In this article I refer to Paul Tillich’s conception of a theology of culture, namely, to his reflection on the place attributed to religion in the space of man’s cultural endeavours. Tillich ultimately defines religion as a dimension of all forms of man’s spiritual (cultural) activity, the aspect/dimension that he calls depth and which he combines with the attitude of ultimate concern. My aim is to present ultimate concern as a function of one’s linguistic activity. Then, on the example of texts taken from 19th- and 20th-century philosophy and literature (Soren Kierkegaard, John Henry Newman, G.K. Chesterton, Ronald Knox, and Rosi Braidotti), I discuss less obvious forms of ultimate concern in speech or its absence.
