The Primeval Man according to Philo of Alexandria

Contributor

Philon von Alexandrien war, infolge seiner Abstammung und Erziehung, fest an die griechische Philosophie gebunden. Er war unzertrennlich zugleich Philosoph und Theolog, genauer gesagt ein Religionsphilosoph. Er hielt die Thora für eine absolute Autorität. Mit seiner allegorischen Schriftauslegung wollte er beweisen, daß die heiligen Schriften nicht nur eine zuverlässige Fundgrube der göttlichen Wahrheiten, sondern zugleich auch der Philosphie darstellen.

The Timely Character of Dialogue

Contributor

This paper discusses the necessity of dialogue about the topic of creation among theology, philosophy and natural sciences. I argue that philosophy has a bridge-building role between theology and natural sciences. I aim to show why the mediation of philosophy cannot be neglected, and why a holistic approach in such an important theme as creation is necessary. I shall also invoke the ideas of László Ravasz (1882–1975) and point out that the synthesis which he argued for in his scientific papers is still useful today.

The Evolution of the Created World According to Jürgen Moltmann

Contributor

Jürgen Moltmann unfolds the creative dialogue of theology and natural sciences along the subjects of creation and evolution. The earlier mechanistic and deterministic worldview collapsed as a result of the scientific discoveries of the 20th century. Moltmann observes a surprising parallel between the scientific theory on the one hand, and the Christian teaching about creation eschatologically oriented towards the future of God, on the other.
