Para lograrlo no dispone, sin embargo, de verdades definitivas, sino sólo de preguntas que dan lugar a respuestas siempre provisionales, engendradoras de interrogantes nuevos. Como en Sócrates según Platón y en Goethe visto por Eckermann, el diálogo no es, entonces, un modo menor del conocimiento humano, sino un camino mayor en pos del siempre frágil y relativo saber posible: una mayéutica que alumbra dudas y sugestiones, reservas y sospechas, y con ellas los acuerdos -y los acordes- llamados a guiar los trayectos personales y colectivos.

In der frühen Kaiserzeit werden Traditionen der gelebten faith verstärkt als Quelle philosophischen Denkens interpretiert und plausibilisiert. Heilige Erzählungen, Riten und Kultgegenstände erscheinen als Reflex göttlicher Wahrheit: sie eröffnen Erkenntnis, die wahres Leben verspricht. Umgekehrt beruft sich philosophische Weltdeutung auf die religiöse culture als letzten Erkenntnisgrund. Dieser Verschmelzung religiöser und philosophischer Diskurse, die insbesondere den Platonismus jüdischer, christlicher und pagan-religiöser Provenienz kennzeichnet, entspringen kreative Neudeutungen in beiden Feldern. Im vorliegenden Tagungsband zeichnen ausgewiesene Fachleute aus den Bereichen Klassische Philologie, Theologie, Religionswissenschaft, Judaistik und Philosophiegeschichte ein landscape der religiös-philosophischen Literatur der frühen Kaiserzeit, über religiös-kulturelle Herkunftsbereiche, Sprachgrenzen und Literaturgattungen hinweg. Die Beiträge reichen von der paganen griechischen und lateinischen Literatur über hellenistisch-jüdische und neutestamentliche Texte bis hin zu Qumran sowie dem gnostischen und hermetischen Schrifttum. Dieser Querschnitt durch die religiös-philosophische Literatur der Kaiserzeit wird ergänzt und vertieft durch exemplarische Studien zu einzelnen Autoren und Texten (Philon von Alexandria, Plutarch, Johannesevangelium, Klemens von Alexandria). Die Beiträge wurden bei der 'Impulstagung' des Projekts Ratio Religionis im Februar 2007 an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen gehalten. Wichtige Quellentexte werden am Schluss zweisprachig dargeboten.
