All of us, to some degree or another, are operating with a provisional philosophy. Many, like Kierkegaard’s drunken peasants, never think through any of their internal operating systems. But those of us who think through at least some aspect of it, are left with the logistical realities of our time limitations.
In the absence of being able to think through every aspect, we operate with provisional philosophies.
It would seem to me that the more accurate we are in our foundational philosophic assumptions about God and the good, the less likely we are to be in error with our provisional philosophies.
I am acutely aware of the many areas I have been unable to dedicate the time to “think through.”
I am seeking some means of categorizing those more important philosophical questions.
