Item Description...
A critical appraisal of Nicholas Wolterstorff's account of faith and knowledge in the light of the philosophy of science, and an application of his thought to the practice of Christian scholarship.Andrew Sloane expounds Christian philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff's account of rationality and his understanding of the devising and weighing of theories. Wolterstorff steers a course between the modernist idea of the neutrality and universal power of reason, on the one hand, and the relativism of some postmodern philosophy, on the other. He presents a defensible person-specific but non-relativist criterion of theory choice. The role of control beliefs in scholarship and the place of Christian beliefs in the practice of Christian scholarship are also explored.The book concludes by exploring the implications of these findings for theological scholarship, in particular Old Testament exegesis. The author suggests that Wolterstorff's notion of scholarly practice explains the practice of scholarship and is to be commended to Christian scholars as a cogent and challenging method of devising and appraising theories.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Useful for Christian scholars  Jul 11, 2005
The book offers an overview of Nicholas Wolterstorff's theory of rationality and scholarly practice. It is a published dissertation, and so focuses determinedly on that one topic (and not, for instance, on Wolterstorff's ideas on other topics, such as teaching or art) and sticks to systematic exposition of the concepts without many examples, so it is not a light read. Nevertheless, Wolterstorff's theory is one of the most cogent and important attempts to describe a positive role for belief in theory construction and weighing, and anyone interested in the recent resurgence of interest in the relationship between religion and higher education who has not already examined Wolterstorff's work will find here a lucid and helpful exposition. Even having read much of Wolterstorff's work, I found it helpful to have the themes brought together systematically.
