This volume commences with an explanation of the intentions of an intrinsically reformational philosophy, followed by a discussion of theological criticism of Herman Dooyeweerd's philosophy (including the issue of a reformational Philosophy and the Reformed Confession), in order to unveil the point of contact between philosophy and the Christian religion, and to oppose the standpoint of accommodation in theological scholastic philosophy. The Logos-theory and two diverging lines in Kuyper's thought are investigated, upon which the insights of his transcendental critique of knowledge is applied to an assessment of the whole Thomistic doctrine of an analogy of being ("analogia entis") and of a natural theology (including Thomas Aquinas' "proofs" for the existence of God). After a brief discussion of the development of humanistic thought, Dooyeweerd analyzes the basic structures of reality, confronting the traditional Aristotelian-Thomistic concept of substance with his ideas on the structural wholeness of indivdual things (as determined by their individuality-structures). The volume concludes with the status of theological reflection, treated within the context of the conflict between the faculties.
