Transcendence in Metaxology and Sophiology

  • Josephien van Kessel
Chapter

Abstract

Discussions on this topic of relating God to the world have been a mainstay in philosophical theology, for instance, between the Russian authors Shestov and Solov’ëv. In discussion with Desmond’s discussion of these authors in Is There a Sabbath for Thought? Josephien van Kessel proposes that there is far greater similarity between the Sophiology of Solov’ëv (and Bulgakov) and Desmond’s metaxology.
