Victoria S. Harrison Theism and the Challenge of Twentieth-Century Philosophy
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This paper examines the challenge that philosophers influenced by positivism posed to religion during the twentieth century, and considers how philosophers more sympathetic to theism responded to this challenge. By focusing upon the trajectory of the philosophical challenge to theismin the twentieth century, this paper seeks to highlight the various ways that the relationship between theistic faith and reason was conceived by those debating the credibility of religious belief. The paper concludes that although the conception of reason’s relationship to faith dominant at the end of the twentieth century was more conducive to creative religious thought than was that prevalent at the beginning of the century, it nevertheless generates significant unresolved problems.

Сергей В. Роганов Смерть и предел человека в современной культуре
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Not so long ago phenomenon of death was fundamental dimension of human being for continental philosophy. After Second World War postmodern culture deconstructed the “Subject” and the Age of Enlightenment’s values and the phenomenon of death also. It turned into the language game, metaphor, in other words, moved into the space of texts and linguistic. Now people in developed societies behave as if death does not exist. The main hidden barrier to the investigation of human mortal nature – “shame of death” (F. Aries). People shame of aging and therefore death and avoid them. In the modern world there is a domination of technological immortality’s logic, i.e. aging/death is considered as a fatal mistake of Nature, which may be and must be corrected. Collapse of the Soviet communist system was the accomplished logic of immortality of limit-less man, who encountered inevitability of absolute historical and cultural limit. Unfortunately, phenomenon of death of the Soviet and post-Soviet person remained without serious attention of both Russian and West culture. However, from my point of view, logic of Soviet “mangod”, Soviet ideology and empire’s collapse hold answers on most cardinal issues of modern period of world history. The matter is not the returning to the religious values, but next step to the image of mortal being and, therefore, to the mortal human being, who is aware and demand human limits in practice.

Andre Archie The Unity of Plato’s Minos
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The Minos is a much neglected dialogue. The scholarly attention that has been given to it is unimaginative and general. Our discussion of the Minos remedies these scholarly deficits.We have read the dialogue closely and have concluded, on a textual basis, that Socrates intends an empirical investigation of νόμος insofar as νόμος is the product of tradition and the behavior it prescribes. Our investigation also has been especially sensitive to the dialogue’s etymological sophistication. Besides Plato’s Cratylus, no other dialogue comes close to mirroring the argument explored with its etymological foundations. This observation justifies the seriousness with which we have treated Socrates’ discussion of King Minos. In fact, it is Socrates’ discussion of King Minos that unifies the dialogue as a whole. Our hope is that the treatment contained in these pages of the Minos contributes to a scholarly reevaluation of this profound and complex dialogue.

Jean-Michel Charrue Origène élève d’Ammonius
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Was Origen pupil of Ammonius or not? The transcendence, manifold unity of Christ, inspired by the Salomon’s Wisdom marked the nearness wirh a fragment of this one. But it is about freedom, that we can see a common inspiration. It is also, about man, soul and body, the first of divine nature, as is it quoted in the text. Finally Providence will have the same role of unity that will be found until Proclus, while the prescience of God excludes, as Plotinus any fatalism. The whole, and the nearness of method make this position, probable.

Spyridoula Athanasopoulou-Kypriou Gregory of Nyssa’s Anagogical Method of Interpretation and the Personal Realization of the Sacramentality of all Language
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In this paper, I argue that the implications of Gregory of Nyssa’s anagogical method of interpretation are of paramount importance for the theological appreciation of contemporary literature. For his emphasis on the reader’s disposition is an indication that in an orthodox Christian context, all language may correspond anagogically to God and lift people up to Him, provided people first recognize language’s redemption in Christ, and, then, actualize its sacramentality in their liturgical act of reading and through the grace of the Holy Spirit.

Βασίλειος Ἀθ. Τσίγκος Ἡ θέση τοῦ πατριάρχου Ἱεροσολύμων καί τοῦ “πατριάρχου τῆς Δύσεως” στήν Καθολική Ἐκκλησία καί ἡ ἐκκλησιολογία τῆς “κοινωνίας”στήν ἐπιστολογραφία τοῦ ἁγίου Θεοδώρου τοῦ Στουδίτου

In the first part of this study we deal with the relation of Saint Τheodore the Studite to the cities of Thessaloniki and Jerusalem. Having as our main source his massive epistolography, we discuss his views on the place of the patriarch of Jerusalem Thomas and the pope of Rome in the Church. Thomas is the “first” (primus) within the “pentarchy” of the patriarchs, in the so called “five-headed body of the Church” (πεντακόρυφον ἐκκλησιαστικόν σῶμα), where the pope belongs as well. According to Theodore all the patriarchs are “equal”, in the “pentarchy”, the ecclesiological form of the Church’s life of the first millenium. Among them the pope is the first in “order and honour” for being the leader of the “Romaic Church”, “the patriarch of the West”. This title is the traditional one among others, which the pope uses ever since. However, its recent omission from the last edition (2006) of the “Annuario Pontificio”, puts more obstacles to the constant efforts for mutual understanding and sincere and fruitful theological dialogue between the Orthodox and the Roman-Catholic Church. The second part of the study is related to the ecclesiology of “communion” and we make some comments on this central principle of theology. The concept of “communion” should apply to all the ecclesial institutions and it could greatly contribute, in a very positive and constructive way, to the discussions of the problem about the office of “primus” and the way of exercising it in the Catholic Church, with specific reference to the “primacy” of bishop of Rome, in terms of the ecumenical movement and the ecclesial rapprochement. The concept of “communion” may even place the stumbling block of the ecclesial unity, i.e. the “office” of the pope, in the traditional framework, which is the paradigm of the “pentarchy of the patriarchs”. In other words, the way of Church’s life during the first ten centuries. In the last section we briefly discuss the rebeginning of the second phase of the Official Theological Dialogue between the Roman-Catholic and the Orthodox Church (Belgrade 18-25 September 2006), the official visit of pope Benedict 16th to Constantinople (30 November 2006) and the official visit of archbishop of Athens and all Greece Christodoulos to Rome (14 December 2006). These very important events it is hoped that will push forward the essential progress of this dialogue, which some time in the future may lead the two Churches to the full “communion” of faith and sacramental life.
