In a conversation with Wittgenstein and Dewi Z. Phillips' contemplative approach, Hartmut von Sass outlines an alternative beyond metaphysics and reduction which traces the discourse on God back to the place in which, in view of existential questions, it belongs: in the »language games of faith".
A sketch of the current doctrine of God could take the following form: On the one side are those who maintain that statements about God refer to facts and that these facts have a »robust« ontological meaning beyond this world. On the other side are those who have taken leave of this concept and who trace the discourse on God back to the expression of an attitude, of a state of consciousness or of a feeling. In his work, the author transforms this supposedly complete either/or into a neither/nor. In a conversation with Wittgenstein and Dewi Z. Phillips' contemplative approach, Hartmut von Sass outlines an alternative beyond metaphysics and reduction which traces the discourse on God back to the place in which, in view of existential questions, it belongs: in the »language games of faith".
