Faith and Reason

June 22, 2021-June 24, 2021

In the Lutheran Tradition, faith and reason are often opposed to each other. Man cannot believe out of his own strength or reason. But is there not an ultimate harmony between faith and reason? Might it even be that faith has good reason(s) to believe? We will discuss what we mean by “faith” and “reason” and how their relationship has been described in the past. We will look at some examples where the discussion becomes concrete: is naturalism reasonable or is a theistic worldview reasonable; the relationship of science and theology and of theology and history; and the questions of reason in ethical discussions.
