Allan Savage deposited THINKING OUTSIDE THE CHURCH: Foundations for the 21st Century in the group Philosophy of Religion on Humanities Commons 3 months, 2 weeks ago
I contend that the modern discipline of Sociology, as understood in the West, has evolved into a socio-philosophy from within an existential system of theology. Two systems of philosophy confront one another in the contemporary world, i.e., classical philosophy based on the authority of Hellenistic philosophy and an existential philosophy based on the authority of experience. Each discloses methodologies that are opposed to the other as dogma is opposed to modern science. The problems I discuss here concern humanitarian theology and are investigated through the hybrid notion of socio-philosophy, thus they neither belong to sociology alone nor to philosophy alone.
