Talk by Rudolf Bultmann
Read by the Rev. E. H. Robertson
The name of Bultmann is associated with the demythologising controversy. The main critics of his point of view have been seriously troubled about his attitude to historical happenings. In this talk he turns his attention to history and asks what kind of a pattern modern man expects to find in history. He claims that it is impossible for man to stand outside history and judge its movements and meaning. The nature of man is that he is totally at the mercy of history. In history there is nothing of absolute value: all values are relative.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
