Religiöser Glaube und reflexive Gotteserkenntnis
Über den Anspruch der reflexiven Gotteserkenntnis auf Wissenschaftlichkeit

Although dominated by scientific and technical methodologies, contemporary philosophy and science remain essential aids for deepening our understanding of faith. Knowledge of the empirical sciences, however, must be complemented by a meta-science that goes beyond phenomenalism. Moreover, I argue that atheistic and agnostic views fail to provide a sufficient basis for the justification of morality.
