Abstract:

One of the world's greatest living philosophers debates with one of the world's foremost theologians an issue of the utmost importance to this generation: Can Christianity survive as a vital force in the modern world? According to Bultmann, leading Protestant existentialist and a practising minister, the traditional religion of the West can best be rescued from skepticism if its "mythological" elements are dropped and only their meanings retained. Jaspers, a found of "Existenz" philosophy, opposes this view and contends that religion without mythology is impossible. In the course of this discussion, a number of basic philosophical, religious and social questions are re-examined, with results that have already had a crucial effect on modern thought.
