Abstract [en]

The issues around church and war followed Karl barth during his whole career. His most extensive and systematic discussions of war are found in the Church Dogmatics. Here he questions the naturalness of war and develops a theologically motivated understanding of the practical primacy of pacifism for the disciples of Christ. However, his discussion of possible exceptions qualifies the main line of his argument to such an extent that the latter loses most of its content. His practical imagination was shaped by established semi-national churches and by his native Switzerland. This disjunction between his central theological account and his practical reasoning helps explain why his thoughts on war have been used by proponents of radically different positions. What is lacking is a display of the sort of church life and practice this kind of thinking presupposes. This is true whether one emphasises the main pacifist argument or develops barth’s thought in the direction of the just war tradition.

Abstract [en]

This article critically analyzes two leading cognitive scientists, George Lakoff and Steven Pinker, as competing secular political “theologians”. The idea of Science as savior is at the heart of the set of stories modernity tells about itself. The modern world, it is assumed, has left the age of religion and reached the age of Science. Lakoff and Pinker, who advocate opposing moral and political worldviews, make their claims on the basis of their scientific work, but it is implicit narratives and ontologies that give force to their broader views about morality and politics.

Abstract [en]

Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr has had and still has an exceptionally large influence on American political thinking. The nation-state, in his case primarily the USA, was throughout his career both the main context and the primary object for his thinking. Christian faith, he thinks, is validated by its ability to interpret human reality, including the world of nations. However, this article argues that Niebuhr fails to show the descriptive power of Christian faith. This has to do with both an inadequate understanding of theological rationality and a weak ecclesiology.
