Hello! My name is Derek.  This blog is devoted to trace the historical developments surrounding Philosophy (predominantly western) and Christian Theology.  It is my conviction that historical/cultural context is vital to understand a person’s ideas.  It provides a framework, a camera lens if you will, through which we can fully appreciate how the most infuential minds, schools of thought, and ideas have impacted history, as well as aiding in evaluting their truthfulness.  Since this will be done in two disciplines that attempt to answer “ultimates” (Metaphysics: concerned with first principles and ultimate grounds, as being, time, or substance), it is called metaphysical frameworks.  To learn more about me and my beliefs, check out my my other blog.

I have a few posts imported here that will give anyone interested in participating the gist of the site.  Take the structure with a grain of salt.  It is just a template at this point.  Post on whatever you want within these broad parameters at any time, and i will organize it.

So far Johnny Dee has agreed to help.  Check out his great blog or his web site to learn more about him until i can reformat this blog to include him properly.  Please feel free to get involved as a writer.  I hope to hear from you soon.
