by Tony Kim (Author)
©2012 Monographs VIII, 150 Pages
Series: American University Studies , Volume 318

Summary

In Reasonableness of Faith Tony Kim gives an account of the nature of the relationship between faith and reason through a study of Søren Kierkegaard’s Philosophical Fragments, which was published under the pseudonym Johannes Climacus. The relationship between faith and reason is problematized by the fact that these ideas essentially occupy different realms of human thought. Kim argues that Climacus contends that there is a historical relation between God and human beings.
