By Brayton Polka

Rethinking Philosophy in mild of the Bible analyzes the guidelines which are significant to the philosophy of Kant, Hegel, and Kierkegaard to be able to exhibit that they're biblical in foundation, either ontologically and traditionally. Brayton Polka argues that Schopenhauer has an altogether fake belief of the elemental principles of the Bible—creation, the autumn of Adam and Eve, and covenantal love—and of Christianity, which leaves his philosophy irredeemably contradictory, as he himself recognizes. the purpose, then, is to teach that our smooth values, the values that represent modernity, are biblical in starting place. it is just after we come to appreciate that modernity is biblical from the start and that the Bible is sleek unto the top that we can conquer the competition, so glaring at the present time, among philosophy and theology, among cause and religion, and among the secular and the non secular. Polka makes primary the excellence that Kierkegaard attracts among Christianity and Christendom: Christianity represents the arrival into ancient lifestyles of the one person; Christendom represents Christian values which are rationalized in pagan phrases. As Kierkegaard indicates us, if God has continuously existed without end, then he hasn't ever existed endlessly, then he hasn't ever come into historic lifestyles for the only person. the excellence among Christianity and Christendom is the excellence now not among religion and cause, yet among fact and idolatry. whereas theology and philosophy every one characterize the reality of Christianity, Schopenhauer’s idolatrous strategies of religion, at least of cause, signify Christendom.
