Example text

According to Kant, the mind of a human being has innate categories by which the mind actively classifies the sensory data it receives. For example, the concepts of space and time are forms of a priori categories that the mind imposes on sensory data. The mind is not a passive receiver of truth from the outside world but an active participant in knowledge, shaping the logical categories of judgment. This means that empiricism is not alone complete. Pure, unaltered sensory experience of the world does not exist according to Kant.

God is beyond all categories and beyond the comprehension of the human mind. We encounter real limits in our reasoning and in our knowledge. However, as Jacques Maritain insisted, we can know something about God by combining the empirical, metaphysical, and mystical ways of knowing. The empirical way alone leads only to naturalism and denies the existence of the divine. As theologian Paul Tillich observed: “The main argument against naturalism in whatever form is that it denies the infinite distance between the whole of finite things and their infinite ground, with the consequence that the term ‘God’ becomes interchangeable with the term ‘universe’ and therefore is semantically superfluous.

Toby is the result of a particular mating between two adult golden retrievers. These two golden retrievers may never have met. The existence of Toby depended upon the mating of these two retrievers. Toby’s existence is contingent (dependent) upon his parents having met. His continuing existence is also dependent, among other things, upon the frozen turkey dinners he devours each evening. Moreover, Toby’s existence is not an indefeasible existence; his existence can be taken away from him. In addition to Toby, the list of contingent things is almost endless.
