dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is (1) to explore the theological significance of Berdyaev's idea of human creativity and to determine its relation to a Christian doctrine of salvation, and (2) to identify the major theological presuppositions which undergird this idea, compare them with the thought of Paul Tillich and L. Harold DeWolf, and evaluate them. The study engages the thought of Berdyaev at its most inclusive and determinative point--his dualism of spirit and nature. It then narrows to an investigation of the content and meaning which is given to the idea of "spirit." On the basis of theological meanings which appear, the preliminary conclusion is drawn that the main theological concern of Berdyaev's teaching on human creativity involves the problem of a particular understanding of man's relationship to God Following a study of Berdyaev's doctrines of God and man, and an identification of the marks of the creative experience of God and its cosmic consequences, the conclusion is dram that Berdyaev, in his teaching on human creativity, seeks to give an interpretation of the meaning of Christian salvation.
