(p.31) Two The Idea of a Science-in-Christ

This chapter examines the idea of a “science-in-Christ” in relation to the grandeur of Reason. To “philosophize in Christ” is one of those injunctions of which philosophy boasts so many—but this time a Lutheran (and Pauline) one against Plato and the Greeks. It means recognizing the grandeur of reason, since one must philosophize but at the same time place reason in conflict with faith. The chapter argues that to philosophize in Christ does not affect the grandeur of Reason if it really is a question of a science-in-Christ. It also explains how we can speak of a non-Christian science with “Christianity” as its object, and other religions through it. Finally, it discusses the symptoms of generic science in Christ, the quantum model of Christ, the experimental science of the Cross, faith or fidelity as generic quantum, names and functions of the radical “Christ,” the messiah-functions, and quantum theory of the body of Christ.

Keywords:   science-in-Christ, Christ, philosophy, reason, faith, Christianity, generic science, Cross, quantum theory, messiah-function
