Daniël Chantepie de la Saussaye (1818-1874) was the founder of the so-called ‘ethische theologie’, an important branch of the Dutch protestant theology between 1850 and 1950. La Saussaye’s theology is characterized by a broad openness for nature, experience, history and culture within a consistent christocentric perspective. His central idea is the fundamental correspondence between man’s nature and his natural desires on the one hand and God’s revelation in Christ on the other. La Saussaye’s answer to the challenge of the Enlightenment can be interpreted as a modern translation of the classic augustinian view on God and man.
