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.
