Beyond a Radical Theology


A response to Don Cupitt's lecture ‘Is a Radical Theology Possible?’ the text of which formed the ground of his book entitled ‘The World to Come’. The paper argues that Cupitt's retention of religion stems from persistence of neurotic defences against anxiety in the social system. It concludes that ‘Man’s terror of facing his transitory aloneness is no ground for the construction of a Theology of Spirit, radical or otherwise’.
