This essay addresses the question, in what sense can and should philosophy be Christian? After considering some views according to which philosophy should not and cannot be Christian, the ideas of three prominent Christian philosophers on the topic are surveyed, and in the light of this some conclusions are formulated.




Niniejszy esej podejmuje kwestię dotyczącą tego, w jakim sensie filozofia może i powinna być chrześcijańska. Po rozważeniu kilku koncepcji, według których filozofia ani nie powinna, ani nie może być chrześcijańska, dokonuje się przeglądu koncepcji trzech wybitnych filozofów chrześcijańskich na ten temat. W świetle tych ujęć zostają sformułowane określone wnioski.
