Neo-Barthians think this is Antichrist.

I hold to some version of this.

    Does this require an ontotheological approach? I’ve flirted with, but turned away from merely God is Being/Fount of being. I think DB Hart is able to appreciate the best of the analogia entis while evading ontotheology and maintaining the ‘hyperousia’ of the East. I’d be curious if you readdress this idea at some point.

    What is the relation between the analogia entis and the archetype-ectype distinction? Are they antithetical or complementary?


    • JB Aitken says:

      Complementary. Analogy implies dissimilarity as much as similarity. My confusion on this was that I equated analogia with chain of being, but that was wrong.


      • Evan says:

        Interesting. I, too, had been under the impression that it implied some sort of chain of being.

        Jacob, do you still deny a chain of being ontology?


  3. JB Aitken says:

    In the sense that God and creation are on the same continuum of being, yes I reject chain of being.
