Summary
This volume assumes that skepticism about reason actually opened up new ways of doing and seeing philosophy. Philosophers, theologians, and historians assess the paradox and achievements of philosophy in the Lutheran vein. In their exploration in the history of ideas, they not only probe the roots and branches of Luther's own ambivalence toward philosophy, they also draw connections between his revolutionary theology and the development of European continental philosophy -- Publisher description
