De la science de Dieu à la superstition : un enchaînement de l’arbre encyclopédique qui donne à penser

Abstract : From the science of god to superstition This article analyses one of the first branches of the encyclopedic tree, namely the branch which leads us from the ‘Science of God’, via ‘Natural and Revealed Theology’ to ‘Religion’ and its abuse, or ‘Supersition’. The editors cleverly indicate this ‘dangerous liaison’ of the ‘science of god’ and ‘superstition’ by beginning with the classic couple natural and revealed theology but by reversing their order and putting natural before revealed theology. The considerable effect of this reversal is to impose the superiority of reason over faith; reason is no longer the servant of theology or dependent on faith but is instead its foundation. The functioning of this link in the tree is here studied through the relevant articles.
