Die Bedeutung der Bibel für die Theologische Ethik


Fischer, Johannes (2011). Die Bedeutung der Bibel für die Theologische Ethik. Zeitschrift für Evangelische Ethik, 4(55):262-273.

Abstract

Of what importance is the bible for theological ethics? The answer to this question depends on the conception of ethics one endorses. If one takes the task of ethics to consist in the justification of moral judgments, the bible becomes ethically irrelevant – so the author argues. If one endorses a wider understanding of ethics which sees ethics as primarily concerned with revealing and understanding ethical phenomena, things look quite different and the bible provides much food for ethical thinking. One reason for that is the fact that the bible has been a major influence in shaping our culture’s ethical sensitivities.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
