Studiedag Truth, what is that?
Does the value of what you think or say depend upon the force or conviction of your opinion? Is it possible to look for or find what is true, even if there is disagreement? Who am I to know what is true? What about my doubts? What are doubts and can I know anything for sure if there are doubts? Are doubts the same as questions and critical reflexion? Is a doubt the same as a suspicion and how do these play a (helpful and healthy) role my approach to reality, be that people, opinions or God Himself?
The modern era has seen many thinkers who put doubt and suspicion as primary in our lives and contact with others. How has this teaching developed and what are its foundations? Fr Thomas will teach about all these questions and more and help us see more clearly how we can progress in seeking understanding and experience. He will adress the most sensitive and central issues concerning knowledge, truth, reality and relativism in our times.
