, praxeology, Bourdieu, conflicts
 
Description This article focuses on the concept of transcendence from a praxeological point of view. In consequence, in order to clarify the concept the author refers not only to theoretical debates but also to tangible empirical conditions. In the first part, based on the observation that religious practice makes strange claims about reality, he elaborates on epistemological aspects of religious communication and religious action. In the second part, by analyzing religious practice in the context of the Guatemalan Counterinsurgency War, he then discuss the usefulness and ambivalence of the concept of transcendence. Finally, on this basis, he designs a praxeological concept of transcendence.
