Faith as Humanity’s Essential Communication Bridge

  • Hermann-Josef Seideneck


The existential experience of death as boundary situation makes it possible to ask the essential question about faith. Philosophical-theological considerations regarding the width and characteristic of faith are discussed in relation to Jaspers’ concept “philosophical faith.” In today’s contrast between faith and knowledge an area of conflict opens up that brings significant relevance to pastoral efforts. At a deep level of deep faith that enables one to carry-on in difficult times, existential communication between humans of different cultures might develop.
