This part of The Dooyeweerd Pages contains various papers (mainly academic) that seek to discuss or apply Dooyeweerdian thought to various scientific areas, disciplines, etc. Expect it to grow. For a lot more papers, related to reformational thinking, see Steve Bishop's All of Life Redeemed website.
Currently we have on this site:
- Yong-Joon Choi's excellent dissertation 'Dialogue and Antithesis'
Not only a study of Dooyeweerd's transcendental critique, and a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of Dooyeweerdian thought, but an application of the Dooyeweerdian critique to Korean thought and culture.
- A Presentation of Herman Dooyeweerd's Aspects of Temporal Reality, A. Basden, 2011, published in IJMAP.
This paper, which was first published in the International Journal of Multi-aspectual Practice, attempts to set out the kernel meanings of Dooyeweerd's aspects. It seeks to provide a starting-point for both those who seek a practical yet substantial understanding of Dooyeweerd's aspects, and those who wish to discuss aspects critically, especially in relation to each other.
- Understanding ICT in traditional classrooms in Nigeria, O.T. Adewolu, 2011. Dissertation for Masters degree.
In this dissertation, Opeoluwa Adewolu used Dooyeweerd's aspects to survey the literature discussions about ICT in education, using Dooyeweerd's aspects to identify what was meaningful to each of five cohorts. She found some interesting results, such as that teachers are more interested in the economic and juridical aspect than the social aspect, despite their relationship with students being important.
- 'Understanding Everyday Experience and Use of Facebook and Games', A. Basden, 2008.
This paper was delivered at the Workshop on Digital Culture: New Forms of Living and Organising?, organised by IRIS, the Informatics Research Centre, University of Salford, 16-17 June 2008. It employs Dooyeweerd's suite of aspects to understand both computer games and facebook. "I've been looking forward to this workshop for twenty years," said the author, "I began playing computer games 20 years ago, and for most of that time, academia has paid computer gaming no attention. Yet those involved in creating games in the early days (before the big money poured in), had creative ideas that would have been of interest to the disciplines of computer science, psychology, human factors, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, sociology and aesthetics. [approximate wording of what he said or at least meant to say]. All that time I wanted to find a way of understanding what was going on, and worked out a framework for understanding based on philosophy. This is a reflection on that working-out." This version has been written from the talk given, and is an initial draft for one to be submitted to a journal.
- Roy Clouser's "Three Watersheds of Biblical Interpretation".
- Though aimed at a Christian readership, this paper could be of wider interest, because it touches on the major religious systems found throughout the world, on how we can know the Divine and yet take a hermeneutic approach, on reductionism, on justice, on the relationship between religion and secular life, such as science, in a way that neither scholastic partition nor encyclopedic fundamentalism.
