in theologischer Perspektivevon Wolfhart Pannenberg
This is the first comprehensive depiction of anthroplogy since the important works of Scheler, Pleßner, Gehlen and Roth to assume that human life is intrinsically religious in nature. It combines a wealth of scientific observations to form a clear and challenging outline of the human race. It starts with the contradiction between man´s extraversion and introversion and pursues the questions of our identity. Pannenberg touches not only on the problems of personal identity formation in self-confidence, affectivity and conscience, he also comments on the major themes of cultural anthropology such as play and language, establishment of institutions and historicity. The publisher is pleased that his classic work is once again available.
