Pope Recomends the Study of Temporanious and Fashionable Theories

Germany.  The world is rationalistic and scientific today, even if it is also "often falsely scientific".  Pope Benedict XVI. said this in a free discussion for seminarians in the Freiburg's seminary.  The Holy Father encouraged the seminarians to study: "Naturally in twenty years, there will be completely different philosophical theories in fashion than today:  even when I think, what was so important to us then,  how all of those most modern fashions are all but forgotten nowadays."  It is apparently, "not for nothing, never the less, to learn these, "because there is also more lasting knowledge therein."  Apparently, one learns how "mainly to evaluate, follow along -- and follow along critically."
