Beyond Violence

This chapter presents a paper given at the international conference titled “Beyond Violence: Religious Sources for Social Transformation.” The paper focuses on categorial violence, exercised against whole categories of others, people therefore that one may never have known or been in contact with. It discusses the metaphysical meanings of violence, how some people become targets, sacred killing, and some modes of transition to new forms of categorial violence. It then considers ways to lessen or get rid of violence.

Keywords:   conference, Beyond Violence, categorial violence
