Abstract [en]

A number of contemporary Swedish and international theologians maintain that postmodernism has created a much more benign climate for theology. The conditions of doing theology has indeed changed to such an extent that we are justified in talking about a paradigm shift in theology. In this essay I evaluate some of the epistemological changes that are taken to be part of this paradigm shift in theology. To be able do this I develop what I call an “upgraded everyday life epistemology” and try to identify the differences between it and this new epistemology. I then explain why I think we should accept some of the elements of postmodern epistemology but reject others. Most of all I argue that postmodern views about truth, reason, knowledge, and rationality lack sufficient precision to be objects for a properly evaluated.
