Llamada a contribuciones: “Comparative Religions” – nº 32 Revista Española de Educación Comparada

Current phenomena of globalization and postmodernity represent a specially favorable time for the rethink of the always debated relation among ideology and religion. Postmodernity, and its attributes to the celebration of diversity, difference and the voices of the other, reveal to be particularly propitious for the articulation of syncretical and dialogical processes which support aspects such as the religious ecumenism and the notion of the secular in societies influenced by Modernity and its features of universalism, normativism, tradition, defined identity, existential security and certainty. The new technologies prevailing in our globalized world provide forms of dissemination of modern metanarratives and of their postmodern correctives in a globe that, beyond the manifest historical differences, reveals a social axiological teleology of great convergence in what concern parameters such as the eradication of social injustice.  The present monographic section on Comparative Religions seeks to reflect upon the role of religions and its implication for comparative education, from a comparative historical perspective, in this current ephocal time of epistemological skepticism, ethical subjectivism, distrust of reason and a suspicion of the role of ideology in the maintenance of the political and economic power.
