Item description for Religion Before Dogma: Groundwork in Practical Theology by Douglas R. McGaughey...
McGaughey's project rejects the "pragmatic" solution to the skeptical dilemma created by deconstuction and postmodernism. It is not enough to say that the absence of absolute knowledge permits our embracing traditional theological claims bcause they have worked. McGaughey argues that once we recognize the conditions that make any and all experience possible are as certain as the immediacy of self-consciousness , the "how" of our knowing instructs us that we can and do "know" even when we do not have access to the "things" we know. In other words, Practical Theology shifts the focus away from what merely "pragmatically" works to to the "practical" conditions that enable any and all knowledge and understanding.
