The Anthropological Turn

Anton Losinger

Fordham University Press

One of the most striking and contentious explorations in theology is that of Karl Rahner who provided propositions on how to get away from the reduction of Christian belief through the simultaneous grasp between anthropology and theology. Rahner argues that good deeds along with the way of life, and Dasein (asking for or perhaps, demanding for explanations regarding the beliefs transmitted to us by tradition) are prerequisites to human salvation. The transcendence that Rahner originated was either supported or modified by his contemporaries: Immanuel Kant, Martin Heidegger, and Rene Descartes. Thoughts arising from the conventional to rational views, discussion about fate and free will, salvation granted by God's grace or attained through Man's good deeds, as well as the justification of the reality of the unseen in relation to what is visible are ome of the concerns elaborated in this section.
