Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Is there any way to talk theologically about the Trinity and place? What might the "placedness" of creation have to do with God's triunity? In The Place of the Spirit , Sarah Morice-Brubaker considers how anxieties about place have influenced Trinitarian theology--both what it is asked to do and the language in which it is expressed. When one is nervous about collapsing God into created horizons, she suggests, one is apt to come up with a model of trinity that refuses place. Distance becomes a primary way of situating the divine persons in relation to each other. Conversely, those theologians who wish to avoid a too-remote God likewise recruit Trinitarian language to suit that purpose. They, too, give that language a placial gloss, expressing triunity in terms of coinherence and mutual indwelling. And yet, suggests Morice-Brubaker, the question, "What is place, and how can one talk about God and place?" is underdetermined within much contemporary Trinitarian thought. Thankfully, this question has received full-on attention in other areas of ethics, philosophy, and systematic theology. This book calls for Trinitarian thought to avail itself of those insights and offers some ways in which it may do so. ". Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1610978889

Inhaltsangabe:

'The Place of the Spirit' is through and through a constructive work. It brings together a representative sample of thinkers of place, none of whom are theological in the strict sense, and asks the question whether, and if so how, this thinking can be brought productively to bear on Trinitarian thought and correspondingly whether, and if so in what way, Trinitarian thought can shed unexpected light on placial theories. Towards this end, Sarah Morice-Brubaker inserts the placial theories of Martin Heidegger and Edward Casey, Gaston Bachelard and Yi-Fu Tuan in two interlocking conversations. The first conversation is with patristic Trinitarian theology, more specifically the Trinitarian theology of the Cappadocian Fathers and Augustine; the second conversation is with the very developed Trinitarian thought of Jurgen Moltmann and with the somewhat underdeveloped Trinitarian thought of Jean-Luc Marion. The two conversations are interlocking in that while the patristic authors are at a relative disadvantage to their modern and post-modern successor who have available to them conceptual distinctions between 'place' and 'space' which play a central role in placial theory, Morice-Brubaker has no compunction about critically deploying figures such Basil and Augustine against either Moltmann or Marion as the need arises. The author concludes with some 'Notes toward a Trinitarian Theology of Place'.
