It is contended that Falk Wagner's famous charge that Tillich just posits the existence of the Unconditional without further argument overlooks the transcendental character of Tillich's early writings from the nineteen twenties. There the transcendental is utilized for legitimating the transcendent. Tillich's transcendental account resembles the ontological argument in that the question of the transcendent's existence is affirmed via an inquiry into the conceptual implications its concept harbours. In his later writings, Tillich's abandons this transcendentalism in favour of his 'critical phenomenology'. The weaknesses of this version of phenomenology are brought out in a comparison with Husserlian phenomenology. Finally, a remedy for the weaknesses of Tillich's approach is suggested by drawing on current antifoundationalist thought.
