The theological origins of modernity
Journal/Book: Crit Rev. 1999; 13: PO Box 10, Dept 137, Newtown, CT 06470, USA. Critical Review Foundation. 1-30.
Abstract: Most critiques of modernity rest on an inadequate understanding of its complexity. Modernity should be seen in terms of the question that guides modern thought. This is the question of divine omnipotence that arises out of the nominalist destruction of Scholasticism. Humanism, Reformation Christianity, empiricsim, and rationalism ave different responses to this question.
