Tillich and Schelling

(p.97) 6 Ages of the World and Creation ex Nihilo, Part I
Interstices of the Sublime

Fordham University Press

This chapter focuses on Tillich's appropriation of Schelling for his theology and begins the task of unraveling Schelling's Ages of the World. It attempts to wrest significance out of the sublime depth of unconscious will, which is neither simply material nor simply immaterial, but is at once both and neither. Creation is a struggle for meaning that takes place out of nothing, or out of its own nothingness. Nothingness is already potentially pregnant with meaning, and that meaning takes the form of thought as well as body.

Keywords:   Tillich, Schelling, theology, Ages of the World, creation ex nihilo, sublime, unconscious will, creation, nothingness
