 papo01_400

Author’s Preface to the Announcement: I’d like to share with the readership and editorship of Ovi magazine the announcement of a forthcoming book of mine on Democracy and Religion, due out in December. In the first place I remain grateful to Ovi’s editor in chief Thanos Kalamidas for his generous endorsement of the book reflecting his constant support in the publication of the majority of the essays constitutive of the book. I am confident that the readers who liked those essay in Ovi will be motivated to acquire the book and give them a second look.  Besides the front and back cover of the book I attach here some warm endorsements generously supplied by Thanos and other colleagues:

“Democracy is not a political concept but it is a way of life. It is a fundamental axiom of a healthy society. The conversation between life and democracy is a constant process and includes the nexus between democracy and religion. Professor Paparella’s essays on the nexus between Democracy and Religion, masterfully unveil the truths in this nexus, without avoiding ideological, theoretical or political conflicts. They search in depth, under the surface of contemporary practices and events, for true relationships and communications between religion, democracy and a healthy society.”

Thanos Kalamidas, Chief Editor Ovi magazine & Ovi project

“True to form, my fellow Yale alumnus Dr. Emanuel L. Paparella has once again come out with a brilliant book of essays. This one deals with the thorny but perennial theme of the interface between Religion and Politics, two human phenomena which have had a love-hate relationship from time immemorial within the history of civilizations. Indeed, the nexus religion-politics has constituted a passionate scholarly concern of his for several decades. It appears not only in his Ph.D. dissertation on the Concept of Providence within the philosophy of history of Giambattista Vico, presented in the late 80s at Yale University, but in just about all of his extraordinary books within the field of cultural anthropology. Dr. Paparella has been reflecting long and hard on this thorny subject. This book will delight readers interested in the history and development of civilizations. It is replete with original insights and is nothing short than the distillation of years of reflections on the subject. Those reflections will prove essential to any contemporary attempt at rescuing our troubled Western civilization which Dr. Paparella describes as a civilization in search of its soul.”
                 
--Dr. Michael Vena, Professor Emeritus at Southern Connecticut State University

“Emanuel L. Paparella has for many years researched the hot theme of the nexus between religion and politics, or religion and democracy. He has done so on a purely theoretical level but also on an historical level, thus exploring a vast field of knowledge. He possesses a  consummate ability to relate to each other different cultural traditions from which he is able to derive original points of reflection. The theme of the nexus religion and politics, given our current philosophical confusion on fundamental values, is, in my opinion, central for the construction of a society which remains free and just, as professor Paparella certainly augurs.”
                     --Professor Ernesto Paolozzi, philosophy professor at the University of 
                       Suor Orsola Benincasa, Naples, Italy.

“Dr. Paparella's choice of subjects is wide and varied, reflecting on problems both old and new, and makes for engaging, thought provoking reading. Though it has been said there is nothing new under the sun, reading Dr. Paparella's work gives one a new understanding and appreciation for the great philosophers through the ages, and an invigorating direction for the future.”
                   
--Professor Michael Newman, Broward College, Davie, FL
