Religion, das Phänomen des Religiösen, Religiosität als Verhaltensweise sowie die vielfältigen Formen religiöser Praxis stehen im Zentrum wissenschaftlicher Debatten und alltäglicher sozialpolitischer Diskussionen über die Grenzbestimmungen von Kulturen, Gesellschaften und Individuen. Dieser Band versammelt Beiträge aus den Natur-, Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften, um einen interdisziplinären conversation zum Thema Religiosität zu eröffnen. Der Diskursteil enthält einen Hauptbeitrag, Kommentare aus unterschiedlichen Fachgebieten sowie eine Replik. Komplettiert wird das Jahrbuch mit den Rubriken „Forschung“, „Beiträge“, „Projekte“, „Rezensionen“ und „Kalender“, die allesamt zur Diskussionslandschaft einer Interdisziplinären Anthropologie beitragen.

Roots of Religious Extremism, the: Understanding the Salafi Doctrine of AL-Wala' Wal Bara'

One of many matters in modern Islamic inspiration which has attracted substantial realization among Muslim students and in the Muslim group is the legitimate and applicable perspective of Muslims to relationships with non-Muslims. an immense resource of bewilderment and controversy on the subject of this courting comes from the allegation that Muslims needs to reserve their love and loyalty for fellow Muslims, and reject and claim conflict at the remainder of humanity — such a lot acutely visible in the course of the Islamic notion of Al-Wala' wal Bara' (WB) translated as “Loyalty and Disavowal”, which seems to be important within the ideology of recent Salafism.

Example text

For a clarification of these issues the argument could profit from an inclusion of literature of early ethology (comparative animal psychology) of the Lorenzian type. Ritualization as defined by ethologists is behaviors that have changed meaning and function within an evolutionary time-frame. These behaviors are usually short and distinct gestures making communication precise. To give an example, a lowering the head, formerly a deferential way of behaving, became a gesture signaling a greeting in humans.

Again the question is what makes humans act in a way that really is cooperative. Again we of course see that in everyday life that human beings cancel their commitments without asking for permission. The author points to the very important connection between cooperation and justice as a means for eradicating the habit of monopolizing rewards. This merits comment from the perspective of OT studies. The idea of justice was applied already very early in the history of religion with the notion of God as the one who guarantees justice for human beings who acted in an appropriate (cooperative) way.
