オバーグ・アンドリュー

We cannot choose the results of our efforts but we can choose what efforts we make and when we make those efforts. This is an important time in your life and the decisions you make now will have consequences for many years. I encourage you to take responsibility for everything you do, including who you are. Make yourself into the person you want to be, make your life into something that you create. That effort is what will matter most, and it has nothing to do with “success”.

研究テーマ

現象学、宗教と美術の哲学 (Phenomenology, Philosophy of Religion and Art)

研究概要

My current project is a reconstruction of Christianity along historical-critical lines that seeks to resituate it and re-apply it as an ethical rather than soteriological movement, fitted with an alternate metaphysics that abandons the dogmatic need for any set of beliefs in favor of a looser and more open "weak theology", following John D Caputo's ground clearing work and based on phenomenological methodologies. My contention is that since there is no objective or neutral view possible in the human case, gatherable empirical data can be useful and helpful but cannot allow us to discover ultimate and universal truths (although they can point in such directions, however unknown these must remain in the human condition). To be alive and aware in the way that we are is to be consciously experiential, and these phenomena are what counts most in the shaping of our lives. Thus there exist degrees and levels of "reality" and "truth" for human beings that do not apply to other creatures. Taking this approach into the phenomenology of religion - specifically in the Christian case as expanded from Judaic foundations - I seek the argument for a different comprehension of divinity and divine-human relating, while admitting that "divine" may be more of a "call" than a being or even Being. From this "weak" but “meaty” philo-theological perspective I seek to place human responsibility central for the bringing about of "the kingdom" (understood as a social project) that the personage Yeshua/Jesus is reported to have taught, and moreover within that to reduce Christology to the most minimal extent such that the Christian faith is able to be re-folded (or returned) back into the Jewish context from which it emerged, thereby making the audacious call for a single religiosity where for centuries two very separate practices have been encompassed. Out of this, indeed, further "re-foldings" may be possible, and a re-understanding and re-orientation towards religion writ large made conceivable.
