De methodo theologiae: part 1 of chapter 2, The First Problematic
Archival Number: A426b
Author: Lonergan, B.
The first problematic has to do with theology as a science. Its roots are found in the radical antitheses of worlds: sacred and profane, outer and inner, perceptible and intelligible. All science is directly concerned with the intelligible world, and since religion has to do mainly with the sacred and the inner but also the visible world, does theology have anything to contribute to religion? Is it valuable, useful? Again, if theology is a scientific discipline, what sort of a science is it? Should it aspire to the classical Greek ideal of science or should it be like the modern sciences, and so empirical and dealing with probabilities?
