Example text

Rather these negative reactions represent entirely different value structures. Something for which Nietzsche coined the phrase "the transvaluation of all values" is involved here. How, then, can an understanding of Paul's preaching of Christ crucified be gained? Rickert's principle, that it is an understanding of the theory of value fundamental to evaluation which makes possible a theoretical description of value judgments is helpful at this point and must be retained. Theoretical description of values cannot be simply the registering of positive or negative value judgments whereby individuals become identified as historical individuals.

It is, therefore, the function of scientific philosophy to investigate critically the ultimate principles which are used and necessarily presupposed in all the domains of experience. 1 2 3 1 Det bestående i kristendomen (Stockholm, 1922), pp. 1 5 — 1 8 . 2 "Den metafysiska filosofiens betydelse för religionsvetenskapen," Bibelforskaren, X X X V (1918), p. 1 3 7 , F M , pp. 17, 39, "Filosofiens centrum och periferi," Festskrift till Anders Karitz (Uppsala, 1946), p. 1 3 1 , " T h e Religious Realm of Meaning," The Christian Century, July 16, 1958, p.

Thus the difference between the theoretical and the practical in the realm of value judgments lies in the fact that the theoretical calls attention to the fact that the realm of the possible is more extensive than the realm of the actual, not only with respect to the fact that in a given situation several possible values may exist, but also due to the fact that there are several fundamentally different possible frames of value reference as well.
