"The relation of man, especially Homeric man, to God is naturally dialogical (and prayerful); reason - on its solitary search for 'Being as a whole' - and philosophical man - the man of reason - are monological. The beginning of philosophy marks the 'abrupt' end of the 'dialogical act of prayer.' A 'knowledge that keeps itself to itself' replaces the 'heart that dares risk itself.'"
