First questions

  • How is spirituality reduced to mundane phenomena?

  • Why are we unrealistic about spirituality?


Three reductions

Three reductions


Secular spirituality

Secular Spirituality


Two poles of subjectivity

Two Poles of Subjectivity


Implicit humanism

Implicit Humanism


Anti realism constructivism

Anti-realism/Constructivism

  • No declarative truth corresponding to spiritual realities

  • Spiritual insight is mere opinion

  • The data about spirituality builds inter-professional coherence

  • The ‘truth’ about spirituality is found in efficiency and utility


Liturgical worship

Liturgical Worship

  • Beyond “religious experience”

  • Beyond categorical knowledge

  • Beyond natural existence

  • Supernatural grace

  • From and towards God


Historicism

Historicism

  • All human activities are defined by their history; they have no other reality

  • Denial of the invariance of Christian dogma

  • Truth is relative to the knowledge systems of a particular era; knowledge is defined by social and cultural context


God of philosophers

God of Philosophers

  • The experience of God is not bound by concepts

  • The experience of God does not arise from a universal type (e.g., a being with divine attributes)
