(p.185) Questions to and from a Tradition in Disarray
After God

Joseph S O'Leary

Fordham University Press

This chapter begins by addressing the lost confidence in the reality of God as the creator of heaven and earth. It presents the varying notions of God. In view of these postmodern phenomena, many lay the blame on who have followed Heidegger in calling for an “overcoming of metaphysics” in theology. Then it holds that the crisis of classical metaphysical theism can be handled in two ways — by a revisionist metaphysics that attempts to do more justice to the nature of reality as apprehended in contemporary science, or by an existential phenomenology nourished by a hermeneutics of religious traditions. Meanwhile, Kearney has identified the major threat to theistic belief today in what postmodern thinkers call the khora. This notion, derived from Plato's Timaeus, has become the emblem of the postmodern vision, or lack of vision.

Keywords:   metaphysics, theology, khora, Plato, Timaeus, existential phenomenology, God, Richard Kearney
