Show Summary Details


This chapter challenges the traditional conception of the way in which philosophy and theology are and should be related. It examines these disciplines insofar as they are practiced by Christians and Catholics. It proposes a different conception of the theology-philosophy relation that presupposes not only competence in both disciplines but demands that Christians who practice these disciplines have a genuine emotional and practical experience of their faith, and that they be aware of this experience while reflecting on their faith.

Keywords: philosophy; theology; Christians; Catholics; faith; religious philosophy
