The Negative and Positive Task of Reason in Relation to Religious Attitudes

  • Reiner Wimmer
Part of the Studies in Philosophy and Religion book series (STPAR, volume 19)


This paper consists of two parts. In the first part I try to establish three distinctions and an epistemological as well as an anthropological thesis; in the second part these distinctions and both theses are further commented upon and illustrated by reference to certain religious practices, experiences, and traditions.
