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. What was I aiming for and how far have I got? In fact, the answer given to these questions decides the direction which people seek to give to their lives. It is not in heaven that you should say, ‘Who will go up for us to heaven, and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?

Yet closer scrutiny shows that even in the philosophical thinking of those who helped drive faith and encicllica further apart there are found at times precious and seminal insights which, if pursued and developed with mind and heart rightly tuned, can lead to the discovery of truth’s way.

The great Pope revisited and developed the First Vatican Council’s teaching on the relationship between faith and reason, showing how philosophical thinking contributes in fundamental ways to faith and theological ehciclica.

To assist our reflection on this point we have one of the most fruitful and important minds in human history, a point of reference for both philosophy and theology: To those wishing to know the truth, if they can look razoh themselves and their own concerns, there is given the possibility of taking full and harmonious possession of their lives, precisely by following the path of truth.

For the reasons suggested here, it has enciclicw to me urgent to re-emphasize with this Encyclical Letter the Church’s intense interest in philosophy—indeed the intimate bond which ties theological work to the philosophical search for truth.

My thoughts turn immediately to the lands of the East, so rich in religious and philosophical traditions of great antiquity. On the contrary, the two modes of knowledge lead to truth in all its enxiclica. The wisdom of the Cross, therefore, breaks free of all cultural limitations which seek to contain it and insists upon an openness to the universality of the truth which it bears.

At the same time, the Church considers philosophy an indispensable help for a deeper understanding of faith and for communicating the truth of the Gospel to those who do not yet know it. The thirst for truth is so rooted in the human heart that to be obliged to ignore it would cast our existence into jeopardy.

Yet personal growth and maturity imply that these same truths can be cast into doubt and evaluated through a process of critical enquiry. Woe is me, one of razpn poor children of Eve, far from God, what did I set out to do and what have I accomplished? There is some truth in these claims which are acknowledged in the teaching of the Council. The preaching of Christ crucified and risen is the reef upon which the link between faith and philosophy can break up, but it is also the reef beyond which the two can set forth upon the boundless ocean of truth.

Those who devote themselves to the study of Sacred Scripture should always remember that the various hermeneutical approaches have their own philosophical underpinnings, which need to be carefully evaluated before they are applied to the sacred texts.

Recalling the teaching of Saint Paul cf. From this starting-point, human reason with its many questions has developed further its yearning to know more and to know it ever more deeply. For the saintly Archbishop of Canterbury the priority of faith is not in competition with the search which is proper to reason.

Indeed, to argue according to rigorous rational criteria is to guarantee that the results attained are universally valid. Consider, for example, the principles of non-contradiction, finality and causality, as well as the concept of the person as a free and intelligent subject, with the capacity to know God, truth and goodness.

Only the sense that they can arrive at an answer leads them to take the first step. Who, for instance, could assess critically the countless scientific findings upon which modern life is based? This is what normally happens in scientific research.

Other modes of latent fideism appear in the scant consideration accorded to speculative theology, and in disdain for the classical philosophy from which the terms of both the understanding of faith and the actual formulation of dogma have been drawn.

Because of its implications for both philosophy and theology, the question of the relationship with cultures calls for particular attention, which cannot however claim to be exhaustive. In the New Testament, human life is much less governed by prescriptions than in the Old Testament.

These serve to lead the search for truth to new depths, enabling the encicluca in its autonomous exploration to penetrate within the mystery by use of reason’s own methods, of which it is rightly jealous.
