The Key Presupposition of the Enlightenment and of Liberal Theology


Liberal Theology assumes that there are no divine interventions. Often this is presented as the result of research, but in fact it is derived from determinism (also called 'the causal nexus'), i.e. the doctrine that every event is necessitated by preceding events. Daniel von Wachter examines the function this doctrine plays in authors of the Enlightenment and of Liberal Theology, argues that it is wrong, and explains why it is important to see that it is wrong.
