This chapter discusses Kearney's search for the middle way. In his efforts at negotiating and reconnoitering a third way, Kearney has written a trilogy, Philosophy at the Limit, developing in Ricoeurian fashion a hermeneutics of critical discernment and narrative imagination dealing with limit situations of death, deity, sublimity, trauma, and terror. The discussion begins with Kearney's basic wager that God as May Be is much closer than the old deity of metaphysics and scholasticism to the God of desire and promise of the scriptural narratives. The chapter suggests that his Ricouerian strategy of narrative imagination needs not so much supplementation as a radicalization in accord with its own internal dynamic. Kearney's Ricoeurian theme is evident at the end of the third book, where he summarizes his project: that people are beings at the limit, and that people are beings who narrate.
