Tertium datur - on the conception of truth in Dutch 'Ethical Theology'
In this article the 'third option' on the Dutch theological scene of a century ago is examined. The 'Ethical Theology', as this option is known, is explained on the basis of its characteristic conception of truth as something that cannot be encapsulated in propositions but which can be encountered. In this context the relationship between the Ethicals and their rivals on both the left and the right is discussed. In conclusion, an evaluation is given of the achievement of the Ethical current and its accommodation of reason and faith in a single theory.
