Jaspers on Faith and Globalization


Today we are searching for the common ground upon which humans of all origins and faiths can meaningfully meet to contemplate the world, ready to acquire their own history from anew, to clean it and to transform it, but not to surrender it. . .

No one who is religious comes to philosophy, for he does not need it. No one who truly philosophizes is religious; he walks without strings to lead him–dangerously, but in freedom.

Karl Jaspers, Der philosophische Glaube angesichts der Offenbarung p. 17 (1962) (S.H. transl.)
