The Community of Freedom

Barth and Presuppositionless Theology


Rolf Ahlers

Contents: With constant attention to the influence of Hegel's on Barth's triplicism the book promotes a «natural theology» of rationality critical of all forms of thought that operate with transcendental, hermeneutic, political or other presuppositions. The natural theology developed by Barth mandates a reinvestigation of the relation of philosophy and theology. Culturally, the book promotes the democratic «community of freedom» with special attention to the relation of law and religion, politically, a theological ethics of politics that is critical of any form of political theology on the left or right as also liberation theology.
