Published by: Catholic University of America Press. Fides et ratio is destined to be seen as the intellectual capstone of this most academic of popes. It is that rare text that will engage faculty across the country in fruitful discussion-not just arguments. Its importance for Catholic higher education, however, has as yet been under-recognized.

David Foster discusses the implications of "Fides et ratio" for Catholic universities. Michael Sweeney and Timothy Quinn treat medieval philosophy and modern philosophy respectively. Finally Cardinal Dulles considers the Church pronouncements on faith and reason from Vatican I to John Paul II.

David Ruel Foster; Joseph W Koterski. Only 1 left! Book Format: Paperback. 9780813213026 Publishers Weekly,In 1998, Pope John Paul II issued his thirteenth encyclical, "Fides et ratio," in which he challenged the Enlightenment supposition that faith and reason must follow separate trajectories. Instead, the pope proposed that these divergent epistemological categories constitute the "two wings" of Catholic thought, upholding the Church and its teachings. Would that Galileo could see this da.

John Paul's choice to yoke faith and reason together in an encyclical on the twin sources of knowledge caught the world's attention. By stressing 'the two wings' of Catholic thought, the pope captures in the lively image of a soaring bird the same point that theologians like von Balthasar communicate by calling truth symphonic. The beauty of this symphony, like the flight of the bird, is even better appreciated when one has studied the component parts. Knowing the various components only increases our wonder when we hear the music or see the bird take flight. The purpose of this volume is to deepen the appreciation for the stereophonic approach to truth that the Holy Father recommends.

The essays are in three sections: (1) doctrinal themes, (2) contemporary implications, and (3) historical aspects. In the first, Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., discusses the twentieth-century answers to a question that has long haunted Christians who felt the attraction of pagan philosophy: Can philosophy be Christian? Prudence Allen, R.S.M., and Joseph Koterski, S.J., then treat two philosophical topics that have been the most affected by centuries of contact with the Christian faith: the philosophy of the person and metaphysics. David Meconi, S.J., reflects on the Marian framework that is so typical of Pope John Paul II's thought.

In the second section, Bishop Allen Vigneron considers the significance of this encyclical for Catholic intellectual life today. David Foster discusses the implications of Fides et ratio for Catholic universities.

In the final section, Koterski reviews the importance of biblical wisdom literature for the encyclical. Michael Sweeney and Timothy Quinn treat medieval philosophy and modern philosophy respectively. Finally Cardinal Dulles considers the Church pronouncements on faith and reason from Vatican I to John Paul II.

David Ruel Foster is Associate Professor of Philosophy in the School of Theology at Seton Hall University. Joseph W. Koterski, S.J., is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Fordham University. He is also editor of International Philosophical Quarterly.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

"The real contribution of The Two Wings of Catholic Thought is to convey very effectively―better than the encyclical itself does―just why Fides et Ratio ultimately matters inside the Church and for important issues in wider culture."―Joseph M. Incandela, Catholic Education

"There are several remarkable things about this anthology. First, and best of all, it creates a thirst to go to the source, to read the actual encyclical. It stirs up a desire to go back to its depths and clarity of vision. Second, it is a remarkable resource. If a criterion of a successful theory or idea is its fruitfulness, this book would prove the encyclical's worthiness beyond doubt. The seeds of insight in the encyclical blossom beautifully here. Here we find a treasure chest of essays on the relation of faith to reason."―Gregory Kerr, Ph.D., The Maritain Notebook

"Professors and students in programs that study philosophy and theology together could use this book with profit." ― William L. Portier, The Thomist

The digital download product described for sale,
 The Two Wings of Catholic Thought: Essays on Fides et ratio.(Book Review): An article from: Theological Studies , for which I paid $5.95,
is not what I received. (It is not what was provided to me for digital download).

Here's why I say it is not as advertised: Under the product's Editorial Reviews section, in
the Product Description paragraph, the product is described as "an article", and "The length of the article is 2750 words. The page length is shown above [actually, it was shown below, not above] is based on a
typical 300-word page." Elsewher, under "Product Details", the product's line for "Digital" says it is "Digital: 10 pages".

So what was available for download after I paid my $5.95? It was slightly more than 1 page of review, little more than a product description, or little more than the Editorial Review often provided for a book's product web page, actually. With half inch margins, and shrinking to 96%
of full size, it printed out on a single page. I felt disappointed, even cheated. Now I have to to the trouble of contacting someone at Amazon and try to get a refund or a credit, or let it go and feel
negative about it. So beware. Amazon needs to fix their product
description page for this, or do a better job providing what they advertised. Don't get me wrong, Amazon has earned my trust for more than
10 years (close to 15?), and I think they are a great company, but this
one result is not good at all.

Rolling Flipper
This is an excellent study of John Paul II's difficult encyclical on faith and reason. Most of the contributions deal with the vexed issue of "Christian philosophy," a much disputed topic in the 1930s which has been given new life by our reigning philosopher-pope. Highlights are the fine essays by Avery Cardinal Dulles, placing the current issues in historical context, and the remrkable essay by David Meconi on the Marian dimension of philosophy.
