In this engaging dialogue, Zygmunt Bauman, sociologist and
philosopher, and Stanislaw Obirek, theologian and cultural
historian, explore the place of spirituality and religion in the
world today and in the everyday lives of individuals. Their
conversation ranges from the plight of monotheistic religions cast
onto a polytheistic world stage to the nature of religious
experience and its impact on human worldviews and life strategies;
from Messianic and Promethean ideas of redemption and salvation to
the possibility and prospects of inter-religious dialogue and the
factors standing in its way.While starting from different places,
Bauman and Obirek are driven by the same concern to reconcile the
multiplicity of religions with the oneness of humanity, and to do
so in a way that avoids the trap of adhering to a single truth,
bearing witness instead to the multiplicity of human truths and the
diversity of cultures and faiths. For everything creative in human
existence has its roots in human diversity; it is not human
diversity that turns brother against brother but the refusal of it.
The fundamental condition of peace, solidarity and benevolent
cooperation among human beings is a willingness to accept that
there is a multiplicity of ways of being human, and a willingness
to accept the model of coexistence that this multiplicity requires.
