Skrócony opis:

This course helps the students to rediscover an old notion in the history of philosophy, theology, and the sciences: the notion of divine revelation. First we attempt to clarify the main meanings of the notion. At the same time, we need to reflect on our method: how is it possible to talk about revelation? Second, we consider the developments and ramifications of this notion in Western history. We also refer to parallel notions in other cultures, especially in Islam. Next, our main concern will be the special role the notion of revelation played in the emergence of modern sciences in the West as this notion is actively presupposed by the most important development in our pre-modern and modern history of ideas.

Next, our main concern will be the special role the notion of revelation played in the emergence of modern sciences in the West as this notion is actively presupposed by the most important development in our pre-modern and modern history of ideas. Finally, we consider two lines of development: on the one hand, the peculiar development of the notion of revelation in contemporary thought (philosophy and theology included) and, on the other hand, the relevance of some notion of revelation to the sciences on the contemporary scene with special emphasis on quasi-theories implying a certain understanding of revelation today.
