On the absence and unknowability of God : Heidegger and the Areopagite by Chrēstos Giannaras( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, one of the earliest by Christos Yannaras, was first published in 1967 and has become a contemporary classic. Yannaras begins by outlining Heidegger's analysis of the fate of western metaphysics, which ends, he argues, in a nihilistic atheism. Yannaras's response is largely to accept Heidegger's analysis, but to argue that, although it applies to the western tradition of what Heidegger calls 'onto theology' (which regards God as a 'being', even if the highest), it does not take account of the Orthodox tradition of apophatic theology, of which Dionysius the Areopagite is a pre-eminent example." "A God 'beyond being' escapes the criticism of Heidegger, and provides an alternative to Heidegger's ninilistic conclusion."--Jacket

"Christos Yannaras's book is an important contribution to the theology/science debate. It offers a respectable alternative to creationist resistance to materialistic evolutionism. It shows how spiritual reality transcends the categories of chance and necessity that materialists believe can explain everything. It argues passionately for the priority of relationality and reciprocity, the spiritual dimension through which we can discover God's causality and so enter into personal relation with him."--Jacket

Christos Yannaras is a philosopher, theologian, and political thinker widely regarded as one of the most important Orthodox thinkers of the twentieth century. He sees theology along with philosophy not as an academic enterprise, but as a serious approach to reality in all the dimensions vital to life today. A controversial figure, he castigates much of what passes for Christianity in the East as well as in the West, calling it a religionization of faith. In this book he responds to searching questions concerning his work, setting his thinking as a whole in an integrated vision of knowledge, truth, relationship, and salvation. --! From back cover
