[Avodah] God’s existence

Wanted to bounce an idea off of you all.
I’m doing an ongoing class in Rambam’s Hilchot Yesodei Hatorah
We compared the Rambam’s concept of “knowing” (cognitively) Of God’s existence with Rav Lichtenstein’s Source of Faith piece which focuses on experience.
It seems to me that there was a fundamental paradigm shift (as defined by Thomas Kuhn) probably with the enlightenment and scientific revolution et al
In thinking about it I would say in general that the traditional yeshiva beit medrash approach ( as articulated by the Rav) does not look at paradigm shift but independent continuity of a unique discipline of halachic man yet here it seems to have taken place
I’m not sure that came out as clearly as I might’ve liked but I hope you get the general idea. Thoughts?
