Replies to Moser and Di Ceglie on Christ-Shaped Philosophy

by Graham Oppy

This paper continues the discussion on "Christ-Shaped Philosophy," as advanced by Paul Moser's paper

Helpful comments from Paul Moser and Roberto Di Ceglie suggest--to me--a need for sharpening my previous response.I try to do this here.

I see a prima facie tension between three claims that Moser makes for “Christ-shaped philosophy”:

  1. “Christ-shaped philosophy is distinctive in virtue of its content”;
  2. “Christ-shaped mathematics” is not distinctive in virtue of its content;
  3. “Christ-shaped philosophy” is a model for “Christ-shaped mathematics”.

I do not yet see how Moser proposes to resolve this prima facie tension.
