From Salvation to Spirituality: Contemporary Transformation of Religion Viewed from East Asia with Susumo Shimazono

6/7/2010; 56 minutes

In recent decades people in the United States, Europe, and Japan have tended to talk about spirituality rather than religion. Is it just a kind of cultural fashion or does it indicate some fundamental transformation of human civilization? Susumo Shimazono, professor of Religious Studies and the University of Tokyo, proposes that the key to understanding contemporary religions will be found by inquiring into the role of the concept of salvation in the history of religions.
