xii/284 pages pages; Paul Johannes Tillich was a German American Christian existentialist philosopher and theologian who is widely regarded as one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century. Among the general public, he is best known for his works "The Courage to Be" (1952) and "Dynamics of Faith" (1957) , which introduced issues of theology and modern culture to a general readership. Theologically, he is best known for his major three-volume work "Systematic Theology" (195163) in which he developed his "method of correlation," an approach of exploring the symbols of Christian revelation as answers to the problems of human existence raised by contemporary existential philosophical analysis. Width: 6.25" Height: 8.5". "In this volume Paul Tillich establishes his position, philosophically, religiously and politically. Some idea of the scope of the work can be gained by an outline of the four parts into which the book has been divided. The first is an autobiographical sketch in which the author shows his boundary position in temperament, social class, theory and practice, theology and philosophy, religion and culture, Lutheranism and Socialism, Idealism and Marxism, etc. In the second part under the title of "Philosophical Categories of the Interpretation of History," he treats the Demonic as a contribution on the interpretation of history and Kairos and Logos as a study in the metaphysics of knowledge. In the third part, under the title of "Political Categories of the Interpretation of History," he attempts a philosophical interpretation of the problem of power and considers the two roots of political thinking, human existence and political consciousness.. In the last part, entitled "Theological Categories of the Interpretation of History," he considers the church and culture, the interpretation of history and the idea of Christ, and Eschatology and History."
