Week 3 – Theology…Culture: Cobb; Chp. 3

Tertullian was more of a separatist from culture, where Augustine saw the providence and grace of God among the culture around him. Tillich then experienced an epiphany himself after gazing at a Picasso that encouraged him through the war. It seems then that with Tillichs’ connection to the Frankfurt school, and Cobb’s explanation of it puts the Marxist view of the culture as important for his study of such. This should be interesting seeing as Barker raised questions as to the reductionism of Marxism, and it’s negative view of popular culture that has ties to Leavis.
