Paul Moser, Graham Oppy, and the Philosophical Dignity of Christian Faith

by Roberto Di Ceglie

This paper offers two main reflections.

First, I intend to highlight that (and why) the philosopher, when focuses on reality, may treat his object from a merely intellectual point of view, hoping to find pro et contra reasons; but when he focuses on God as well as on every other thing in relation to God, he needs to develop his arguments within a loving relationship with the Lord.

Secondly, it is my intention to treat one more question raised by Graham Oppy’s objections to Moser: the idea that philosophy must start only from what everybody knows. I intend to show that, in the light of such an idea, Christian philosophy seems to be paradoxically less inconsistent than philosophy alone.
