  • Levinas’ God: Ethical Horizon, Political Necessity

    • Authors: Joël Madore
      Abstract: The idea of God in Levinas is resonant of the First Testament: a voice from
      higher above that clamors: Thou shall not kill; the unsettling call of the Infinite
      that commands us to leave the familiar towards the unknown, like “Abraham’s
      journey who left alone, towards all—from particularity to universality—under
      the threat of nights and the hope of days, in the words of Maurice Blanchot.
      Hard, long path of justice.”1 God in Levinas thus echoes the Kantian practical
      postulates, framing the ethical injunction as both divine and unquestionable, and
      will constitute his answer to the imperative of Auschwitz. Though necessary, the
      law of the State is insufficient to resist the violence of tyranny. Ultimately, the
      sanction against murder is enforced by God, the Invisible made visible through
      the face of the Other. As such, justice for Levinas consists not only in serving the
      latter, but to do so unconditionally because he opens up to the divine. Ethics is
      thus articulated as the movement towards an Other who reveals an absolute
      difference alone capable of interrupting the homogenizing impulses of politics.

  • Nietzsche and the Idea of God: Is God Good or Bad for your Psychological

    • Authors: David Leo Tracey
      Abstract: Nietzsche tells us that he is more interested in the idea of God than in God as
      such. The idea of God is not a mind-independent entity; it is a human idea. He
      writes: “In former times, one sought to prove that there is no God—today one
      indicates how the belief that there is a God could arise and how this belief
      acquired its weight and importance.”1 He continues, “The ‘kingdom of heaven’ is
      a state of the heart—not something lying ‘above the earth’ or coming ‘after
      death.’”2 And finally, “the kingdom of God does not ‘come’ chronologicallyhistorically,
      on a certain day … it is an ‘inward change in the individual.’”3 As
      one commentator writes, Nietzsche asks “a series of questions that concern the
      religious man, not religion itself.”4 Whether or not one believes in God, the fact
      that people do believe in God is still a phenomenon in the world for which we
      must account. Nietzsche’s question is not ‘does God exist'’ It is: why do people
      believe in God, and what insight does this yield into human psychology' Under
      the influence of Feuerbach, he answers that “religion can be exhaustively
      accounted for by the psychology of error,”5 and he demonstrates how basic
      human psychology accounts for the idea of God. Hence, if naturalism is an
      attempt to account for phenomena without reference to the supernatural, then
      showing that human psychology accounts for the idea of a supernatural God is a
      quintessential instance of naturalism: the idea of God has its origins in nature.

  • On Kant On the Idea(s) of God

    • Authors: Garth W. Green
      Abstract: In the following essay, I consider the character, and implications, of the idea of God in Kant’s theoretical philosophy. I first consider the idea (or rather, ‘ideal’) of God in the Critique of Pure Reason, in which it is first established within the systematic structure of Kant’s critical philosophy. In this context, I show that Kant recognized, depicted, and subjected to critique not one, but two such ideas or concepts of God: to evince this point, I examine the more thorough treatment of the concept of God contained in the Lectures on the Philosophical Doctrine of Religion. I then suggest that the full significance of this critique can be comprehended by tracing its effects across the series of texts that constitutes Kant’s philosophy of religion as a unified whole. Herein, I cannot accomplish such a synoptic view: the positive (practical) position of the “postulates” of God and the soul in the Critique of Practical Reason, and the “definition of the concept of religion” in Religion within the Limits of Reason Alone, for example, will not be considered. Herein, I focus on the Conflict of the Faculties, through which late text I hope to advance a more ample critical context for this, Kant’s redefinition and reposition of the (theological) idea of God, in both an intellectual and an institutional acceptation. While in the Critique of Pure Reason, Kant attacks rational theology as such, in the Conflict of the Faculties he attacks the rational and biblical theologian, and the place thereof both in an intra- and an extrauniversity economy. This application, then, evinces the significance of Kant’s idea of God as an element not only of his philosophy of religion narrowly construed, but also as an element of his philosophy of culture more broadly construed. In conclusion, I reflect on the importance of this second, broad acceptation of Kant’s philosophy of religion for contemporary work in the field.

  • Ars moriendi: Of course, I must polish my shoes

    • Authors: Mario O. D’Souza
      Abstract: I first found out that I have cancer, and the level of its severity and advanced stage,
      on the 11th of July, 2017. I had some symptoms like shortness of breath and
      fatigue, but I attributed them to a pill that I was taking, and which could produce
      similar side-effects. Subsequent visits to the doctors show that it is in its final stage.

  • Augustine’s ‘Si comprehendis, non est Deus’ – To what extent is
           God incomprehensible'

    • Authors: Jean Grondin
      Abstract: The idea of God is one from which contemporary philosophy, to say nothing of
      Western society at large, seems to have turned away from or replaced by other
      quests. There is however no greater and more vital subject than the idea of God.
      It is essential because it is difficult to see how life can have an overriding
      meaning if there is no God. Or, as Ivan Karamazov puts it in Dostoyevsky’s
      novel, if there is no God, all hell breaks loose. For philosophers and inquiring
      minds, God also happens to be one of the most cogent answers to the question as
      to why there is Being and not nothing. There is little to be gained by looking
      down on such an answer, which was revered as the highest Good in all cultures
      and epochs.

