Wahrheit und Positionalität
Truth and Positionality
The tension between truth and positionality permeates the history of numerous conflicts in past and present. These terms mark the antithetic poles of an insurmountable antagonism. Inspired by the model of dialogicity developed in literary aesthetics, the contributors to this volume – Protestant theologians of Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main – attempt to tackle this tension in the context of their academic field. The point is to endure and to exploit the energies generated by the dynamic interdependency of truth and positionality. The emerging dialogic potential turns out to be a promising factor concerning the connectivity of denominationally oriented theology with regard to socially relevant discourses on the significance of religion in present times.
