Abstract:

"There would be no existentialism were not man concerned with the nature and destiny of his own existence. The fundamental principle of existential thinking is that man's existence precedes his essence. Essence - that abstraction by which traditional philosophy has sought to encompass the variety, immediacy, concreteness, and subjectivity of an individual human life - is for the existential thinker an irrelevance. Existential thinking has had its origins in the efforts of man to come to terms with his ultimate destiny. Such existential thinking - originating in the Bible and refined in the thought of St. Augustine, Pascal, Kierkegaard - was authentically religious. It is not unusual therefore that Rudolf Bultmann, one of the revolutionary innovators of twentieth-century theology, should have addressed himself to the problem of existence. Moreover, It is not unusual that the essays of Bultmann should reveal his abiding preoccupation with making clear the existential categories that underlie the faith of Christianity and the dilemmas of the modern man who would believe. Existence and Faith contains twenty hitherto untranslated essays which, although they range in content from 'Faith as Venture' and 'The Historicity of Man and Faith' to specific essays on 'Jesus and Paul' and 'The Sermon on the Mount and the Justice of the State, ' enjoy a unity imparted to them by Bultmann's passionate search for the meaning of human existence and faith"--Page 4 of cover.
