Conclusion: The Positive Protest

Show Summary Details


The Conclusion first offers a summary of Barth’s development as regards the relationship between theology and philosophy, giving particular attention to the correspondence thesis and the issue of theology’s independence from other disciplines. Several implications of this study for Barth studies and modern theology more generally are discussed, as well as the question of Barth’s break with nineteenth-century liberal theology. The last section of the Conclusion is devoted to detailing a constructive and synthetic account of theology and philosophy after Barth under the rubric of ‘positive protest.’
