RESEARCH AND TRUTH? ADJUSTMENTS IN SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY IN THE LIGHT OF CHANGING CONTEXTS

Cornel Du Toit

Abstract


The reformulation of a theological research policy is necessitated by a post-apartheid environment as well as development concerning the value, preconditions and manner of research.  One could, for example, refer to the changing concept of truth and how it affects research.  In this paper it is argued that systematic theology is practiced today in a context that could be typified as postcanonical, postconfessional, posttraditional, postsecular and interreligious.
