What makes theology and anthropology go together is the realization that they need one another to widen their scopes in spite of disagreements in their respective fields of scientific researches and faith. Rahner's theology based on transcendence and anthropology offers two benefits. For one, it discards all the impossibilities that the mind dictates. Another, it modifies the biased mode of modern philosophy that recognizes only those that can be proven through observation or experiment. Needless to say, Rahner's theology has its own shortcomings. Indeed, several other inquiries remain unanswered and yet to be explored as men are expected to break the limits of their objective minds and imaginations.
