What does it mean to be called to the profession of philosophy? What does it mean for the Christian in particular? And how should those called to the profession engage their tasks?Noting thatphilosophyliterally is "the love of wisdom," Garrett J. DeWeese begins with a discussion ofwisdomfrom the Old and New Testaments before addressing the often misunderstood relation between faith and reason.DeWeese then clarifies the fundamental questions of metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and aesthetics, philosophy of mind and philosophy of science, finally anchoring the discussion with an identification of philosophy with Christian spiritual formation.
