>Some thoughts on Apophatic Theology

Posted: 14/05/2009 in Uncategorized

>Recently I was thinking about apophatic theology. There is, after all, a strong historical tradition that teaches that God cannot be spoken of by affirmations. In other words, on cannot speak positively of God. There has been a lot of ink spilled on this subject. Whole volumes have been written on God’s ineffability.

I have decided to add a small contribution to this tradition in my blog. What follows is carefully thought out, and what I feel is the most consistent presentation of apophatic theology.

Thanks for reading.
