Reflection for the Week - January 13

The patron saints of reductionism and polarization in contemporary thought frequently dominate disputes over language, philosophy, theology, science, and their interaction. Let’s move in a different direction in order to create a space for dialogue, mediate one-sided extremes, and offer a hermeneutic of relation and distinction, which depicts a new vision for engaging with these contested issues. In doing so, I’d wager, we’re after something like a perceptive and tension-filled wisdom that goes beyond modernist and postmodernist dead ends and thus offers a valid way ahead.
