Raimon Panikkar (1918-2010) is considered one of the most important thinkers of our era. His immense oeuvre is internationally recognized as one of the most innovative contributions to the philosophical, theological, intercultural and interreligious discourse of the 20th century.
Panikkar’s thinking was stimulated by Christianism as well as Hinduism, Buddhism and secular traditions, fact that turns him into an important bridge of dialogue between the Occident and Orient.
The present dictionary collects the main terms and concepts of this great thinker. It will be of interest and help for the readers of the works of Panikkar. First of all because it will help to understand his complex thinking, which many times is based on his very own concepts and terminology often created in a rather ad-hoc way.
It explains terms such as ontonomy, cosmotheandric and diatopical hermeneutics among others, and contextualizes the apparently common terms which Panikkar has designated with another meaning or given a new interpretation.
Furthermore, this dictionary includes explanations of some of the fundamental concepts of Hinduism and Buddhism, which had influenced Panikkar so much and which contribute a lot to the intercultural and most of all interreligious dialogue.
The authors of this dictionary are profound experts of Raimon Panikkar, whom they knew personally as their friend and tutor. They wrote their PhD thesis about his philosophical and theological thinking, and published various texts on his oeuvre.
