Resumo: O presente artigo visa estender o diálogo a respeito da fé e do aprendizado ao espaço das universidades públicas norte-americanas onde a fé, particularmente, é problematizada pela natureza secular de tais instituições. O autor argumentará que se faz necessário que a universidade mantenha uma postura curiosa sobre o papel das convicções religiosas no ensino e na aprendizagem de seus docentes e discentes, de forma que a mesma possa melhor apreciar o valor da contribuição distinta dos cristãos no seu espaço pluralístico e democrático. O autor oferece um breve relato dos importantes desenvolvimentos históricos relacionados ao modelo de integração (integration model) da fé com o aprendizado, considerando as implicações do mesmo à luz dos costumes e tradições da academia norte-americana. Por fim, uma proposta modesta será articulada por meio da qual os cristãos possam vivenciar suas convicções religiosas enquanto membros de instituições seculares de ensino superior.

Palavras-chave: estudo e aprendizado cristão, integração da fé com o aprendizado, liberdade acadêmica, universidades seculares norte-americanas

 

Abstract: The present article seeks to extend the dialogue about faith and learning to the space of American public universities where faith, in particular, is problematized by the secular nature of such institutions. The author shall argue that universities should maintain a curious posture about the role of religious convictions in the teaching and learning of their scholars and students, so that they may better appreciate the value of the distinct contributions of Christians in their pluralistic and democratic spaces. The author offers a brief account of the important historical developments of the integration model of faith and learning, while considering the implications of the model in light of the customs and traditions of the American academy. Finally, a modest proposal shall be articulated by which Christians may live their religious convictions while members of these secular institutions of higher learning.

Key words: Christian scholarship, integration of faith and learning, academic freedom, American secular universities
