[Autom. eng. transl.] Once historical prejudices and mutual closures have been overcome, philosophers and theologians have been together for several decades now for an exchange of perspectives and mutual listening about the fundamental questions of man, in an attempt to think better about the challenges of the contemporary world. The commitment that is required more and more urgently is the overcoming of ideological positions to allow oneself to be contaminated reciprocally. From disciplines of thought, with its own contents and methods, philosophy and theology offer themselves as effective paths to rethink the experience of man and the believer in particular. In this perspective, and within theological formation, philosophy and theology are urged not only to talk to each other, but also to listen to each other. It is precisely the boldness of thinking that gives theology an active contact with faith, while faith can give, and has given, as is historically documentable, many original ideas for thinking. In this mutual listening and speaking, philosophy and theology do not lose their fruitful reference to the mystery, to wisdom, to transcendence. This disposes them to dialogue, to remedy the constitutive surplus that their argument inhabits.
