Abstract

Mystical experience of the divine may not be accessible to everybody, but there are other phenomena, accessible to all human beings, which Peter L. Berger calls “signals of transcendence”. Together with Berger I believe that in the “marginal situations” of human life – in the extreme experiences of oppression and injustice, hunger and death – signals of transcendence are to be found in death-defying hope, the hope of transforming the world for human betterment together with acts of courage and self-sacrifice.
