In reflection on the question as to in what sense is our time a time of transition, the article explores the various transitions in epistemology, advocated by the scholars mentioned in brackets:

• modern to postmodern
• secular dualism to post-secular holism (Cornel du Toit)
• structural to poststructural
• positivistic to relativistic
• rational-argumentative to narrative
• proposisionalistic to cultural-linguistic (Lindbeck)
• fundamentalist to postfoundationalist (Schrag and Van Huyssteen)
• maintenance to missional.
