Love, Wisdom and (Christian) Philosophy

by Mark McLeod-Harrison and Stephen Kenyon

Does the practice of Christian philosophy (or should it, at any rate) produce wisdom?

As a contribution to the Christ-shaped philosophy project, Ttis paper considers recent claims about analytic theology and philosophy and their connections to wisdom and love, specifically those made by Michael Rea, Paul Moser and Michael McFall. It argues that the relationship between Christian philosophy or theology and wisdom-rooted love is not well represented by either the Moser-McFall camp or by Rea and is closer to Aaron Preston’s account of historical philosophy.

The paper concludes by considering the role of irony in doing Christian theology and philosophy.
