Week 6: The Theological Atheists
This week we discover yet another type of negative theology, one more radical and far reaching that the previous two. If we think of theology as a discipline dedicated to exploring and protecting the realm of the transcendental, then the theological atheism of the thinkers we look at this week continues in that tradition.
Each movement we have looked at thus far takes up, debates with and feeds off what came before it. The thinkers this week are working with what has gone before. Here the transcendent is not understood as that which is beyond our world, nor as that which precedes our world. But as the cracks and openings within our world.
