Abstract

Is Christian science feasible? A dogmatic-philosophical perspective
According to positivism, presuppositions cannot exist in science; therefore, a religious system like Christian science is questionable. But, in agreement with several perspectives - such as contemporary philosophy of science, the religious heart of man, the fundamentals of Dooyeweerd, the structure of knowledge, scientific communication and scientific criticism - the author argues that positivism is defunct, and that facts can never be objective. Therefore, presuppositions do exist in science. A religious system such as Christian science should not be treated with suspicion. The paper concludes with three possible presuppositions in Christian science.
