Faith, Reason, and the Specter of the Enlightenment: A Nonfoundationalist Reading of John Paul II’s Fides et Ratio
Philosophy and Theology 12 (1):25-31 (2000)
AbstractA nonfoundationalist reading of Fides et Ratio, both in its negative regard for Enlightenment reasoning and its implicit understanding of the philosophical task of justifying belief, enables an appreciation of the encyclical as a particular kind of post-Enlightenment Roman Catholic stance. A nonfoundationalist perspective, understood as a philosophical position on the justification of belief, can be instructive in the encyclical’s articulation of Credo ut intelligam. Fides et Ratio offers a contextualized understanding of justification in its treatment of universality that can only be recognized, affirmed and confessed within the particularity of faith
