Abstract

Philosophia Reformata 79 (2014) 97­118 : THE DOOYEWEERDIAN MODEL AND OTHER SUGGESTIONS Renato Coletto* This article evaluates the Dooyeweerdian model concerning the nature, functions and relationships among various scientific and pre-scientific frameworks. The main tenets of this model are explored and some of the critiques and proposals provided by fellow Kuyperian schools and authors are also taken into account. In the process, some of the problems to be avoided and some of the preferable paths to be followed are indicated. The article is concluded with the proposal of an improved version of the Dooyeweerdian model, which I call the "network model". 1. Introduction What I mean by `encyclopaedia' is one's understanding of the relationships among sciences, and also among sciences and pre-scientific frameworks1 (e.g., worldviews). My interest in encyclopaedic issues started many years ago, when I was a member of a theological institute in Italy. The majority-opinion, in that context, was that theology is the key-player to achieve sound Christian scholarship. Reformational philosophy helped me to realise that the `map' of the relationships between sciences should be drawn differently.
