Nuances in the Philosophy of the Cosmonomic Idea

Abstract

This article comments on Danie Strauss’s Philosophy: Discipline of the disciplines. It deals with some differences between the author’s interpretation of the Philosophy of the Cosmonomic Idea and the views of Dooyeweerd and Strauss. I call these differences ‘nuances’ because our religious starting point is the same. This implies a realist religious view, confessing that God created the world according to laws which are invariant because He sustains them. We know God only through Jesus Christ, who submitted himself to God’s laws. Partial knowledge of God’s laws can be achieved by studying the law-conformity of the creation. In particular, I shall discuss the relevance of artefacts for the future development of the Philosophy of the Cosmonomic Idea.
