Christianisme et philosophie

By Sébastien Morlet

Dans l’Antiquité, christianisme et philosophie se font face comme deux voies d’accès à los angeles vérité : l’une, par le moyen de los angeles foi, l’autre, par l. a. recherche rationnelle. Les rapports du christianisme et de l. a. philosophie sont cependant plus complexes. Les néoplatoniciens accordent une position grandissante aux éléments extra-rationnels et en viennent à ne plus considérer l. a. raison comme los angeles seule voie d’accès au savoir. Inversement, les chrétiens reconnaissent une certaine vérité dans los angeles philosophie et lui accordent un rôle préliminaire dans l’acquisition de los angeles sagesse. Souvent convaincus que l. a. révélation biblique est l. a. resource du savoir grec, les chrétiens présentent leur faith comme los angeles seule « vraie philosophie ». Ce livre retrace les grandes lignes d’une disagreement qui joua un rôle capital dans los angeles formation de l. a. doctrine chrétienne comme dans l. a. transmission de l. a. tradition gréco-romaine. Il amène à réviser certaines idées reçues sur le christianisme et son rapport à l. a. raison.
