5.0 out of 5 stars Is a Christian Philosophy possible?, 29 May 2003
Mr. R. J. Hayward (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: A New Critique of Theoretical Thought: The Necessary Presuppositions of Philosophy v. 1 (Collected Works of Herman Dooyeweerd) (Hardcover)
Many would think the very idea of a christian philosophy is absurd. Would not philosophy lose it's very nature, it's treasured autonomy, and so become a mere plaything of theology, or worse still be taken hostage to a narrow apologetics? Dooyeweerd's rich analysis of the dynamic structures of our world guided by the christian confession of the radically non-self-sufficient character of creation (including philosophical thought), empties such suspicions of their foundation. Long before post-modernism challenged notions of pure reason Dooyeweerd showed the inter-dependence of the various modes of human experience including the rational, and argued that a truely open philosophy does not hid its commitments behind metaphysical claims to objectivity and neutrality. This is a truely original work of philosophy and worthy of serious attention (yes critical attention) from philosophers both within and without of the christian tradition.
