I have titled this thesis “A hermeneutical approach to natural law,” and I want to investigate the making of moral theology in accounting for the contributions of the natural sciences. Thinking in terms of the theological and scientific discourses, one realizes that both render distinct interpretations of nature, and natural law arguments emerge from these interpretations in the sphere of ethics. Thus, a hermeneutics of the scientific activity and of moral reasoning delineates a major field of the dialogue between faith and reason.
