Abstract [en]

This essay aims to identify some criteria Lutheran theology must meet when working towards a new construction of human imperfection. It must be contextual and open towards a dialogue with disciplines seeking knowledge of human nature. Theology must take evil and suffering seriously, while still recognizing humanity’s ability to make life better. It must affirm that not only human nature, but also human culture needs transformation.
