(2015 )Common Ground Between Athens and Jerusalem(2015) “Common Ground Between Athens and Jerusalem,” Common Ground Journal, Vol. 12, No. 2. Abstract Aaron Simmons, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Furman University, has made a convincing plea that Christian philosophers should not allow themselves to define philosophy of religion for everyone else. To broaden the scope of the philosophy of religion it is valuable to explore the contributions from the world’s three major monotheisms: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.

(2015 )Ethical Life as Condition for Contemplation(2015) “Ethical Life as Condition for Contemplation,” Common Ground Journal, Vol. 12, No. 2. Abstract Spiritual formation has traditionally understood the practical life to be interwoven with the contemplative life, giving preference to one or the other as historical movements waxed or waned. However, contemporary continental philosophy, employed in a Christian vein, would not only argue for the preeminence of the practical life but would argue that the practical, ethical life is the very condition for Christian contemplation. By following the historical arguments of Philippe Nemo and the philosophical arguments of Emmanuel Levinas, Western reason has followed a particular cultural model that culminates in actions directed by a tendency toward manipulation and domination. However, a proper ethical orientation can free the Christian toward proper, spiritual formation in contemplation by first living out the call to ethical service.
