9780521529617: God, the Mind's Desire: Reference, Reason and Christian Thinking (Cambridge Studies in Christian Doctrine)

How can human discourse refer meaningfully to a transcendent God? Paul Janz's book reconfigures this fundamental problem of Christian thinking as a twofold demand for integrity--integrity of reason and integrity of transcendence. It centers around an original yet faithful re-reading of Kant's empirical realism. Drawing on MacKinnon, Bonhoeffer, Barth and Marion, Janz challenges recent rushes to obscurantism and radicalization and culminates in a convergence between Christology and epistemology within empirical reality.

Book Description:

'How can human discourse refer meaningfully to a transcendent God?' Paul Janz's book reconfigures this fundamental problem of Christian thinking as a twofold demand for integrity: integrity of reason and integrity of transcendence. It centres around a fresh yet faithful re-reading of Kant's empirical realism formulated against a wide-ranging backdrop of current concerns, and argues for the preservation of integrity on both fronts. Drawing on MacKinnon, Bonhoeffer, Barth and Marion, it challenges recent rushes to obscurantism and radicalization and culminates in a convergence between Christology and epistemology within empirical reality.

About the Author:

Paul D. Janz is Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Trinity Western University, Canada.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This 2004 book reconfigures the basic problem of Christian thinking - How can human discourse refer meaningfully to a transcendent God? - as a twofold demand for integrity: integrity of reason and integrity of transcendence. Centring around a provocative yet penetratingly faithful re-reading of Kant s empirical realism, and drawing on an impelling confluence of contemporary thinkers (including MacKinnon, Bonhoeffer, Marion, Putnam, Nagel) Paul D. Janz argues that theology s referent must be located within present empirical reality. Rigorously reasoned yet refreshingly accessible throughout, this book provides an important, attentively informed alternative to the growing trends toward obscurantism, radicalization and anti-reason in many recent assessments of theological cognition, while remaining equally alert to the hazards of traditional metaphysics. In the book s culmination, epistemology and Christology converge around problems of noetic authority and orthodoxy with a kind of innovation, depth and straightforwardness that readers of theology at all levels of philosophical acquaintance will find illuminating.
