Love, Power, and Justice: Ontological Analyses and Ethical Applications
It reads quickly and its chapters possess the steady flow of thoughts that a good lecturer should present his audience. As Tillich admits, the idea of dealing with terms that carry such gravity, history, and problems is daunting v. As such, he offers as the title suggests only the most basic ontological analysis and possible ethical applications. The ubiquity of the terms under consideration in Love, Power, and Justice to all spheres of thinking especially theological and philosophical arenas presents a unique problem. Their significance warrants special attention to their meaning, yet the breadth of their usage prevents any one thinker from forming an accurate picture of this meaning either individually or relationally. The first chapter reveals the problematic nature of talking about such principles, while chapters II, III, and IV jump headlong into analysis, aiming to elaborate these meanings by determining their individual relation to being, i. Tillich frames love in the polarity of estrangement and reunion
Access options available:. When Tillich speaks of something that " exists," he means something which is finite, is limited by the "categories of finitude" time, space, substance , etc. God, Tillich says, is most assuredly not this.

What is the relationship between love and justice? So far we have considered the perspectives of Kierkegaard, Brunner, and Rauschenbusch. For Rauschenbusch, then, love and justice are ultimately both ways of talking about the solidaristic Kingdom of God. Tillich moves from ontology to ethics. At the most basic level, justice is simply the recognition that is due to something that exists by virtue of the intrinsic power of being within it.
Among the general public, Tillich is best known for his works The Courage to Be and Dynamics of Faith , which introduced issues of theology and culture to a general readership. In academic theology, he is best known for his major three-volume work Systematic Theology —63 , in which he developed his "method of correlation," an approach that explores the symbols of Christian revelation as answers to the problems of human existence raised by contemporary existential analysis.
