The scientific character of theology was generally safeguarded by the demand that theology should have a sound philosophical foundation. This still holds true today. The result of this demand is presented here by means of a general overview of the influence of philosophy on theology since the Aufklarung. This is followed by an example of a structuralist exegesis, highlighting the various philosophic, linguistic and psychological motives active in this process. Thirdly, the question about the reliability of scientific knowledge is raised against the background of the modern trend towards relativism. The article concludes with a few guidelines - both negative and positive - for reformed theology.
