This dissertation investigates the way in which the actualistic ontology which underlies the Church Dogmatics of Karl Barth affects his conception of ethical agency. It analyses this effect along three paths of inquiry: noetic, ontic, and telic. The dissertation therefore explores not only the discipline of theological ethics as Barth construes it, but also the ontological import which he attributes to ethical action and its teleological purpose. Along the way, it engages fruitfully with a variety of critiques of Barth’s conception of ethical agency, and finds resources within his actualistic ontology to answer some of the varied criticisms.
