Nature and Spirit: An Essay in Ecstatic Naturalism by Robert Corrington

By Robert Corrington

Unline extra descriptive naturalisms, reminiscent of these by way of Dewey, Santayana, and Buchler, ecstatic naturalism works out of the basic ontological distinction among nature naturing(natura naturans) and nature natured (natura naturata).

The correlation of the potencies of nature, that are presemiotic and preordinal, wit the orders of the realm itself, is feasible basically via an ordinal phenomenology that continues to be attuned to the elemental distinction among nature naturing (the potencies) and nature natured (the orders of the world). ultimately, the textual content redefines the divine natures within the gentle of an ecstatic naturalism that sees god as an order in the global that studies the fragmented caliber of nature. technique theology is challenged for its lack of ability to know the tensions among god and the encircling. 4 divine natures are laid naked as they relate to nature and to one another. The paintings concludes with an outline of the divine lifestyles within the face of the encircling.
