Abstract: Straipsnyje nagrinėjamas Antano Maceinos vaidmuo Lietuvos filosofijos istorijoje. Remiantis autobiografine ir istorine medžiaga akcentuojamas filosofijos ir teologijos santykio prieštaringumas Maceinos kūryboje, jo atsiribojimas nuo jaunystėje įgyto neoscholastinio išsilavinimo, „krikščionybės filosofijos“ postulavimas kaip konflikto tarp filosofinio klausimo ir tikėjimo atsakymo sprendimo būdas

In Maceina’s case, being a Christian necessary entails having some convictions which can be hold “theological”. On the other hand, being a philosopher entails liberty of thought and interpretation. In this regard, “theological” sometimes means “forced” and “dogmatic”. In the article, Maceina’s attitude is compared to the Heidggerian one, exemplified by such prominent theo-logians as Jozeph Ratzinger and Karl Rahner. Maceina treats philosophy as being essentially a question and theology as an answer; it means their going contrariwise and inevitably getting into collusion. [...]
