Conciliarism is one of the oldest and most essential means of decision-making in the history of the Christian church. Indeed, as a leading Orthodox theologian Alexander Schmemann states, 'Before we understand the place and the function of the council in the church, we must, therefore, see the church herself as a council.' Paul Valliere tells the story of councils and conciliar decision-making in the Christian church from earliest times to the present. Drawing extensively upon the scholarship on conciliarism which has appeared in the last half-century, Valliere brings a broad ecumenical perspective to the study and shows how the conciliar tradition of the Christian past can serve as a resource for resolving conflicts in the church today. The book presents a conciliarism which involves historical legacy, but which leads us forward, not backward, and which keeps the church's collective eyes on the prize - the eschatological kingdom of God.
In his first book, On Markets in the Capitalist Form of Production, Sergei Nikolaevich Bulgakov introduced himself as a person who "shares the sociological point of view", by which he meant someone "who recognizes the regularity of the development of the forms of society, which cannot be eliminated by any concerted efforts on the part of 'critically minded individuals'". Three seminal essays of 1901-1902 form the dossier on Bulgakov's philosophical conversion from Marxism to idealism. Bulgakov's "sophiology" began in Philosophy of Economy. His The Unfading Light forms a pair with Philosophy of Economy. Both books are Schellingian projects, Philosophy of Economy offering an updated philosophy of nature and culture, The Unfading Light a philosophy of revelation. The Unfading Light continues the Vladimir Solov'ëvian project of justification of the world, or "cosmodicy", as Bulgakov called it.
