Joshua Mauldin, Karl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer on the Ethical Life of Modern Society

23-24 maggio_Seminari FSCIRE

Barth and Bonhoeffer reflected on what the rise of totalitarianism meant for the aspirations of modern politics. Engaging the realities of totalitarian terror, they avoided despairing rejections of modern life. The project begins with Barth in the wake of the First World War, moves forward to Bonhoeffer’s thought in the 1930s and 1940s in Nazi Germany, and concludes with Barth’s post-war reflections on modern society
