Sample text

They relegate God's acting to a process in the sphere of nature that can be explained in terms of causality.

Kant's Critique of Pure Reason has the purpose of examining presuppositions of this position, to subject it to a critique and thus to make it unattackable. However, in his Critique, Kant left three presuppositions unquestioned that are implied in the concept of pure reason. These are the idea of motionless identity (Parmenides), the eternal validity of the laws of logic (Aristotle), and the absolute priority of the subject (Descartes) (Cf. G. Picht, Der Begriff der Natur und seine Geschi 316f).

The Greeks interpreted reality in a different horizon from that of causality; they attained a highly complex view of history, and it is impossible to say that their perspective was false. A perspective becomes false only if one absolutizes it and ignores that it is correlated to a specific horizon. The Greek notion of physis is incompatible with the concept of space of the causal continuum. 32 We will, in the following, not question the reign of causal law in biblical days. We are not going to claim that in acting as creator God repeals the laws of nature.
