This chapter investigates the question of the theological generation of meaning, which is a process of sublimation. It provides an understanding of creation ex nihilo from a confrontation of Lacan and Tillich. A confrontation emerges out of a contrast between Tillich and Žižek in their respective readings of Schelling, and the chapter provides a reading of the second draft of Schelling's Ages of the World. The psycho-theological concept of creation ex nihilo at the center of the book functions as an axis around which the other essays on previous chapters partially pivot. The end of the chapter confronts Tillich and Schelling directly with Lacan on the concept of creation.

Keywords:   creation ex nihilo, Lacan, Tillich, Žižek, Schelling, Ages of the World, creation, sublimation
