This introduction to the book presents its point of departure and structure. It evokes how theological anthropology is being put to the test: in the face of contemporary developments in the spheres of culture, politics and science, traditional perspectives on the human person are no longer adequate. Yet can theological anthropology move beyond its previously established categories and certainties and renew itself in relation to the contemporary insights which challenge these? Its contributors share a fundamental methodological option for a critical-constructive dialogue with contemporary culture, science and philosophy. The different chapters are presented in a threefold structure. The chapters 1 to 4 tackle the challenges related to the classical natural law tradition (part 1), the chapters 5 to 7 deal with the modern conception of the subject (part 2), and the chapters 8 to 10 the postmodern awareness of diversity in a globalizing context (part 3) from a theological perspective.

Keywords:   Theological anthropology, Natural law, Science, Subject/self, Postmodernity, Globalization, Human Person, Systematic theology, Theological Ethics
