Entrevista con Fredrik Barth  [PDF]
Robert Anderson
AIBR : Revista de Antropología Iberoamericana , 2007,
Abstract: Durante una estancia en la Universidad de Cambridge en el curso 2004-2005 y mientras trabajaba en un estudio sobre los orígenes biográficos de la obra Political Systems of Highland Burma, conversé con varias personas en relación a los recuerdos que tenían de Edmund Leach. Así fue como contacté con Fredrik Barth y le pedí permiso para grabar nuestra conversación y formar parte de la serie anthropological ancestors coordinada por Alan Macfarlane en Cambridge. Tomé un vuelo directo de bajo coste a Oslo en un aeropuerto cercano a Cambridge y subí al tranvía que culmina la ladera de las monta as desde las que se divisa Oslo. Esa brillante y soleada ma ana entré en la casa donde vive desde 1961. El profesor Barth, entonces con 77 a os de edad, acababa de regresar de un tribunal de tesis en la Universidad de Bergen. Los árboles y jardines que rodeaban la casa me recordaban a los que tenemos en Vancouver, y el tranvía siguió hasta llegar al famoso trampolín de esquí de Holmenkollen. La casa está decorada con alfombras y objetos recopilados por el profesor Barth, que se combinan con hermosos y prácticos elementos noruegos. Nos sentamos en una habitación que contemplaba un lago desde una altura de 300 metros, dentro de las fronteras de la ciudad. De vuelta, me llevó a la ciudad en su coche, y en el corto viaje me indicó que era más un esquiador que un conductor. Tuvimos conversaciones que no aparecen en esta transcripción, y quiero manifestarle mi gratitud por su espíritu generoso con un completo desconocido.

Barth syndrome  [cached]

Abstract: First described in 1983, Barth syndrome (BTHS) is widely regarded as a rare X-linked genetic disease characterised by cardiomyopathy (CM), skeletal myopathy, growth delay, neutropenia and increased urinary excretion of 3-methylglutaconic acid (3-MGCA). Fewer than 200 living males are known worldwide, but evidence is accumulating that the disorder is substantially under-diagnosed. Clinical features include variable combinations of the following wide spectrum: dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), endocardial fibroelastosis (EFE), left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC), ventricular arrhythmia, sudden cardiac death, prolonged QTc interval, delayed motor milestones, proximal myopathy, lethargy and fatigue, neutropenia (absent to severe; persistent, intermittent or perfectly cyclical), compensatory monocytosis, recurrent bacterial infection, hypoglycaemia, lactic acidosis, growth and pubertal delay, feeding problems, failure to thrive, episodic diarrhoea, characteristic facies, and X-linked family history. Historically regarded as a cardiac disease, BTHS is now considered a multi-system disorder which may be first seen by many different specialists or generalists. Phenotypic breadth and variability present a major challenge to the diagnostician: some children with BTHS have never been neutropenic, whereas others lack increased 3-MGCA and a minority has occult or absent CM. Furthermore, BTHS was first described in 2010 as an unrecognised cause of fetal death. Disabling mutations or deletions of the tafazzin (TAZ) gene, located at Xq28, cause the disorder by reducing remodeling of cardiolipin, a principal phospholipid of the inner mitochondrial membrane. A definitive biochemical test, based on detecting abnormal ratios of different cardiolipin species, was first described in 2008. Key areas of differential diagnosis include metabolic and viral cardiomyopathies, mitochondrial diseases, and many causes of neutropenia and recurrent male miscarriage and stillbirth. Cardiolipin testing and TAZ sequencing now provide relatively rapid diagnostic testing, both prospectively and retrospectively, from a range of fresh or stored tissues, blood or neonatal bloodspots. TAZ sequencing also allows female carrier detection and antenatal screening. Management of BTHS includes medical therapy of CM, cardiac transplantation (in 14% of patients), antibiotic prophylaxis and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) therapy. Multidisciplinary teams/clinics are essential for minimising hospital attendances and allowing many more individuals wi
Karl Barth as a homilist
TFJ Dreyer
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2007,
Abstract: Any tribute to Karl Barth as the most important theologian of the 20th century must show an awareness of the many facets of his work. He will long be remembered for his monumental contribution to church dogmatics. The inspiration for his dogmatics was his dilemma in preaching the Word of God. Preaching and proclaiming the Word of God were his main interests. This article attempts to analyse his homiletic stance, not only as an academic theory, but in relation to his own sermons. Finally, the importance of Barth's theology for preaching in a postmodern society is outlined HTS Theological Studies Vol. 63 (4) 2007: pp. 1473-1491

Karl Barth and the future of dogmatic theology
Alasdair I.C. Heron
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v58i3.593
Abstract: The article discusses Karl Barth’s contribution to dogmatic theology. It describes Karl Barth’s personality and shows how his theology was put to practice in writing, in teaching, in debate, in conflict, in friendship and in opposition. Some negative comments on Barth are for example levelled at his liturgical insensitivity, unbalanced and exclusive emphasis on preaching, and his individualistic dislike of the established church, its governing structures and baptismal practice. The article focuses on Barth’s impulses for the discipline of dogmatics and demonstrates developments and directions in his work. Critically reservations regarding instances where it might seem better for theologians not to follow Barth, are specified. The article also offers a glimpse into the future of dogmatic theology seen through the lens of Karl Barth.
Who is the sinner? The view of Karl Barth  [cached]
F.J. van Zyl
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v63i4.262
Abstract: This article focuses on Karl Barth’s view of the human being as sinner. In accordance with his christological approach to all theological matters, the article aims to argue that Barth describes the image and character of the sinner as mirrored by the obedient suffering and vicarious death of Jesus Christ on the cross in the place of all sinners of all times – past, present and future. According to Barth, the price that God paid in surrendering God’s only Son to such suffering indicates the enormous guilt and existence of every sinner. All human beings are hopelessly in debt and can only be delivered from sin through God’s graceful remission of sin.

The Perfections of God in the Theology of Karl Barth: A Consideration of the Formal Structure  [PDF]
Eric Titus
Kairos : Evangelical Journal of Theology , 2010,
Abstract: This treatment of the perfections of God in the theology of Karl Barth serves as an introduction and summary of Barth’s thinking on this topic as found in Church Dogmatics II.1. The focus of the article is weighted to the formal side of Barth’s construction while not ignoring material considerations. As such, the author considers Barth’s understanding of God as the One who loves in freedom, general characteristics of Barth’s understanding of divine perfections, and more specifically the dialectical dyadic paradigm used by Barth in his construction.
