Guestioning the History of Relations between Theology and Natural Science from the Methodological Perspective
This paper introduces and reflects upon methodological merits of the author’s long-standing work on a book dedicated to the topic of Czech Catholic theology’s reaction from 1850 to 1950 to the challenges posed by natural science in the world-wide and interdisciplinary context. It is demonstrated that there is no tension on the axis theology vs. natural science, but on the axis theistic vs. atheistic world-view. The author rejects ideologisation of theology and natural science. In theology, this topic is in the competence of fundamental theology, where a new discipline of “theology of natural science” should be established. Therefore, it should be integrated into dogmatic theology as well, esp. to the treatise on God the Creator and on the qualities of the Triune Creature.
