A Not Uncritical Harmony
John Paul II's encyclical Fides et Ratio reiterates in a new and fresh way the harmony of faith and reason. The dominant tradition of Catholic thought is
one that sees this harmony, but the tradition is not uncritical. Throughout the history of the Church, there have been thinkers wary of reason. The thought
of Karol Wojtyla, both before and during his papacy, has looked to a focus on the human person as a way to reconcile faith and reason.
