Chapter Summary

The intellectual revolutions of the seventeenth century have been chronicled in numerous monographs and histories, and, most recently, with significant attention paid to less-famous figures. Seventeenth-century proponents of the older Christian Aristotelianism, whether philosophers or theologians, who looked on the various forms of late Renaissance and early modern rationalism as distinctly problematic have been neglectedeither barely mentioned or dismissed as less than cognizant of the demands of modernity, whether scientific or cultural. This chapter looks at the problem of the new philosophies and related issues in the new science from the perspective of one well-placed theologian and churchman of the era, with specific attention to the perceived dangers posed by a particular form of seventeenth-century rationalism for the cogency of traditional theological discourse.
