  2. Wessel Stoker (2010). The Place of Art in Kierkegaard's Existential Aesthetics. Bijdragen 71 (2):180-196.
    Primarily because of recent studies , there has been a revaluation of Kierkegaard’s view of art and the aesthetic. This article distinguishes between the ethical aesthetics of the pseudonym B in Either/Or and Kierkegaard’s theological aesthetics. It will show that, while imagination and appropriation are core concepts in both forms of aesthetics, that Kierkegaard’s view of radical transcendence – the qualitative distinction between God and human beings – is the norm only for his theological aesthetics. As a central anthropological category, (...)

  3. Wessel Stoker (2008). The Rothko Chapel Paintings and the 'Urgency of the Transcendent Experience'. International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 64 (2):89 - 102.
    Since the Romantic period, painters have no longer made use of traditional Christian iconography to express religious transcendence. Taking their cue from Schleiermacher’s Reden Über die Religion , painters have sought for new, personal ways to express religious transcendence. One example is Caspar David Friedrich’s Monk by the Sea . Rosenblum argues, in his Modern Painting and the Northern Romantic Tradition , that there is a parallel between Friedrich and the abstract expressionist Rothko with respect to the expression to religious (...)

  4. Wessel Stoker (2007). God, Master of Arts: On the Relation Between Art and Religion. Ars Disputandi 7:1566-5399.
    What does theology have to do with art in this modern period? To make clear why art and religion can be related in a positive way, the question of why art is of value will be posed . Subsequently some examples will be critically discussed of how art and religion have been related in theological aesthetics . Finally, in dialogue with the positions discussed, I will develop my own approach to theological aesthetics.

  6. Wessel Stoker (2000). Are Human Beings Religious by Nature? Schleiermacher's Generic View of Religion and The Contemporary Pluralistic, Secular Culture. Bijdragen 61 (1):51-75.
    This article rejects the claim that human beings are religious by nature. This rejection is controversial. It is always said by catholic and protestant philosophers and theologians that human beings are religious by nature. Schleiermacher holds that the feeling of absolute dependence does not define religion, but it is the defining characteristic that makes a certain phenomenon a religiousone. This defining characteristic is borrowed from christian faith in the one God the creator. I raise two questions: 1. how does Schleiermacher (...)
