This chapter examines the works of Richard Kearney, focusing on his The God Who May Be. This volume presents an attempt at a new itinerarium mentis in Deum, which Kearney claims to be both phenomenological and hermeneutical. An important point is Kearney's definition of the eschatological, which privileges a God who possibilizes the world from out of the future. In the introduction of the book, Kearney claims to develop a new hermeneutics of religion. The discussion notes three methodological pseudonyms of his philosophy of posse, in order to qualify his hermeneutics: dynamatology, metaxology, and metaphorology. At the end of The God Who May Be, which intends to open up a phenomenological and hermeneutical debate concerning theological issues of contemporary phenomenology, it reflects how we are to understand Kearney's paradoxical statement that “the phenomenon of the persona surpasses phenomenology altogether”.

Keywords:   The God Who May Be, phenomenology, posse, dynamatology, metaxology, metaphorology, hermeneutics, eschatology, Richard Kearney
