Be the first to review this encilcica Amazon Best Sellers Rank: The capacity to search for truth and to pose questions itself implies the rudiments of a response.

El pensamiento de santo Tomas de Aquino en la enciclica Fides et ratio.

Some representatives of idealism sought in various ways to transform faith and its contents, even the mystery of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, into dialectical structures which could be grasped by reason. Making his own the thought of Greek philosophy, to which he seems to refer in the context, the author affirms that, in reasoning about nature, the human being can rise to God: They change and advance because people meet in new ways and share with each other their ways of life.

While, on the one hand, razonn thinking has succeeded in coming closer to the reality of human life and its forms of expression, it has also tended to pursue issues—existential, hermeneutical fnciclica linguistic—which ignore the radical question of the truth about personal existence, about being encilcica about God.

At this point, the Magisterium of the Church was obliged to be vigilant lest these philosophies developed in ways which were themselves erroneous and negative. We see here philosophy’s valid aspiration to be an autonomous enterprise, obeying its own rules and employing the powers of reason alone.


With a false encicilca, people rest content with partial and provisional truths, no longer ve to ask radical questions about the meaning and ultimate foundation of human, personal and social existence. Enciclic human beings with their intelligence fail to recognize God as Creator of all, it is not because they lack the enciclic to do so, but because their free will and their sinfulness place an impediment in the way. Following Saint Paul, other writers of the early centuries, especially Saint Irenaeus and Tertullian, sound the alarm when confronted with a cultural perspective which sought to subordinate the truth of Revelation to the interpretation of the philosophers.


It is at this point, though, that reason can learn where its path will lead in the end: Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal. In the first chapter of his Letter to the Romans, Saint Paul helps us to appreciate better the depth of insight of the Wisdom literature’s reflection.

They fully welcomed reason which was open to the absolute, and they enicclica it with the richness drawn from Revelation. Although he made much of the supernatural character of faith, the Angelic Doctor did not overlook the importance of its reasonableness; indeed he was able to plumb the depths and explain the meaning of this reasonableness. Although seriously handicapped by the inherent weakness of human reason, this aspiration should be supported and strengthened.

Fides et Ratio (14 September ) | John Paul II

Faced with the various philosophies, the Fathers were not afraid to acknowledge those elements in them that were consonant with Revelation and those that were not. Tomas de Aquino, Santo, — Pensamiento filosofico. The truth comes initially to the human being as a question: The true key-point, which challenges every philosophy, is Jesus Christ’s death on the Cross.

This in turn has obscured the true dignity of reason, which is no longer equipped to know the truth and to seek the absolute.

This has given rise to different forms of agnosticism and relativism which have led philosophical research to lose its way in the shifting sands of widespread scepticism. On the basis of these broad considerations, we must now explore more directly the relationship between revealed truth and philosophy.

Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. The truths of philosophy, it should be said, are not restricted only to the sometimes ephemeral teachings of professional philosophers. Every people has its own native and seminal wisdom which, as a true cultural treasure, tends to find voice and develop in forms which are genuinely philosophical.


The search for truth, of course, is not always so transparent nor does it always produce such results. The Second Vatican Council, for its part, offers a rich and fruitful teaching concerning philosophy.

It is here that we see the originality of what the Fathers accomplished. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?


I cannot fail to note with surprise and displeasure that this lack of interest in the study of philosophy is shared by not a few theologians. This unity of truth, natural and revealed, is embodied in a living and personal way in Christ, as the Apostle reminds us: In philosophical terms, we could say that this important Pauline text affirms the human capacity for metaphysical enquiry.

As they broadened their view to include universal principles, they no longer rested enciclics with the ancient myths, but wanted to provide a rational foundation for their belief in the divinity. This plan of Revelation is realized by deeds and words having an inner unity: The desire for knowledge is so great and it works in such a way that the human heart, despite its experience of insurmountable limitation, yearns for the infinite riches which lie beyond, knowing that there is to be found the satisfying answer to every question as yet unanswered.

When scientists, following their intuition, set out in search of the logical and verifiable explanation of a phenomenon, they are confident from the first that they will find an answer, and they enicclica not give up in the face of setbacks.
