Doing Philosophy as a Christian

Dr. Garrett J. DeWeese

What does it mean to be called to the profession of philosophy? What does it mean for the Christian in particular? And how should those called to the profession engage their tasks? Noting that <em>philosophy</em> literally is "the love of wisdom," Garrett J. DeWeese begins with a discussion of <em>wisdom</em> from the Old and New Testaments before addressing the often misunderstood relation between faith and reason. DeWeese then elucidates the fundamental questions of metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and aesthetics, philosophy of mind and philosophy of science, finally making a case for the integration of philosophy and Christian spiritual formation.
