within the cause of Following famous student Robert P. Scharlemann takes Christology in a considerably new course, suggesting that Christology itself represents a sort of cause and an knowing of selfhood. For the 1st time, Scharlemann establishes a logical position for Christology in philosophical theology.Scharlemann provides a christological phenomenology of the self, tracing the connections among the "I am" of the God who spoke to Moses, the "I am" of Christ, and the "I am" of independent self-identification. How, he asks, can the self that spontaneously responds to Jesus' "Follow me!" be in comparison with the standard, self sustaining self? what's the nature of "following" at the a part of those that resolution the summons of 1 whose identify is "I am"? Pursuing those questions, Scharlemann develops a christological phenomenology of the self—an account during which following ability no longer the expression of the self in motion or mirrored image yet really self-discovery in one other person.With a deep experience of either tradition and philosophy, Scharlemann distinguishes the kinds of cause keen on "following" from these in ethics, aesthetics, and different modes of spiritual philosophic suggestion. His penetrating readings of 19th- and twentieth-century German theological and philosophical traditions supply an creation to lesser-known thinkers resembling Hermann and Picht in addition to a profound critique of significant figures equivalent to Descartes, Heidegger, Fichte, and Kant.Finally Scharlemann outlines a application for a extra systematic and rounded presentation of what Christian doctrine could suggest within the modern international. His paintings might be of curiosity to scholars of theology and philosophy alike.
