The theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, whose genius is now generally recognized, has its origins in his early investigations of philosophy and the arts, which this book lays out in full for the first time. This book will enable English-speaking readers for the first time to come to terms with Balthasar's relation to European - especially German - philosophy and literature. It is the only way readers can gain a comprehensive overview of a huge and complex output crucial to his later work. Aidan Nichols is a Dominican of Blackfriars Cambridge who has published some thirty books in various areas of historical and dogmatic theology.

Aidan Nichols entered the Dominican Order in1970, and has since worked in Edinburgh, Oslo, Rome and Cambridge, where he nowlives. His other publications include TheArt of God Incarnate and The Shape of Catholic Theology, among others.

Review:

"This is a masterly work that will be read by all Balthasar scholars, but also by scholars interested in the intersection of theology and literature. Nichols's book is so good, it makes unnecessary another book on this topic!"—Cyril O'Regan, University of Notre Dame

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book investigates Balthasar's early explorations of music and the other arts, before launching into a ramifying but controlled survey of his - often highly original - interpretations of major philosophers and literary figures in the European tradition from the early modern period until the 1930s. Balthasar seeks not only to discover elements of truth, goodness and beauty generally in a rich range of figures, where especial attention is given to the classical German philosophers (Fichte, Schelling, Hegel) and Nietzsche, as well as to dramatists and novelists (notably Goethe, Schiller and Dostoevsky), as well as to intellectual giants of his own century, such as Bergson, Scheler and Barth. He also intends to prove that writers who had lost a living contact with the biblical revelation carried by Christianity were incapable of reconstituting a synthesis of ideas about the goal of man and the universe which could be taken for granted in the high Medieval epoch.At the same time, the modern writers he investigates add, in his view, crucial enhancements of human understanding - particularly in relation to history and the human subject - which must be factored into any new overall vision of the future of the human soul and indeed the human species in its cosmic environment.
