Asian Theologians Between East And West A Postcolonial Self-Understanding(東、西之間的亞洲神學家──一個後殖民理論的自我理解) / 黃慧貞





This paper will examined the role of Asian theology and the location of Asian theologians in the light of the postcolonial discourse on identity, power and the politics between East and West. In view of a postcolonial critique, while Asian theology has successfully established itself as an counter-movement to the prevalent dominance of Western Christian traditions, Asian theologians themselves are being caught in the polemics of East versus West and “allow” Asia to remain as ‘other” to the West: In order to have their own identities, the writer argues Asian theologians should pay more attention to the particularities and diversities of experience among Asians rather than the claims of commonality.
