Barth on Negative Theology


Sorry, I’ve been absent as of late. I’ve been busy finishing up a paper for school, and recuperating from the busy month of blogging in February. I’m still on track in Church Dogmatics, and I’m really beginning to enjoy CD II. Here’s a critique of negative theology that immediately made me think of Derrida.

“Again, we can not flee from the hiddenness of God into the possibility of a negative comprehensibility, as if this were less our own human comprehensibility than a positive, and not just as incapable…The true God is the hidden God” (CD II/1, 193).
