Quick provides a good focus for this, since he did not overtly identify himself with
any ecclesiastical, theological or philosophical school; he wrote at all levels, from
popular to academic; and he covered a wide range of topics. But of particular
importance is the fact that he was optimistic about the prospect of an alliance
between theology and philosophy at a time when their relation was contested. He
saw himself as a 'Christian philosopher' in search of a 'christocentric metaphysic',

As the science of being and of the principles of being metaphysics is the first
philosophical discipline; it does not depend on the criticism of our knowledge.
Being reveals itself to us and, because of the evidence which accompanies
careful reductions and deductions, certainty is possible. Metaphysics and the
Christian Faith In the previous section an account was given of the way in which,
according to Aquinas one enters metaphysics. To make this point clear we have
been using ...

But if Christianity is not a metaphysical system, it nevertheless implies
metaphysical claims. And since very early times Christian thinkers have struggled
toformulate these claims in philosophical terminology and to demonstrate their
rational acceptability using philosophical methods. If by a Christian metaphysic
we mean the result of such reflection, in which a Christian thinker seeks to
develop a metaphysical system which is compatible with Christian faith and
which is an adequate ...

All of these can hardly be dissociated from the attempt to comprehend the primal
origin of things.8 The same is true of medieval philosophy, which was dominated
by the effort to employ the resources of Greek thought to project, articulate and
justify the wealth of the Christian faith. Without question, the two central figures
here are St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas. The former drew largely from the
Platonic tradition, while the latter sought to obtain a synthesis of Greek thought
and ...

Unfortunately, there is no general agreement among philosophers about how to
answer these questions, and in fact, one's view about methodology in
metaphysics will be dependent, at least in part, on one's positions about general
solutions to philosophical questions. For example, some philosophers are
philosophical naturalists who hold that reality is exhausted by the spatiotemporal
world of physical objects embraced by our best scientific theories. In their view,
science is the main ...

cold-blooded metaphysician over the moral philosopher and the Christian
theologian. This gap - or rather this tension - between God's universally operative
ontological beneficence and his specifically moral beneficence is never
satisfactorily closed by Leibniz. And to invoke at this point the aid of the Pre-
Established Harmony would be to beg rather than to answer the question at issue
. But in any event, the idea that this tension is resolvable - and indeed resolved in
this 'best of all ...

The theologian, by my lights, is free either to engage the distinctly metaphysical
discussion or to leave it in the hands of the metaphysicians.60 As Craig says in
defense of his ST model, “our Trinitarian model . . . is theologically
unobjectionable and open to various mereological construals, leaving it up to the
metaphysician to choose that construal which best accords with his views.”61
Importantly, both accounts can stake an honest claim to satisfy the major
theological desiderata.
