The Ground of Being

Paul Tillich (1886 – 1965) once wrote a short book called My Search for Absolutes. In it he skillfully articulated a way of thinking about morality, ethics and religion that embraced the subjective and objective sides of life. Drawing Absolutism and Relativism together in a synthesis that remained sensitive to both. Todays reflection is an abridged section from the last chapter of the book. Although I have also included the full version. The book itself also includes illustrations from the famous artist Saul Steinberg. This little known book is a good place to start for people new to the work of Tillich.
