Pope Benedict XVI's Lecture at Regensburg is one of the most concise and accurate analyses of the modern world and its origins. Its real dimensions were originally obscured , but become clear with more sober reflection on its meaning.

From the Essay:

"The Regensburg lecture is nothing less than an effort to re-establish among us or establish for the first time, as the case may be, just what a university is in its entirety and what it is to deal with--that is, with everything including revelation."

"He (Benedict) addresses all cultures from the basis of reason, that universal reason that was met by the initial thinkers of Christianity.  He does not allow them a culture that denies or ignores reason.  The same is true of the self limiting of a scientific method that claims to deal with the truth by leaving out most of man's really important questions."
