Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (GER)
This seminar is the first event in which Alain Daniélou, a very unorthodox author greatly resisted (and even rejected) by Academe, is part of the discussion literature at a German university within the field of Philosophy of Religion. The wide scope of the seminar includes a systematic approach to the question of a possible intrinsic link between eroticism and religion, not only in the East (India and China) but also in Christianity.
