RECONSTRUCTING AN ECOLOGICAL COSMOLOGY: A SOUTH AFRICAN CONTRIBUTION
AbstractOne of the classic tasks of religious cosmologies is to provide us with a story within which we can live. Cosmologies provide us with a story of the origin and destiny of the universe and of the place of humanity within the cosmos. They answer the questions asked by children and adults alike: Who am I? Where do I come from? What am I doing here? What will happen to me when I die? Storytellers of all cultures seem to refuse to stop short of telling the cosmic story itself, however pretentious that may seem (Rasmussen 1994a:176).
