THEO 7667 Theology and the Mystical Turn (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This seminar explores the wide-ranging apophatic mood in contemporary thought and the diverse ways mystical theology has come to occupy a central role in recent reflection upon God. In addition to examining the emphasis upon "difference," "absence," and "otherness" among key philosophical and theological voices, the seminar inquires into the relationship between negative theology and the incarnation, as this relationship uniquely characterizes Christian apophasis.
