Show Summary Details


The first part of Chapter Seven covers Barth’s 1960 essay ‘Philosophy and Theology’ and shows that many of the essay’s key themes can already be found in the 1924–6 Göttingen Dogmatics, albeit in milder forms. The second part deals with theology and philosophy in the last lectures Barth gave before his retirement, lectures subsequently published as Evangelical Theology. The third part presents and analyzes Barth’s understanding of theology and philosophy in his retirement years through a glance at roundtable discussions and question and answers period held at Princeton, Chicago, and several other places in Europe. Robert Jenson’s and Ingolf Dalferth’s accounts of Barth on theology and philosophy are also discussed.
