An Unusual Approach to Christian Existence
A discussion on the teachings of Msgr. Luigi GIUSSANI
The book Is It Possible to Live This Way? addresses important issues on the state of the Western world, offering a significant contribution to the discussion on the relationship between faith and reason, along with science and religion. There has been a strong trend in our culture to identify reason with the methods of the natural sciences, and to dismiss all other forms of knowledge as necessarily non-objective and irrational. This tendency to diminish the scope and depth of human reason has been one of the main concerns of Pope Benedict XVI, who has repeatedly called for a "broadening of reason," pointing out that even science builds on philosophical foundations that it does not give itself.
