3. Koncepcje Boga

dr Stefan Klemczak

Kurs ma na celu namysł nad szeregiem problemów znaczących z punktu widzenia filozofii religii. Jakie perspektywy zostają wyznaczone przez myślenie zrywające z naturalizmem? Czy kierunek ten łączy wyłącznie negatywny stosunek do myślenia Boga w horyzoncie różnicy teologicznej, czy też coś więcej? Czy „nowe" myślenie możliwe jest w obrębie tradycji chrześcijańskiej, czy też nosi w sobie niechrześcijański wymiar? Kurs stanowi próbę udzielenia na te pytania odpowiedzi, przeanalizowania tych koncepcji, które nie tyle zmagają się z problemem istnienia Boga, ile raczej stanowią na¬mysł nad możliwością Jego „pomyślenia".
