Christianity and Civilization, vol. 1 1946–1948

Emil Brunner

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

In Christianity and Civilization, First Part: Foundations, Brunner attempts to work out something like a Christian philosophy of civilization dealing with some basic principles which underlie all civilization. The author approaches his task systematically, beginning with the Ďproblem of beingí, and then, having established God as creator the world and thus the primary reality and the world as a secondary dependent being, he turns to and builds on civilizationís relation to truth, time, meaning, manís place in the universe and so forth. In the end, he posits that civilization potentially proves vacuous and destructive if it is divorced from its Christian foundation and context.