  • The Idea of God: On the Divine Names

    • Authors: Peter Harris
      Abstract: In this paper I intend to look at a debate arising in the early Middle Ages
      which focused on the divine names. The topic was so formulated in the 6th
      century by the writer who came to be known as the “pseudo-Dionysius” who was
      in fact a theological writer in the neo-Platonic tradition in the early 6th century
      whose theological/mystical writings were very influential in the 13th century
      theological debates. I will refer to him simply as Dionysius. Among his writings
      is a work titled On the divine Names—St Thomas Aquinas wrote a detailed
      commentary on this book and came to differ from him not in the commentary but
      in his own writing in the Summa Theologiae. I am assuming consequently that
      this discussion should cast some light on the question as to how we should both
      think and speak about God.

  • Populism and the Late Schelling on Mythology, Ideology, and Revelation

    • Authors: Sean McGrath
      Abstract: Revelation according to Schelling is not the possession of any institutional
      form of Christianity; it is not even bound to faith or confession. Rather,
      revelation disseminates itself freely and universally throughout history. It
      now inextricably permeates modernity. Schelling’s Philosophy of
      Revelation does not look backwards to an event in the first century of the
      common era, it looks forward to the genuine singularity, the moment when
      humanity will become adequate to the divine subjectivity which lives in it,
      that is, the penultimate eschaton proclaimed by Paul and the author or the
      Book of Revelation, the age of righteousness prior to the general
      resurrection.1 By bringing mythological consciousness to an end and
      drawing real limits to rationalism (idealism), revelation first establishes a
      free relation of the human being to the divine. At the same time, revelation
      liberates philosophy and culture from religion and inaugurates secular
      consciousness. History, according to the late Schelling, which he
      undeniably reads Eurocentrically, is moving toward this third age of
      revelation (after Catholicism and Protestantism), in which all of humanity
      will pass over into absolute or true monotheism (Trinitarianism). With the
      universalization of the revelation, the free and philosophical appropriation
      of its content (what Schelling somewhat misleadingly calls “philosophical
      religion”), all historical forms of religion will be overcome, including, it
      should be added, all historical forms of institutional Christianity. The
      complete secularization of the world will be achieved, and the sundered human community unified, without expense of historical or cultural diversity.

  • Charles Taylor’s Modern Identity and the “Atonement

    • Authors: James Gerrie
      Abstract: In Charles Taylor’s exhaustive study of the historical currents that have helped
      constitute the modern identity he proposes the notion of “the affirmation of
      ordinary life” as a way of encapsulating the core of that identity. As he states in
      Sources of the Self, “ordinary life is a term of art I introduce to designate those
      aspects of human life concerned with production, that is, labour, the making of
      things needed for life, and our life as sexual beings, including marriage and the
      family.”1 According to Taylor, this aspect of the modern identity gives rise to a
      new sense of the almost inestimable value of individuals and their quotidian
      existence. This modern sense of identity is informed by a combination of a
      theistic vision of a created natural order and an ideal of disengaged scientific
      reasoning as a way of exploring that order, and also a sense of the ultimate value
      of people and their dignity as moral agents.

  • The Ideas of God and Self Within a Phenomenology of Body

    • Authors: Michelle Rebidoux
      Abstract: Were I to give this paper a subtitle, it would be: “Revisiting the metaphor of the
      body as house”; and if I were to give it a sub-subtitle, it would be: “The back
      door, the front door, the bedroom, and the hole in the roof.” In the end I decided
      not to add these sub-titles, not only for the sake of sheer titular manageability (if I
      may put it that way), but also because, in doing so, a certain dualism of body and
      soul or spirit1 might be thereby evoked. Of course, the image of the house as a
      metaphor for the body⎯a house in which the soul or the spirit dwells, in which
      perhaps it is even trapped⎯is a familiar one within the Western tradition.
      Nevertheless, I will be appealing here to the metaphor of the body as a house in
      the attempt to articulate an idea of God and of the self from within a
      phenomenology of the body⎯and in doing so, precisely challenging any such
      dualism. To begin with, by “body” I intend the lived body, bound up in some way
      with an ipseic phenomenality, itself inseparable from the “sensual” awareness of
      itself⎯and, of course, the word “sensual,” or “sensuality,” is what precisely is
      going to be at issue in revisiting the metaphor. Indeed, in the phenomenological
      literature of recent decades, the word “flesh” is often used to distinguish this
      ipseic and somehow “sensual” self-awareness from the merely objective body
      appearing in the world, one object among others, capable of being an object, to
      some extent, even for the soul or self that “inhabits” it.2 To that extent, if any
      dualism is to be identified here, it is less that of body and soul or spirit than that
      of “lived body” and “objective body” or “body object.”

  • Review of Riccardo Saccenti’s Debating Medieval Natural Law: A Survey
           (Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press, 2016)

    • Authors: Peter Karl Koritansky
      Abstract: In this short monograph, Riccardo Saccenti surveys the various and
      competing interpretations of natural law and natural right from the late
      Middle Ages through the modern period. As “a survey,” the intention of this
      book is not so much to advance and defend a central thesis about natural law,
      but rather to paint a picture of how the various interpreters of natural law
      have responded to the most important primary texts (of Gratian, Thomas
      Aquinas, Duns Scotus, William of Ockham, and John Locke, for example)
      and to one another. One of the issues with which Saccenti is most concerned
      is the transition from the medieval understanding of natural law inspired by
      an Aristotelian concept of nature to a modern theory of natural individual
      rights. Where exactly does this transition begin and where is it more or less
      consummated' A reader of this book will be impressed by the complexity of
      this debate (among others) and the nuances of difference between its
      participants. Saccenti’s account of it succeeds in exposing the folly of overly
      simplistic readings of intellectual history that are ideologically motivated,
      and reminds us what a careful reading of primary and secondary sources can
