Order Description
Twentieth-Century Philosophy of Religion textbook edited by Graham Oppy and Nick Trakakis
chapter eleven on Paul Tillich

Paul Tillich’s thought. For the discussion, please explain why he claims that “God does not exist?” (p. 137)
Tips: you may choose to consider the existential situation of non-being as it relates to God as being-itself; Tillich’s account of religious symbols that participate in being-itself; his notion of the human experience of religious symbols as matters of what concerns us ultimately; and/or, the adequacy of being-itself as a literal term for God.
