Abstract

The issue of openness in the natural and theological sciences plays a significant 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 tendency to use common terms in a distinctly differential way. Significant implications are drawn out for both natural and theological science.
