A CROSS-DISCIPLINARY CONVERSATION ON LANDSCAPE PROCESSES: GEOMORPHOLOGICAL AND THEOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS ON THE OTHERNESS OF OUR NEIGHBOUR

Peter Houston

Abstract


 

Ecology, with the issue of sustainability, and climatology, with climate change, are two well-known points of departure for theological engagement, especially in the emerging field of eco-theology. Less common is a cross-disciplinary conversation with geomorphology. Geomorphology highlights problems that have arisen as a result of human interactions with landscape processes. Using an example of a problematic area of the N3 outside of Pietermaritzburg this article brings geo-morphological insights into conversation with theology, extending the ideas of inter-connectedness, holism and scale perspectives to locate human thought and actions towards and within the environment as an extension of the ethic to "love your neighbour."
