Excerpt from Martin Heidegger
It may seem strange to include Martin Heidegger in a series of books dealing with Makers Of Contemporary Theology, for Heidegger is no theologian but a philosopher, and he is Often reckoned to be a thoroughly secular philosopher at that. Yet I th... ink it would be true to say that one could hardly hope to advance very far in the understanding of contemporary theology without some knowledge Of Heidegger's thought. His in¿uence seems to appear everywhere - in demythologizing and the problem of hermeneutics; in the doctrine of man; in theories of revelation; in the debate about God; and in other matters besides. Though not himself a theologian, he is a maker of theology, in the same way in which Plato and Aristotle and Kant have been makers of theology. SO we make no excuse for including him in this series. Heidegger's philosophy is no substitute for Christian theology, and certainly it should not be allowed to dominate the work of the theologian, but it does provide the kind of conceptual framework that the theologian needs if he is to state the Christian faith in terms intelligible to today's world.
