Learning outcomes
The lectures aim to improve the understanding of what mankind means as a concept of theological anthropology. In the context of the development of the Hebrew, Ancient and Christian Western culture and in connection with the meanings that are absorbed and treated in theology, students will be presented with the core of Christianity's view on mankind. An introduction into the differences of Christian anthropologies leads to differentiated knowledge, which enables to distinguish rather than ideologize. The lectures close with analyses of what are felt to be current issues, showing that it is possible to apply criteria of theological anthropology to people's real experiences, their conditions and affairs. This gives evidence of the significance and the essential contribution of the Christian anthropological approach. Theological anthropology cannot be understood in a historicizing manner as a "relic" but as a contemporary, specific attitude. As a theory which, in the width of its context, determines good-quality practice.
Students will gain the ability to differentiate between basic types of Christian anthropologies, and also the non-Christian anthropological discourse.
