Prophetic Interruptions: Critical Theory, Emancipation, and Religion in Paul Tillich, Theodor Adorno, and Max Horkheimer (1929-1944)
By author: Bryan L. Wagoner
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H944
ISBN: 9780881466348
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
PROPHETIC INTERRUPTIONS initially draws numerous, yet previously unknown, connections between Paul Tillich, Theodor Adorno, and Max Horkheimer during their shared years in Frankfurt and New York, focusing particularly on the years 1929–1944. While Critical Theory was being formulated, Tillich, the teacher and colleague of Adorno and Horkheimer, respectively, was working on his own religious social(ist) theory. Moving beyond this historical background, Wagoner shows how these personal connections evolved and were mutually engaging. Instead of pursuing discernible mutual influence among Tillich, Adorno, and Horkheimer, the book instead demonstrates that their ideas were forged in the crucible of friendship and common purpose, toward the common end of emancipation.

In his search for “the God above the God of Theism,” Paul Tillich focuses on “phenomenal empowerment,” the experience of overcoming the conflict between one's goals and one's inner barriers.

ISBN: 9780881466829
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Paul Tillich's account of "ultimate concern" has been crucial for his theological legacy. It is a concept that has been taken up and adapted by many theologians in an array of subfields. However, Tillich's own account of ultimate concern and many of the subsequent uses of it have focused on intelligibility: the ways it makes what is ultimate more accessible to us as rational beings. Contributors include: David H. Nikkel, Kayko Driedger Hesslein, Beth Ritter-Conn, Tyler Atkinson, Courtney Wilder, Adam Pryor, and Devan Stahl.

Product Format: Paperback

For Paul Tillich three powerful spiritual forces determine our contemporary situation: science, technology, and capitalism. Culture, as he understands it, is the form of religion and religion is the substance of culture. From this perspective our contemporary “situation” inherently manifests religious and ethical dimensions. Tillich’s mediating theology requires an understanding of religious symbols and of the contemporary world to which they speak. According to J. Mark Thomas, “Doing theology today without an understanding of the dynamics of our technological era would have been, for him, impossible.”
