Philosophie in Luzern


Ferber, Rafael (2002). Philosophie in Luzern. Schweizerische Kirchenzeitung:606-609.

Abstract

The article starts with that which is common to both philosophy and theology, namely that they both give reasons. Philosophy gives reasons about fundamental concepts in general, whereas theology gives reasons about special concepts such as creation, trinity, incarnation, atonement, grace and redemption. Philosophy and theology differ in their relation to authority. For philosophy, the only authority is the arguments; (Catholic) theology accepts in addition to arguments, the authority of the Bible and the authority of tradition represented in the magisterium of the Catholic Church. An argument belongs now to theology if one of its premisses is founded in the biblical revelation or in the magisterium. An argument belongs to philosophy when none of its premises can be deduced from the biblical revelation or the magisterium. The article gives a short discussion of the difficult relation between theology and philosophy that oscillated between fideism and rationalism and concludes with a short overview on the relationship in Lucerne.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
