Enrique A. Eguiarte, Mauricio Saavedra La ecología en el De Genesi contra manicheos y el De Genesi ad litteram opus inperfectum de san Agustín
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The article deals with Augustine’s idea about Creation and Ecology in the first two commentaries that the Bishop of Hippo wrote, namely, De Genesi contra manicheos and De Genesi ad litteram opus inperfectum. The article stresses that in those Works, St. Augustine underlines that the triune God is the creator of all things. The article also stresses God’s omnipotence, the Creation ex/de nihilo, and also the ecological ideas that Augustine presents in those commentaries, such as the Philocalia as a path to discover the Beauty of God in his works; the Order of the Creation in which all creatures are necessary and are interconnected between them; the Creation as a House in which God as the paterfamilias takes care of all things; the human being as the one who has to take charge of Creation in the Name of God, and how all Creation is directed towards God.

Rocélio Silva Alves O inexprimível de Jankélévicht, em Glosas sobre um Êxtase de alta contemplação de São João da Cruz
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The article deals with the philosophy of Jankélévitch, in which words such as unknowable, what cannot be expressed are present, and it brings the idea of ambiguous, unfathomable, not separable. This does not mean that his philosophy deals with a chaotic or fruitless reality of what cannot be expressed, but it means that he proposes, in his description of reality, another way of watching the World beyond the real, touchable and specific World, inviting us to contemplate and experience the “I-do-not-what” which surrounds us, which is expressed especially through art. This article addresses a comparison between the mystical experiences of John of the Cross (1542-1591) and the concept of what cannot be expressed of the philosopher Vladmir Jankélévicth (1903-1985). First of all, a brief biography of John of the Cross is presented, stressing his historical context and the “Place” which he describes. Then the article makes an analysis of the poem “Ectasis of High Contemplation”, to stress the elements which are present in the poem, and that help us to approach to Jankélévicth’s philosophy.
