Twentieth Century Theological Method: An Introduction

Mayra Rivera Rivera


The question how one goes about thinking theologically—in light of the situated-ness of language, human experience, other domains of knowledge, and a deepening understanding of the contextual location of theological expression—is a dominant concern for Christian theology in the twentieth and twenty first centuries. This course provides an introduction to the contemporary context for theological reflection by exploring conversations around method and the nature of theology in selected key twentieth century figures, such as Barth, Bultmann, Tillich, Daly, Cone, Kaufman, Tracy, Schüssler Fiorenza, Lindbeck, Grant, Milbank. The course is introductory, and has no prerequisites. Note: Course has additional hour to be arranged.
