In the present study the author, director of „mission studies and interreligious dialogue“, Saint Paul University, Ottawa, Canada, proposes a dialogue between human sciences and missiology. Thanks to a path opened by the French philosopher Michel Foucault, Mooren analyses the „pastoralized“ Western subject; the birth of the human sciences; how their constitution allows for a new vision of institutions like the Propaganda Fidei as well as of the Catholic China mission of the XVII/XVIII centuries. Throughout all this Mooren tackles that one question: why become a Christian at all?
