Justification in the development of Tillich's philosophy
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this dissertation is to examine the basic ideas which guided Paul Tillich in the development of his philosophical position. The investigation takes the form of an analysis of the major writings published by Tillich during his formative years, especially from 1912 to 1926, most of which are not at present available in English. In his student days, under the guidance of Martin Kahler, Tillich found in the Christian doctrine of justification through faith the solution to his personal dilemma of allegiance to traditional religion and dedication to free inquiry. This experience became his guiding principle as he developed his own position, first in his studies of Schelling and then in a series of essays and books in which he sought to re-interpret the meaning of religion, culture, and the cognitive quest.
