In this work, Michael Moxter offers a critical reading of Paul Tillich's theology of culture from a phenomenological point of view (against Tillich's realism), shows that Karl Barth's concept of culture depends on a Neo-Kantian background and interprets Cassirer's philosophy of symbolic forms as an alternative to both, Tillich and Barth. He deals with recent discussions in the fields of systematic theology (Pannenberg, M. Taylor) and philosophy (Blumenberg, Habermas), which draw attention to a semiotic concept of the lifeworld , in relation to which the author develops a new approach towards a Protestant theology of culture.
