theology – ethics – society
“Karl Barth was born in 1886, the son of a Swiss Reformist minister. In 1904, in the midst of his studies, he read Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Practical Reason, stating it was “the first book that truly moved me as a student.”. Barth was a student of Protestant Liberalism at Tübingen and Marburg. It was after his studies at Marburg that Barth spent the next ten years as a Pastor. He became disillusioned with liberal theology with the advent of the first World War, seeing it as prima face evidence against man’s progress and perfectibility, two major doctrinal points of the German liberalists.” > more.
