Om tro & förnuft på ett nytt sätt

While we rejoice in the new possibilities open to humanity, we also see the dangers arising from these possibilities and we must ask ourselves how we can overcome them. We will succeed in doing so only if reason and faith come together in a new way, if we overcome the self-imposed limitation of reason to the empirically falsifiable, and if we once more disclose its vast horizons. . .

Only thus do we become capable of that genuine dialogue of cultures and religions so urgently needed today. . . . A reason which is deaf to the divine and which relegates religion into the realm of subcultures is incapable of entering into the dialogue of cultures.

—Påve Benedict XVI, Regensburg, September 2006

Gamla falska dikotomier som den mellan tro och förnuft börja sakta, sakta ge vika. Konferenser såsom denna är glädjande tecken på att det våras! Njut av talarlistan!
