Entry 0092: The Philosophy of the Actus Essendi: The One Universally Valid Philosophy Recommended by Fides et Ratio (II)

Stephen Pimentel writes,

Notable is John Paul II’s urgent recommendation in Fides et Ratio, par. 97 of a “philosophy of being” that “is based upon the very act of being itself” and that “views reality in its ontological, causal and communicative structures” so as to surpass “every limit in order to reach the One.”
