Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the religious thoughts and beliefs of certain philosophers. It does not offer a systematic theory of the philosophers' basic definitions and their views on the connections between human life, reason, faith, philosophy and theology, but it invites the readers to reflect on how these philosophers tried to make sense of human destiny. This book concludes that most of the philosophers maintained that a human being is not only a rational and free being but also a praying one.
