John Scotus Erigena held that philosophy and religion were really the same, the functions of philosophy being to divide, define, demonstrate, and analyse. That which cannot be known does not exist for us. Nature is the designation of the totality of things, ranging from the purely creative but uncreated (that is, God) through the creative and created (the Logos or the realm of types of things), to the realm of phenomena which are created but do not create anything. Beyond this is the uncreated which is God as the end to which all things finally return. (Are you still with us?)
He wrote a commentary on the epistle to the Romans. In this commentary Barth did not follow historical-critical questions about the Bible, which he considered to be a human attempt to bring the Word of God under our control. Instead of it, he tried to understand what the book of Romans says. Through study of the teaching of St. Paul in the Epistle to the Romans he struggled to clarify the relation between justification and social righteousness which governed all he had to say in later life about the relation of the Gospel to the power of the state and the oppression of the poor. His first major works established his position as a notable theologian with a new message about the sheer Goodness of God and the unlimited range of his grace.
Sartre himself chose Marxism” (Craig). Humans have feelings and emotions that are bestowed by God that differ us from other creatures and without God there would definitely be no purpose in life. Now talking about theology that is the philosophy of God, my faith is crystal clear because I have a very firm belief when it comes to the sovereignty and greatness of God. He is the ultimate power but maybe I couldn’t justify that well yet because I couldn’t really find any valid and strong evidence of His existence that could make those who deny speechless therefore I believe I wasn’t quite successful. My worldview has now become an essential
When faced with an ethical dilemma, many people, look to their faith in God for guidance. It is quite understandable that the defined moral characteristics that religion provides helps individuals see through the uncertainty of life. The great philosopher, Baruch Spinoza, was a fervent believer of the almighty, and even argued that God predestined everything that happens to you. However, he encouraged his readers to not blindly worship the text. Instead, he advocated for the use of philosophical thinking to decipher God’s meaning.
Sartre and de Beauvoir dependably read each other 's work. Wrangle about proceeds about the degree to which they impacted each other in their existentialist works, for example, Sartre 's Being and Nothingness and de Beauvoir 's She Came to Stay. In any case, late investigations of de Beauvoir 's work concentrate on impacts other than Sartre, including Hegel and Leibniz. The Neo-Hegelian recovery drove by Alexandre Kojeve and Jean Hyppolite in the 1930s propelled an entire era of French scholars, including Beauvoir and Sartre, to find Hegel 's Phenomenology of Spirit. Personal
As such the following is a brief explanation of the Sartrean standing, within Being and Nothingness. Sarte saw that the Other is necessary to one 's identifying as an Individual, and so the sense of the Other is seen as prior to one 's sense of selves. Sartre 's understanding of the Other is two fold, where firstly the Individual views the Other as an object, and secondly where the Individual understands the Other as a
Rather, he is emphasizing that divine illumination is needed. For God do cooperate with human activity even in the mind. He also asserted that the intellect knows singular things in themselves and directly and rejected the Thomist Doctrine of the intellect. Even the theory of the soul by St. Thomas, he opposed it. He said that the soul needs a stimulus from the bodily senses because through it one can learn things even its own existence.
In the first sentence of essay, Kant answers the question: “Enlightenment is the man’s emergence from his self-incurred immaturity.” He says that immaturity is from the lack of courage to use one’s intellect, reason & wisdom without the guidance of another. The motto of the enlightenment is “Sapere aude” (Dare to know! ), which means, “Have the courage to use your own thoughts and understanding”. In the essay, he emphasizes on the need for people to use their own powers of understanding and reasoning instead of depending on others or on an external system to provide it to them. This essay is essentially a plea for the vital importance of freedom of speech, thought, and debate.
Chapter 4 The Metaphysical Notion of Person in St. Thomas Aquinas “God created humankind in His own image” (Genesis 1:26) In chapter two of this research, the researcher tried to explore St. Thomas Aquinas’ notion of participation giving emphasis on the third mode of participation where an effect is said to participate in its cause.

In chapter three, the researcher tried to explore the concept of euthanasia with specific discussions about active euthanasia and the different arguments in the contemporary period therein. This is done so as to give emphasis on the central problem that the researcher saw in this academic pursuit.
Nietzche´s Übermensch or Superman is possibly one of the most important philosophical concepts in regard to human psychology but, in order to even come close to comprehending the concept one must first understand the fundamental components of the broader philosophical concept of Existentialism. Existentialism is the term applied to the body of work of late 19th and early 20th century philosophers, starting from the danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard who without using the term proposed that “an individual not bound by society or religion is solely responsible for giving a meaning to life and living it passionately and sincerely or authentically”. This followed by a plethora of philosophers who adopted this idea and givng it further meaning
