The Love of Wisdom: An Introduction to Philosophy for Theologians

ISBN
9780334043843
From the dawn of Western thought to the present day, The Love of Wisdom tells the story of philosophy as something intensely theological, both in its insights and its wrong turns. The book will be invaluable for any student of theology or intellectual history, and for anyone who wants to see the intellectual cogency of the Christian faith at its best. The intellectual tradition of the Church emerges clearly from this book as one of the glories of the Christian inheritance. Andrew Davison argues that Christian thinkers will be more faithful to Christian teaching, not less, if they pay attention to philosophy. Our thinking is always philosophical, since we cannot think without categories or assumption. Our philosophy may as well, therefore, be good philosophy. By bringing our philosophy out into the open we can bring them under theological judgement.Clear and articulate, this book provides the philosophical background to Christian theology down the ages, and examines the intellectual climate of our own times.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Andrew DavisonPublisher: SCM PressPublished: 09/18/2013ISBN: 9780334043843Pages: 224Weight: 0.84lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.50w x 0.69d
