The sense of many today that faith is antithetical to reason grows partly out of the Reformation and Enlightenment, in which people on both sides found they could not intellectually reconcile the conclusions of faith and reason. Just as importantly, faith and reason each came to represent a different moral ideal. As I see them, though, the moral ideals of faith and reason only make sense together, and faith and philosophy are two aspects of the same process. I wrote about this in some reflections of mine recently posted on the Mormon Scholars Testify website. Take a look, and tell me what you think.
