PHIL 8820 Hegel, Kierkegaard, Blondel (Fall: 3 )
Reason and religion converge in the question of how we relate to the true Infinite. We will examine how the problem of the infinite arises in our consciousness according to these authors, how we try to resolve it immanently, and how it has to give way to absolute transcendence. We shall explore not only how these three authors converge around the question of the infinite but also how they diverge radically in handling the question as it affects the relation between reason and religion.
