Languages of publication
Through an analysis of the human experience structure in Schillebeeckx’ theology, this article examines the anthropological conditions of the potential religiosity of humankind. The methodical validity of the approach: comprehending the image of humanity used in Schillebeeckx’ theology presupposes a formal division of epistemic levels in its attitude towards humankind. The differentiation between the “first”, “pre-religious” basic level in theological language usage clarifies the given theological intention better. The validity of the content: in his theology Schillebeeckx works with the principle of the autonomy of the world and of humankind. As he seeks a field of values proper to religion, he allows the general human level to maintain its authenticity. The human experience structure in Schillebeeckx’ concept displays human authenticity on its basic level, while at the same time it proves to be a transcending system in principle. As such it can and should be the starting point for an explicit understanding of humanity’s religious dimension.
