this blog develops the idea that a theory of man in history can be worked out around the theme that man's self expression in culture and society is motivated by the desire to find meaning in man's existence. i proceed by summarizing seminal works that provide insights into the dynamics of this process, with the view that the culmination of this exploration was reached with god's self revelation in jesus. i'll hopefully also explore the developments that followed this event.
To all readers and commenters! It's been a very busy year for me. The comments--and simply knowing that people are reading--have pushed me to learn or relearn, to think and rethink positions. Thanks to everyone.
