Word and the World Theology After the Sociology of Knowledge

by Dan Frank

Word and the World Theology After the Sociology of Knowledge Synopsis

If one accepts the basic premise of the sociology of knowledge, that our truths are values and culturally produced and culturally relative, then doing theology is problematised. Theology wishes to retain disciplinary autonomy but the sociology of knowledge is no great respecter of the boundaries that we erect between different kinds of knowledge. It is this challenge that this most original book addresses. Dan Frank argues that what is needed is a step by step re-evaluation of the traditional theological affirmations in terms these new cognitive criteria. But a new theology could be constructed by critical reflection of the success and failures of modernity.
