Scientific Study from the year 2007 in the subject Philosophy - Miscellaneous, grade: "-", 110 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: An introductory chapter loads the scales in favour of an idealist approach in quasi-Quinean
sense, in that being is called in question, as it is throughout the book. After a chapter revising
the best expositions of faith as a possibly rational attitude the Christian discovery or intuition
of intra-divine events or processes, held compatible with divine infinity and immutability, is
treated under the rubric of a Trinitarian philosophy. This leads to analysis of notions of being
(identity in difference) and, above all, of creation, viewing this as freed from the historic
dualism which has contradicted the necessary infinity of the first principle. Creation is not
thereby denied but seen as truly a constituent of the divine life. The picture is thus monistic,
which is to say scientific as presenting a holistic system or way of seeing things absolutely or
beyond appearance merely.
The consequences for human metaphysical and moral nature are rigorously drawn, freed from
all anthropomorphisms so as better to illuminate the insights of religion and philosophy. The
relevance for contemporary movements from palaeontology to Church ecumenism is brought
out, while a concluding epilogue attempts to shed light on the vexed debate on Europe in
relation to the Christian inheritance. Other concluding chapters treat of both sacramental
religion and of dialectic as the method of reason, whether in theology or in the world. For the
world without the reason is not an object of thought, any more than you can wash the fur
without wetting it, in G. Frege’s words.
