TH6/753 – Imagination and Interpretation in Post-Liberal Theology
View outline (PDF) Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Richard Topping
Postliberal theology features imagination as a primary human faculty in both constructive and deconstructive theological endeavour. In this course, we will examine the work of a range of postliberal theologians, philosophers, pastoral theologians and biblical scholars on the role of imagination in interpretative and constructive engagement. Particular attention is paid to the intellectual conditions that have lead to the importance of imagination in theology, to the role of scripture in funding and forming ‘Christian’ imagination and to the critical role of ‘Christian’ imagination in reading the world.
