David Tracy

Christian Sheppard

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents David Tracy's views on the possibility of God when he was interviewed by Christian Sheppard. The exchange focuses on Tracy's new book The God Who May Be: A Hermeneutics of Religion. The discussion reflects on Tracy's views of Kearney and of the present debate on the category of the Impossible for speaking of God. Tracy notes that there are two predecessors of this debate: Angelus Silesius and Kierkegaard writing under the pseudonym Johannes de Silentio, and that it is Derrida who has most fruitfully reread for people the crucial fragments from their texts. The chapter concludes by stating the difference between Tracy's God and the God who May Be.
