The Karl Rahner Society (KRS)

Studies of his thought, the publication of his works, and reflections on his spirit

The Karl Rahner Society was founded in 1991 to promote the study of the writings of the German theologian Karl Rahner. The purposes of the Society include:

  • the publication of critical editions of his works in English;
  • reflection on his thought and on works that carry forward the spirit of Rahner's enterprise, particularly in the fields of theology and philosophy;
  • collaboration with other scholarly groups concerned with his work.

With these goals the Society hopes to make a contribution to the ongoing assessment and reception of Rahner's work. The Society meets once a year in conjunction with the annual convention of The Catholic Theological Society of America. More information is available at www.karlrahnersociety.com. There are three membership levels:

  • Active membership is open to all those who possess the doctoral degree in theological or related studies, and have been actively engaged in at least one of the Society's purposes. In exceptional cases, active membership can be given to those whose scholarly achievements meet the standards customarily demanded for the doctorate.

  • Associate membership is open to those pursuing doctoral studies in theology or related fields, and who manifest an interest in at least one of the purposes of the Society.

  • Friends of the Society of Karl Rahner are those interested parties who do not belong to either of the above categories but have a vested interest in the scholarship of Rahner. Friends are non-voting members in the Society.
  • Membership include a subscription to the Marquette University journal, Philosophy and Theology. Online access includes all issues from vol. 1 (1986) to the present.
