    Abstract Philosophy has taken a «practical turn». Metaphysics is no longer the privileged form of appearance and working frame of philosophy. The paradigm of praxis becomes generalized in contemporary society in conjunction with the so-called phenomenon of the «return of religion». It is from these facts and indications that the present article proposes to examine and critically evaluate the status of the religious and metaphysical approaches to theology, by detaching and isolating religion and metaphysics from theology, and to explore the potentialities of the mystagogical praxis of the Eastern Orthodox Church in its dogmatic presuppositions. The role of dogma, as well of logic, is clarified within the context of Orthodox theology, and the notion of the divine logoi is explored in correlation with its practical presuppositions. A brief critique of personalist philosophical theology is attempted and a confrontation with several contemporary philosophical tendencies is outlined.
