Introduction to Negative Theology

  • Wesley J. Wildman


From a very particular angle of view, attempting to talk about ultimate reality is just plain silly. I do not refer to the perspective furnished by critiques of religion as a kind of fantasy discourse. Rather I refer to a religious and theological perspective affirming that ultimate reality, whatever else it may be, must be beyond human cognitive grasp.
