dc.description Karl Rahner affirmed that, methodologically, practical science should be atheistic. This cannot be truer in our time, when science is making giant progressive strides every day, solving serious problems, helping to affirm human autonomy and independence from the absolute, and consciously or unconsciously deleting from mental categories every reference to the miraculous. This situation calls for a reworking of a possible and enduring reconnection of practical science with theology, so that the methodological atheism of practical science does not become a manner of living, and so that the seeming dumbness of religion before the ever-advancing practical science does not transform itself into an intellectual unproductivity. The author proposes a hypostatic model for a return to a fruitful relationship between the two disciplines.
