By utilizing the Kuhnian theory of scientific revolutions but going beyond it to include the social and ecclesial contexts of theology―the broader historical and social realities neglected by Kuhn―this work contends that Latin American liberation theology constitutes a shift in theological paradigms. Three aspects of the cognitive nature of the liberation paradigm are discussed: theology as critical reflection on praxis, theology addressed to non-persons, and theology of and for liberation. The book advances a sociological understanding of theological knowledge.
