Main Title

Openness and Formal Logic in the Natural and Theological Sciences according to T. F. Torrance

Abstract

The issue of openness in the natural and theological sciences play?s a signifi?cant role in the theology? of T. F. Torrance. The ?depths of this role is made most clear when considered in light of Torrance'?s understanding of formal logic, a discipline long considered to be utterly closed. This essay seeks to demonstrate the openness that is necessary for all thought, not least in logic, in order to be meaningful. Additionally, it examines a concrete example of Torrance?'s ten?dency? to use common terms in a d?istinctly? d?iff?erential wa?y. Signifi?cant implications are ?drawn out for both natural and theological science.
