|Advisor:||Robertson, John C.|
Going, Cathleen M.
|Abstract:||<p>The thesis seeks to show how Tillich, in laying the foundation for a new structure of religious thought, was developing his basic theological position in a new direction in dialogue with the different spiritual insights of the world religions. It attempts to examine Tll1ich's dynamic-typological approach to the history of religions and to show the significance of the quasi-religions for the encounter of world religions. It seeks to indicate how the dynamic-typological approach to religions is applied to the dialogue between Christianity and Buddhism and it examines the consequences of this type of encounter for Christianity itself. It concludes With an evaluation of Tillich's approach to religions.</p>|
