Paul J. Tillich : philosophy of art

Copy the text below to embed this resource

Dr. Tillich first deals with the puzzling question of how to deal with doubt in young people. It is important, he explains, to present religious symbols in as clear and persuasive a form as possible, without dictating what the child or young person should believe. Doubt can appear in later life, too, and is often a product of an inability to face life or to escape the pressures of conformity. The second part of the program consists of a variety of comments by Dr. Tillich about the value of art and of modern art in particular, his recollections of his father, and his early decision to devote his life to philosophy and theology. At the end of the program and to conclude the series, Dr. Tillich explains his belief that man must be concerned with the “ultimate” wherever it appears, that he must make an effort to understand his life in terms of that which transcends life, in terms of eternity.
