Louise du Toit, 2007

Die basiese hipotese wat ek voorhou is dat die Joods-Christelike grond waaruit die Westerse samelewing gegroei het, 'n simboliese orde of universum is, wat nie net 'n baie groot aandeel gehad het in die totstandbring van die globale omgewingskrisis waarin ons nou verkeer nie, maar dat belangrike elemente binne hierdie denkstroom apokalipties met die krisis omgaan, en die apokalips selfs moontlik aktief bevorder, aangesien hulle die vernietiging van die aarde sien as deel van God se plan.

philosophical deliberations on the current need for diverse manifestations of the feminine of the divine

Been teaching philosophy at RAU (now UJ) over the past 11 years; PhD was on 'The Making and Unmaking of the Feminine Self' to be published by Routledge; currently thinking of ways to take philosophical ideas beyond academia and to extend my prospective partners in conversation; interested in extending knowledge about African (especially southern African) versions of the feminine of the divine, which are often associated with rivers, lakes and fountains.   Passionate about saving the planet's capacity to support human life and about realligning our spiritual vocabulary and experience to help make this possible and to restore a respectful and mystical relation between humans and the environment. Also interested in alternative economic models and living patterns (new forms of community) in line with environmental sustainability.  Would like to be part of projects to plant trees and re-establish wilderness, and also projects which rebuild human dignity and integrity through something like 'nature therapy'.
