A tradition of hopeful intelligence: The Catholic intellectual tradition
Kelly, Anthony 2005. A tradition of hopeful intelligence: The Catholic intellectual tradition. Australian Ejournal of Theology. 5 (August), pp. 1 - 32.
This article reflects on the ways Christian hope affects intelligence. Without the sustaining influence of hope, intelligence suffers. With it, intelligence can overcome diffidence in the search for truth, and contribute more creatively to the common good. Christian intelligence, deriving from the wisdom of the cross, anticipates both an ultimate fulfilment and an ultimate judgment on evil. The article concludes with a reflection on Christopher Dawson's analysis of the modern cultural situation.
