Speaking of Absolutes!

Paul Tillich on His Absolutes

These absolutes were: the structure of the mind that makes sense impressions possible, and the logical and semantic structures of the mind; the universals that make language possible; the categories and polarities that make understanding of reality possible.  Others were the unconditional character of the moral imperative, regardless of its contents, the the principle of justice--acknowledgement of every person as a person.  Finally, there was agape, love, which contains and transcends justice and unites the absolute and the relative by adapting itself to every concrete situation.  (My Search for Absolutes, New York: Simon and Schuster, 1967, page 40.)
