Christian Existential Phenomenology

Christian Existential Phenomenology

WHAT IS CEP?
Christian Existential Phenomenology is an epistemology (i.e., theory of knowledge) that seeks to explore the relationship between post-modern critical theory (e.g., deconstruction, post-structuralism) and an Existentialism drawing from a Christian worldview and the pragmatism of phenomenological philosophy and modern science. The below items represent critical thinking toward these subjects that I initially began in 1991 and successively built upon with the following items written in 1992, 1993, and 1996.

A READING TACTIC INTO CEP
The following items are arranged chronologically from bottom to top to indicate the progressive development of CEP. The reader may wish to begin at any level he or she wishes, depending on their level of familiarity with post-modern critical theory. However, he or she is strongly encouraged to complete their readings with a consideration of the context that the formal CEP outline offers.
