21 Thus Ricoeur, like the mature Kant, does not present a philosophy of religion
or a philosophical theology, but rather a philosophical hermeneutics of religious
discourse. For Ricoeur. philosophical engagement with religion is not a matter of

what is outside the limits of critical thinking. Critical thinking, we remember,
always combines opposites — such as singular representations of reference with

Perhaps this is a conclusion one might be wearily driven to accept, after many
efforts, but even then it would appear that human thinking would have to have a
certain competence even to recognize its incompetence. Such a negative result
might, in fact, be a valuable conclusion, analogous to the wisdom of Socrates,
who surpassed his contemporaries by recognizing what he did not know. But
what about the charge of the fideist that critical thinking about religious belief is
impious or ...

Critical Thinking and Practices of Subjectivity What do I mean by “criticism” or the
“critical”? Although Michael Warner (2004, 13–15) warns of the difficulties
involved with trying to define the “critical,” I will distinguish, without claiming to be
exhaustive, between four kinds of critical operations. First, critical thinking is
reflexively analytic. On a very basic level, all critical thinking is grounded in
analysis that makes useful and illuminating distinctions with respect to the
constitutive elements of ...

Indeed, Foucault understood his own work as offering a set of “tools” and his
books “scalpels” to uncover something. As he remarked in a 1978 interview: “
Each of my books is a way of dismantling an object, and of constructing a method
of analysis toward that end” (Foucault 1978a, 28). I will, therefore, map three
phases of his thinking as three “tools” of critical thinking for the philosophy of
religion: archaeology, genealogy and problematization. As Foucault always
included religious ...
