How We Create Our WorldsBook - 1994
An investigation of the sources of meaning in language and in human life. It aims to show how we create meaning, and explores how this has given rise to various religions. Since the great religions are now in decline, the book argues, we must seek to create new meanings for our lives and develop new symbol systems. These may develop out of aspects of our cultural past, just as the great religions incorporated aspects of the meaning systems that preceded them. Professor Geering argues that caring for the earth will have to be central in new systems of meaning, and that it is possible to develop these out of our Christian past.
