Abstrakt


Abe Masao, a Zen exponent and a representative of the third generation of the Kyoto School of Philosophy (Jpn. Kyōto ha) played a significant role in the field of interreligious dialogue. Trying to understand his own religious identity in a much broader context of other religions and worldviews, simultaneously, he looked for significance in plurality and diversity of the religious views, he encountered. His struggle with the issue of religious pluralism resulted in a unique and subjective approach. Analyzing Abe’s reflections, the author considers two meanings of interreligious hermeneutics: the one applied by Abe and the one advocated by him. Abe’s stance analyzed in the context of these two hermeneutical dimensions provides an example of an overall picture of a man confronted with other beliefs.
