Tillich: Issues in Theology, Religion, and Culture Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group fosters scholarship and scholarly exchanges that analyze, criticize, and interpret the thought or impact of Paul Tillich (1886–1965) and that use his thought — or use revisions of or reactions against his thought — to deal with contemporary issues in theology, religion, ethics, or the political, social, psychotherapeutic, scientific, or artistic spheres of human culture. We cooperate with the North American Paul Tillich Society (a Related Scholarly Organization of the AAR), which is linked with the German, French, and other Tillich societies. Papers at our sessions are published in the Society’s quarterly Bulletin without prejudice to their also appearing elsewhere.

Call for Papers: 

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Paul Tillich's death on October 13, 1965, we call for papers that assess Tillich's impact in a variety of areas, such as philosophical theology, religion and science, black theology, feminist theology, Asian theology, art(s) and religion, and popular culture.

We are also interested in papers that present an exploration of future possibilities for incorporating Tillich's ideas. For example, in his last public lecture in Chicago he specifically stated that his hope for the future of Christian theology lay in its encounter with world religions. What progress has been made in interreligious dialogue, and what remains to be accomplished? Papers that address other aspects of the range, diversity, and depth of Tillich's thought, past, present, and future, are welcome.

We also welcome suggestions for roundtable sessions. A roundtable session has one announced theme and participants in the session address that theme but do not present separate formal papers. Please provide information about the theme under consideration, a list of participants’ names and institutions of affiliation, the name of the person who will preside, and the name of the person(s) asked to respond (if applicable.)
