The underlying objective of this paper is to radicalize the quest for mediation between theology and science in the perspective of the Eastern Orthodox theological commitment, understood as an expression of immediate existential concerns of humanity. Seen in the context of contemporary intellectual movements, the dialogue with science can be characterized as a further synthesis of the Church Fathers’ premodern ideas and their ecclesial theology with the contemporary philosophical phenomenology within the “radical theological sensibility” necessitated by the challenges of postmodernity. The aim of this synthesis is to reassert the importance and values of Christian civilization in these times when the extreme secularization of life, as well as dehumanization of nature and life itself threaten the stability of human existence and fulfilment of its infinite tasks.
