'Emergentist Theism' as a Panentheistic Thread Within Traditional Theism - Seeking for a God-World Unity

Full Product Description

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Theologie - Systematische Theologie, -, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Transdisciplinarity is possible only by developing a common meta-level for all disciplines involved.

The fifths part gives an introduction into the philosophical and theological monism. By the first I mean the conception of deriving of the many from one principle, by the letter the view of the emergence of creatures from God through Logos. In this conception, which I call 'the emergentist theism', God is not 'outside' but within the creat
