A fascinating analysis of western thought and culture! Dooyeweerd finds four religious motives in the history of Western thought, three of which live with an internal dialectical tension: Greek form/matter; Christianity’s Creation, Fall, and Redemption, Medieval Catholicism synthesis of the former two (nature/grace), and Modern Humanism’s synthesis of the former three (nature/freedom).
