Why is it assumed that the kind of knowledge that theology represents is in some fashion deficient when compared to other subjects? Stanley Hauerwas argues that theology is often excluded from the knowledges of the modern university because those knowledges are constituted by an understanding of time necessary to make economic and state realities seem inevitable. Yet it is precisely this difference that makes Christian theology an essential resource for the university to achieve its task that is, to form people who are able to imagine a different world through critical and disciplined reflection."--Jacket." ;
