Using Dooyeweerdian Philosophy

"I am strongly convinced that for the fruitful working out of this philosophy, in a genuinely scientific manner, there is needed a staff of fellow-labourers who would be in a position independently to think through its basic ideas in the special scientific fields.

"It is a matter of life and death for this young philosophy that Christian scholars in all fields of science seek to put it to work in their own specialty." Herman Dooyeweerd, A New Critique of Theoretical Thought, Vol I, p.vii.

The pages in this collection discuss how Dooyeweerdian philosophy has been used or might be used. New pieces might be added at any time. This index page has two parts, first a number of generic ways of using various portions of Dooyeweerd's thought, second, specific examples of use.
