On the Implication of Faith

Yongqiong QIU


The German philosopher Karl Jaspers once said, “it is not enough to have faith: After we establish a firm faith while not understanding the deep meaning of the faith, in my opinion this is a hasty attitude.” To define faith from the approach of “genus + species difference” helps us to have a more in-depth understanding of the characteristics and the nature of faith. Faith refers to that the subject of faith is extremely convinced by “truth, goodness and beauty” of the object of faith and then generates respect, admiration, reverence and belief and other psychological consciousness and advanced spiritual consciousness with ultimacy. Faith is not a “proper noun” for religion or politics. People can have faith in anyone, anything, any object, any opinion or doctrine, purpose or meaning of life and so. However, there are scientific and non-scientific faiths.
