Example text

The essence of man is his freedom. Sin is committed in that freedom. Sin can t,here£ore not be attributed to a defect in his essence. It can only be understood as a self-contradiction, made possible by the fact of his freedom but not following necessarily from it. Christianity, therefore, issues inevitably in the religious expression of an uneasy conscience. Only within terms of the Christian faith can man not only understand the reality of the evil in himself but escape the error of attributing that evil to anyone but himself.

The idealists identified spirit too simply with reason and reason too simply with God. 2 man is therefore the rational man and his reason is either the source of both vitality and form or it is the source of the order and form which transmutes the anarchic vitality of nature into genuine creativity. The possibility of spiritual destructiveness cannot be envisaged because spirit as reason is regarded as the very principle of order. In opposition to idealistic rationalism romanticism empha~i7~ either the primary importance of natural vitality as a source of human creativity or the significance of the natural unities and forms as sources of order and virtue.

Modern man, whether idealist or naturalist, whether rationalist or romantic, is characterized by his simple certainties about himself. He has aggravated the problem of understanding himself because these certainties are either in contradiction with each other or in contradiction with the obvious facts of history, more particularly of contemporary history; and either they have been controverted by that history or they are held in defiance of its known facts.
