Working at the borderlands of philosophy and theology, in this study Jeffrey Privette thinks theologically about epistemology and ecclesiology, both within the context of the realism versus antirealism debate and with sustained reference to the logic of the incarnation.
Working at the borderlands of philosophy and theology, Jeffrey Privette thinks theologically about epistemology, both within the context of the realism versus antirealism debate, and with sustained reference to the incarnation. His study is divided into three parts: the first and second deal with the role of language and interpretation in experience generally, as well as with some of the curious philosophical problems foreshadowed by the predicament of language. Here, he offers a novel interpretation of Kant's transcendental distinction, which, when fully developed, serves as a rich resource for theologies working consciously in the Christian tradition. With the foundation of the argument in place, the third part fleshes out the logic of the incarnation within the context of the life of incarnate Christian communities, and so considers the complex relation of language and language-practices to Christian experience.
