PPR360: Modern Christian Thought
Tutor: Anderson Jeremiah
This course, for the most part, concentrates on (Protestant) Christian thinkers from the German-speaking world. These thinkers have dominated the development of Christian thought in Europe and America until very recent times, when various 'political theologies' (Black, feminist and liberationist) started to erode their influence. Our point of departure on this course must be the Enlightenment and its paradigmatic philosopher - Immanuel Kant. We shall begin, therefore, by looking at the challenges facing early nineteenth century theologians, consider the responses of five major Christian thinkers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and we shall end by exploring the challenges facing Christian thought today.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (2 hours) weekly, and seminar (1 hour) fortnightly.
