Dogmatics as the fist intepretation of the religious sense in the philosophy of religion of F.D.E. Schleiemacher

Cover Page


The works of Schleiermacher is devided into two parts: works on hermeneutics and works devoted to the philosophy of religion and theology. Researchers of Scheleiermacher’s philosophy usually concentrate only on the one part. That leads to separation between two parts of Schleiermacher’s philosophical system. Religion, according to Schleiermacher, referes to specific sphere of human life, the sphere of sense. That religious sense Schleiermacher calls the sense of infinite. However, one cannot feel that sense without expressing it into outside world. Dogmatics is didactic form of the expression of religious sense. This article is devoted to connection between hermeneutics and religion, which expresses itself through dogmatics. The author claims that dogmatics in Schleiermscher religious system is the way of expressing personal religious feeling to other people. So it is the way of exposion and expression of individual sense through the system of symbols and concepts.
