Abstract

The article examines the amount and degree of reception of ideas of Western philosophy in Lithuanian philosophy of religion. The goal of the article is to show how the discourse of contemporary philosophy of religion has been developing in Lithuania. This branch of philosophy was not only one of those most important in Lithuania for its cultural and social implications and significant for the formation and maintenance of national identity; also, it was best developed and controversial theoretically. The article uncovers the genesis of autonomous Lithuanian philosophy of religion strongly influenced by transformations in the general European philosophy. For that reason, it is necessary to present the ideas of the most prominent Lithuanian thinkers of the field who have successfully adopted and adapted the most vital trends of Western philosophy to the Lithuanian cultural and intellectual context. The article is rather problematic than historical as it deals with specific issues concerning faith, God, anthropological problems as reflected in the works of representatives of the contemporary Lithuanian philosophy of religion. Only upon exploring some affiliations of Lithuanian philosophy of religion with western thought we may state that although the latter was the necessarily condition for the former, Lithuanian philosophy of religion substantiates its sovereign status while originally correlating major cultural transformations with changes in the theoretical context according to the specific concerns of Lithuanian society. Also, this historical and philosophical examination aims to look at the formation of Lithuanian identity, mentality, values and its origination from Christian tradition and ability to respond to critical historical moments.
