Show Summary Details


This Introduction presents many of the common ideas surrounding Karl Barth and the relationship between theology and philosophy. It opens with an analysis of a 1933 debate about Barth’s theology in the Société française de Philosophie, tracks the sentiments that Barth was anti-philosophy or too indebted to it, and then considers three of the more sophisticated accounts of Barth on theology and philosophy offered by Jörg Salaquarda, Henri Delhougne, and Johann Friedrich Lohmann. It closes with a discussion of the overall argument of the book, some of the terms used, and the texts to be analyzed.

Keywords: Barth; theology; theology and philosophy; philosophy of religion; French philosophy
