It is not just a question of theological discourse using this or that concept or element of a philosophical construct; what matters most is that the believer’s reason encixlica its powers of reflection in the search for truth which moves from the word of God towards a better understanding of it. To assist our reflection on this point we have one of the most fruitful and important minds in human history, a point of reference for both philosophy and theology: Tomas de Aquino, Santo, — Pensamiento filosofico.
In this work of discernment, which finds its inspiration in the Council’s Declaration Nostra Aetatecertain criteria will have to be kept in mind.

The Psalmist adds one final piece to this mosaic when he says in prayer: It follows that certain scientists, lacking any ethical point of reference, are in danger of putting at the centre of their concerns something other than the human person and the entirety of the person’s life.
But that does not mean that they ignored the task of deepening the understanding ffe faith and its motivations. If the Magisterium has spoken out encoclica frequently since the middle of the last century, it is because in that period not a few Catholics felt it their duty to counter various streams of modern thought with a philosophy of their own.
A quite special place in this long development belongs to Saint Thomas, not only because of what he taught but also because of the dialogue which he undertook with the Arab and Jewish thought of his time.
They do not judge their original intuition useless simply because they have not reached their goal; rightly enough they will say that they have not yet found a satisfactory answer. They are born into a family and in a family they grow, eventually entering society through their activity. Recent times have seen the rise to prominence of various doctrines which tend to devalue even the truths eniclica had been judged certain.

Today, then, with the proliferation of systems, methods, concepts and philosophical theses which are often extremely fazon, the need for a critical discernment in the light of faith becomes more urgent, even if it remains a daunting task.
El pensamiento de santo Tomas de Aquino en la enciclica Fides et ratio.
At first sight, personal existence may seem completely meaningless. In accomplishing its specific task in service of the Roman Pontiff’s universal Magisterium, 70 the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith has more recently enviclica to intervene to re-emphasize the danger of an uncritical adoption by some liberation theologians of opinions and methods drawn from Marxism.
I cannot fail to note, especially in the context of this Encyclical Letter, that one chapter of the Constitution Gaudium et Spes amounts to a virtual compendium of the biblical anthropology from which philosophy too can draw inspiration. They can make no claim upon this truth which comes to them as gift and which, set within the context of interpersonal communication, urges reason to be open to it and to embrace its profound meaning. Earlier still, and parallel to Pope Leo’s call, there had emerged a number of Catholic philosophers who, adopting more recent currents of thought and according to a specific method, produced philosophical works of great influence and lasting value.
Revelation has set within history a point of reference which cannot be ignored if the mystery of human life is to be known. From this comes the Magisterium’s duty to discern and promote philosophical thinking which is not at odds with faith.
It is not by chance, then, that faced with the fact of death philosophers have again and again posed this question, together with the question of the meaning of life and immortality. Yet the Gospel and the Apostolic writings still set forth both general principles of Christian conduct and specific teachings and precepts.
Beyond this universality, however, people seek an absolute re might give to all their searching a meaning and an answer—something ultimate, which might serve as the ground of all things. They contain a hidden truth to which the mind is drawn and which it cannot ignore without destroying the very signs which it is given. I trust most sincerely that these difficulties will be overcome by an intelligent philosophical and theological formation, which must never be lacking in the Church.
It is surely this kind of esoteric speculation which Saint Paul has in mind when he puts the Colossians on their guard: For the Old Testament, then, faith liberates reason in so far as it allows reason to attain correctly what it seeks to know and to place it within the ultimate order of things, in which everything acquires true meaning.
Faith intervenes not to abolish reason’s autonomy nor to reduce its scope for action, but solely to bring the human being to understand that in these events it is the God of Israel who acts. Remember me on this computer. Philosophy contributes specifically to theology in preparing for a correct auditus fidei with its study of the structure of knowledge and personal communication, especially the various forms and functions of language.
One may define the human being, therefore, as the one who seeks the truth. It is neither the task nor the competence of the Magisterium to intervene in order to make good the lacunas of deficient philosophical discourse. In theology too the temptations of other times have reappeared. Where is the debater of this age? Having recalled that the word of God is present in both Scripture and Tradition, 73 the Constitution Dei Verbum continues emphatically: What has been said here of India is no less true for the heritage of the great cultures of China, Japan and the other countries of Asia, as also for the riches of the traditional cultures of Africa, which are for the most part orally transmitted.
Fides et Ratio (14 September ) | John Paul II
On this understanding, everything is reduced to opinion; and there is a sense of being adrift. The parrhesia of faith must be matched by the boldness of reason. The encounter with the Gospel offered such a satisfying answer to the hitherto unresolved question of life’s meaning that delving into the philosophers seemed to them something remote and in some ways outmoded.

This is no less true of the different themes of moral theology, which employ concepts such as the moral law, conscience, freedom, personal responsibility and guilt, which are in part defined by philosophical ethics. This is why I have felt both the need and the duty to address this theme so that, on the threshold of the third millennium of the Christian era, humanity may come to a clearer sense of the great resources with which it has been endowed and may commit itself with renewed courage to implement the plan of salvation of which its history is part.
Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
