Sample text

He hoped to recover one clear principle of certain knowledge in an attempt to rebuild confidence in reason. He thought that if he could find one universally true principle— not subject to doubt—he could build upon that principle with other equally true principles to more fully grasp reality. ” And with this simple sentence, Descartes changed the history of philosophy and human knowledge. Today, in a similar way, we confront a problem like the one that challenged Descartes. We are challenged by the assertion of moral relativism—that there are no longer any universal moral principles that can guide a world with so many diverse cultures, religions, and philosophies.

This inadequate understanding leads to the imposition of an artificial and false morality that restrains humanity’s freedom and arrests its development. John Paul II and Benedict XVI have responded to this challenge by taking St. ”15 Indeed, virtually every encyclical written by John Paul II makes some reference to this statement of the Second Vatican Council. On reading this sentence, one’s first impression may be that it is simply stating the obvious: of course, a Christian would be expected to say something like that.

Of course, Paul’s critique of classical pagan culture was developed throughout the early centuries of the church (most prominently by St. Augustine), and it rested precisely on the claim that it is Christ and Christ alone who fully reveals man to himself. Therefore, as worthy as the pagan philosophers were, their view of the human person was ultimately insufficient to adequately understand the nature, dignity, and destiny of each man and woman. The Enlightenment of the eighteenth century marks a reversal of this dynamic, which, we might say, reaches its high point with the masters of suspicion.
