MEIRING, Jacob J.S.. Ubuntu and the body: A perspective from theological anthropology as embodied sensing. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.2, pp.1-8. ISSN 2074-7705.

The author asks whether the notion of ubuntu truly exists within contemporary South African society and how the experiencing of South Africans' embodiment can be connected to ubuntu - especially amongst black people. The notion of ubuntu is briefly explored within law and theology. The author has recently proposed a model for a contemporary theological anthropology as 'embodied sensing' which functions within the intimate relationship of the lived body, experiencing in a concrete life-world, language, and the 'more than'. It is from this perspective that the notion of ubuntu is explored.
