God After Metaphysics
Full Product Description
While philosophy believes it is impossible to have an experience of Godwithout the senses, theology claims that such an experience is possible, thoughpotentially idolatrous. In this engagingly creative book, John PanteleimonManoussakis ends the impasse by proposing an aesthetic allowing for a sensuousexperience of God that is not subordinated to imposed categories or concepts.Manoussakis draws upon the theological traditions of the Eastern Church, includingpatristic and liturgical resources, to build a theological aesthetic founded on theinverted gaze of icons, the augmented language of hymns, and the reciprocity oftouch. Manoussakis explores how a relational interpretation of being develops afuller and more meaningful view of the phenomenology of religious experience beyondmetaphysics and onto-theology.
