Thinking about the Gap in Paul Tillich’s Conception of God
Thursday, Feb. 8, 4:30 p.m.
Markus Weidler, professor of philosophy at Columbus State University, explores the thought of existentialist philosopher and theologian Paul Tillich.

Tillich, regarded as one of the most influential theologians of the 20th century, was best known for his examinations of faith, Christian revelation, and human experience through modern culture. Weidler will show that there is a tension in Tillich’s thinking about God and explore several ways to overcome this tension.

A native of Berlin, Weidler earned his M.A. and his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin. He taught in New Zealand for two years before joining the faculty of Columbus State University in 2007. His special interests include the dynamics and manifestations of extremist thought associated with the notions of fundamentalism, fanaticism and terrorism.
