Abstract.

Some comments are offered to my respondents. Concerning Peterson, I suggest a rather distinct description of humanists as those who stress a differential character of human beings or some discontinuity with the rest of the reality, in contrast to naturalists; at the same time I try to cope with difficulties derived from theological “weakness” and pluralism. Concerning Westhelle, I recall the need to keep some boundaries and limits, despite all the positive outcomes of hybridity he proposes.
