“The notion of mind from a theological perspective of the person: the relationship between divine action and human cognition”

As a continuation of the method oriented by Pannenberg of an anthropology in theological perspective, the lecture offers an interpretation of the human mind, more concretely, about the notion of divine action and the relationship it can have with the human cognition. For instance, how, if possible, can God act in the human mind. Following the method, not through a dogmatic attempt, but reviewing the cognitive sciences of the last 30 years, in order to find which hypothesis and explanations can serve of theological relevance for a Christian philosophy. Such a discussion will take as particularly relevant the approach of the so called “emergent complexity” and the proposal of a divine agency made by Philip Clayton and Steven Knapp an other recent Christian interpretations.
