Greek Philosophy in Christian TheologyAndrew BohanStrayer UniversityHUM 400 November 2010AbstractIn this paper I will be exploring how Greek Philosophy helped shape Christian Theology. We will be descending back in time to the Ancient Greeks quest for knowledge, and how it played a part in the movement for their thirst for reason and inquiry. Along with that I will be tying in Christian Theology and the earliest showing of this technique. After you read this paper you should be able to walk away with a better understanding of this topic.Philosophy is the study of technical instruction and practical concepts. Theology on the other hand is the practice, study, and experience on the subject of religions. During Ancient Greece, Socrates began the movement for his method known as the Socratic Method, and was credited as a Classical Greek Philosopher, who helped found Western Philosophy, and a reformer of education in the fifth century BC. To Socrates his philosophy was centered on self-development versus the material likes of this era. After questioning those who had a reputation for wisdom and who considered themselves wise, he concluded that he was wiser than they because he could recognize his ignorance while they, who were equally ignorant, thought themselves wise. (Encyclopedia of World Biography, 2009)Little is known about Socrates' own beliefs, as he asked many more questions than he himself
