Panelankündigung "Models in Theology"


Ankündigung eines Panels im Rahmen der "Conference of the European Academy of Religion" (EuARe2024), Palermo

Angelika Wimmer (Fundamentaltheologie) und Dominik Baumgartner (Dogmatik) haben ein internationales Panel zum Thema "Models in Theology. Methodical and Theological Paradigm Shifts through Model-Building" im Rahmen der EuARe2024 in Palermo organisiert. Die Tagung findet vom 20.–23.05.2024 statt.

Das Panel möchte die Leistungsfähigkeit und Anwendungsgebiete theologischer Modellbildung erkunden und dabei Wissenschaftstheorie, Religionsphilosophie und Theologie zusammenführen.

Abstract zum Panel: Models play a crucial role in acquiring scientific knowledge, spanning disciplines from physics to virology, sociology, philosophy, and theology. The historical tradition of model-building in theology dates back to scholastics like Thomas Aquinas. This panel delves into the evolving nature of theological model-building, emphasizing two paradigm shifts. Firstly, it examines changes in the method and content of model-building, posing questions about the unique scientific-theoretical significance of theological models. The need for a distinct theological model theory is highlighted. Secondly, the shift towards innovative approaches in theological models is explored, influenced by encounters with secular philosophical problems and analytical philosophy. The panel aims to address these shifts by investigating the philosophy of science related to theological models and exploring theological peculiarities, using examples like Eucharistic theology and the belief in the Resurrection of the body.

Das Panel findet am 23.05.24 statt.
