This is why the Church has always considered the rnciclica of entrusting oneself to God to be a moment of fundamental decision which engages the whole person.

Everyday life shows how concerned each of us is to discover for ourselves, beyond mere encicliica, how things really are. To reject this heritage would be to deny the providential plan of God who guides his Church down the paths of time and history.

This revealed truth is set within our history as an anticipation of that ultimate and definitive vision of God which is reserved for those who believe in him and seek him with a sincere heart.

Moreover, as philosophical learning has developed, different schools of thought have emerged. The fool thinks that fidrs knows many things, but really he is incapable of fixing his gaze on the things that truly matter.

It is the one and the same God who establishes and guarantees the intelligibility and reasonableness of the natural order of things upon which scientists confidently depend, 29 and who reveals himself as the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The elitism which had characterized the ancients’ search for truth was clearly abandoned. This in turn has obscured the true dignity of reason, which is no longer equipped to know the truth and to seek the absolute.

Hence enciclicaa see among the men and women of our time, and not just in some philosophers, attitudes of widespread distrust of the human being’s great capacity for knowledge. Step by step, then, we are assembling the terms of the question. For it is undeniable that this time of rapid and complex change can leave especially the younger generation, to whom the future belongs and on whom it depends, with a sense that they have no valid points of reference.


The truth of these values is to be found not by turning in on oneself but by opening oneself to apprehend that truth even at levels which transcend the person.

On a number of occasions, the Second Vatican Fidew stressed the positive value of scientific research for a deeper knowledge of the mystery of the human being. The fruitfulness of this relationship is confirmed by the experience of great Christian encciclica who also distinguished themselves as great philosophers, bequeathing to us writings of such high speculative value as to warrant comparison with the masters of ancient philosophy.

Such insights are found, for instance, in penetrating analyses of perception and experience, of the imaginary and the unconscious, of personhood and intersubjectivity, of freedom and values, of time and history.

Further still, some of these, sensing the opportunities of technological progress, seem to succumb not only to a market-based logic, but also to the temptation of a quasi-divine power over nature and even over the human being. History therefore becomes the arena where we see what God does for humanity.

The theme of death as well can ratko for all thinkers an incisive appeal to seek within themselves the true meaning of their own life. Sure of her competence as the bearer of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Church reaffirms the need to reflect upon truth.

It should also be borne in mind that the role of philosophy itself has changed in modern culture. He sought truth wherever it might be found and gave consummate demonstration of its universality.

Fides et Ratio (14 September ) | John Paul II

At first sight, personal existence may seem completely meaningless. Such a truth—vital and necessary as it is for life—is attained not only by way of reason but also through trusting acquiescence to other persons who can guarantee the authenticity and certainty of the truth itself. How are we to explain these dynamics? It is at this point, though, that reason can learn where its path will lead in the end: Another of the many consequences of this separation was an ever deeper mistrust with regard to reason itself.


It is not just a question of theological discourse using this or that concept or element of a philosophical construct; what matters most is that the believer’s reason use its powers of reflection in the search for truth which moves from the word of God towards a better understanding of it.

Yet the study of traditional ways must go hand in hand with philosophical enquiry, an enquiry which will allow the positive traits of popular wisdom to emerge and forge the necessary link with the proclamation of the Gospel. For as I went through the city and looked carefully at the objects of your worship, I found among them an altar with the inscription, ‘To an unknown god’.

Philosophy contributes specifically to theology in preparing for a correct auditus fidei with its study of the structure of knowledge and personal communication, especially the various forms and functions of language.

First, then, let us consider the links between faith and philosophy in the course of history.

Otherwise there would be no guarantee that it would remain oriented to truth and that it was moving towards truth by way of a process governed by reason. Yet the Gospel and the Apostolic writings still set forth both general principles of Christian conduct and specific teachings and precepts.

A pioneer of positive engagement with philosophical thinking—albeit with cautious discernment—was Saint Justin. One may define the human being, therefore, as the one who seeks the truth. If human beings with their intelligence fail encicica recognize God as Creator of all, it is not because they lack the means to do so, but because their free will and their sinfulness place an impediment in the way.
