Stephen Pimentel on the Philosophy of Being
in Fides et ratio

Entry 0092: Stephen Pimentel on the Philosophy of Being 
in Fides et ratio

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.”
