Marx’s Religious Dilemma: An Islamic Reply

Muhammad Rizwan Junaid, Khadija Naz
Religious concepts of Karl Marx were reactionary and he considered religion as a tool in the hands of oppressors and further captions it as an essence of no individual and social value. His influence travelled with him and socialist philosophy took a new turn and started abolishing religious norms in order to build an all atheist culture. Marx linked religion with economy and financial prosper

Jan-Erik Lane
One may approach the history of political thought through a variety of themes that various philosophers share but handle very differently.

On Dialectics and the Basic Contradiction in Capitalism

Bruno Jossa
The contradiction which is classified as the severest one in most Marxist analyses of society is the plan-market opposition. From this, it follows that the social order that will rise from the ashes of capitalism upon the solution of this contradiction must be a centrally planned and, hence, non-market system. The author emphasizes that, instead, the existence of a different contradiction whose solution is compatible with the

The Saint and the Genius

Florea Stefan
The main purpose of our study is to underline the manifestations of the two mentioned existential realities, embodied in the “saint” and the “genius”. We used the method of comparison to make a parallel between the path to perfection, the sanctity, and the one of the genius, namely the creative capacity of sense and value in human nature. Therefore, according to this comparison, we structured our research into three distinct and c

Is “Time” Speeding up?

Ken Biegeleisen
This article considers the possibility that there might be a plausible scientific explanation for the 900-year lifespans of the characters in the beginning of the biblical book of Genesis. The explanation is based upon the hypothesis that there may be two different forms of “time”. The first form would be “astronomical” time, which is based upon the quasi-perpetual rotational and revolutionary motions of heavenly bodies. The rates

Prosperity Gospel and Its Religious Impact on Sustainable Economic Development of African Nations

Josephine Olatomi Soboyejo
Before the advent of African priests, expatriate missionaries in Africa were noted for their detached and abstemious ways of life.

Interpreting the Book of Revelation and Its Apocalyptic Implications for the 21st Century African Pentecostal Churches

Josephine Olatomi Soboyejo
Revelation is unique as it combines three distinctive literary types: apocalypse, revelation and a letter. The apocalyptic writings are viewed as revealing heavenly secrets focusing on God’s judgment of the wicked and his deliverance of the righteous. The book as a prophecy is a revelation from God that invites a response of trust and obedience though presented in the form of a letter from John to those Churches in

The Self and Self-Awareness

Thomas W. Smythe
In the history of philosophical discussions of the self it has been assumed that self-awareness is a reliable source of knowledge about the nature of a person. This paper reprises and compares the views of Immanuel Kant, and how Gilbert Ryle supplies a partial solution to problems Kant raises. The paper ends with a presentation of my own view of the difficulties these authors address about our
