Hylemorphistische Theorien der AuferstehungEine kritische Bestandsaufnahme

Zusammenfassung / Summary

The Christian doctrine of resurrection states that we will be resurrected in bodily form. Is this doctrine consistent? To sustain a positive answer to this question, analytic philosophers of religion have developed various metaphysical accounts of personal identity. One prominent account is the hylomorphic model of resurrection. In this article I analyse different theories operating within a hylomorphic framework. I conclude that none succeeds in formulating a convincing account of resurrection, because the status of the anima separata and its relation to the human person remain obscure. A glance at the theological considerations about bodily resurrection of J. Ratzinger, G. Greshake, Th. Schärtl and others confirms this conclusion.
