Kreative PassivitätÜberlegungen zur theologischen Anthropologie im Gespräch mit Hartmut Rosa und Eberhard Jüngel

Zusammenfassung / Summary

The article examines the anthropological foundations of Hartmut Rosa’s “theory of resonance” and relates them to Eberhard Jüngel’s concept of “creative passivity.” In this way, an approach to theological anthropology is outlined that circumvents the dichotomy of autonomy and heteronomy. Furthermore, an attempt is made to give Jüngel’s revelation-based theology an anthropological grounding. Finally, the potential for ecumenical understanding regarding the opposition of “cooperatio” and “mere passivity” is shown: The concept of creative passivity, modi ed by the interplay between Jüngel and Rosa, makes it possible to account for the existential and anthropologically describable integration of human persons into God’s salvatory work while still rejecting any human self-efficacy and active participation in the redemption.
