The Unity of Life and the Kingdom of God: Interdependence and Interaction between Individuals, Natures, and the Ground of Being in Paul Tillich’s Eschatology
University of Gävle, Faculty of Education and Business Studies, Department of Humanities, Religious studies.
2015 (English)In: International Yearbook for Tillich Research, ISSN ISSN (Online) 2190-7455, ISSN (Print) 1990-4231, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 81-102Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

During the last decade of his life, Tillich saw the possibility of constructing ethics and theology from below in his multidimensional view of the unity of life. His view brings together the late Plato and Aristotle: essences are potentials which the historical process actualizes and enriches both for all beings and for God as the ground of being. In his eschatology, his differential monism avoids the problems of strict teleological finalism and of a dualism between living beings and God. For Tillich, there is no unbridgeable gap between immanence and transcendence but a mutual bond of connection, interdependence and interaction. In love, the positive in creation and in history is brought into the Kingdom of God and fulfills justice for all beings.
