Models of Man: A Phenomenological Critique of Some Paradigms in the Human Sciences

Moral Relativism claims that there is no such thing as right or wrong. Each PERSON, in their effort to achieve oneness, must travel their own path and make their own decisions. And those decisions are never wrong, provided they�re not wrong in that person�s own mind. As Christians, we recognize the fallacy of that thinking. We know that man is finite and imperfect. Only through faith in an eternal and omnipotent God may we be saved from our sin Context Of Self: Phenomenological Inquiry (Series In Continental Thought). It had fueled the bloody Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) and the English Civil War (1642-1651). The Enlightenment rejected this religious dogmatism. The intellectual leaders of the Enlightenment regarded themselves as a courageous elite who would lead the world into progress from a long period of doubtful tradition and ecclesiastical tyranny. They reduced religion to those essentials which could only be "rationally" defended, i.e., certain basic moral principles and a few universally held beliefs about God Hidden Champions of the Twenty-First Century.

It is not really clear where the lines between Unitarianism, Arianism (belief in Jesus as a pre-existent divine being, but not as God) and English Deism should be drawn.

The philosopher and rabbinical scholar Hasdai Crescas (1340-1410) refuted the Aristotelian premises of Maimonides. Indeed, he opposed all attempts to identify the principles of Judaism with those of Greek philosophy. For him man is a spiritual being, and hence his soul departs the body after death and survives. In contrast to Maimonides and followers of Aristotle, Crescas taught that love and rational knowledge are the highest good and, as such, that it is the love between man and God that determines the immortality of the soul The Nature of Rationality. 1993..

The Renaissance had begun only very gradually, over many centuries, as the Moors disseminated works from Ancient Greece and Rome and the Middle East through Spain and Sicily, and as European travelers in the Arab world smuggled them out and into the monasteries throughout Italy and beyond.

Its essence was summed up by critic and teacher Alain Locke in 1926 when he declared that through art, “Negro life is seizing its first chances for group expression and self determination.” Harlem became the center of a “spiritual coming of age” in which Locke’s “New Negro” transformed “social disillusionment to race pride.” Chiefly literary, the Renaissance included the visual arts but excluded jazz, despite its parallel emergence as a black art form Love, An Inner Connection, Based on Principles Drawn from the I Ching.

These attitudes took shape in concord with a sense of personal autonomy that first was evident in Petrarch and later came to characterize humanism as a whole. An intelligence capable of critical scrutiny and self-inquiry was by definition a free intelligence; the intellectual virtue that could analyze experience was an integral part of that more extensive virtue that could, according to many humanists, go far in conquering fortune Solitude: A Philosophical Encounter.
