Emergence and new concepts of God – example from the Old Testament
MetadataShow full item record
In this article, the author looks at “emergence” in the context of new concepts of God in the Old Testament. Within biblical scholarship, various types of emergence are alluded to in various methodological reductions, i.e. via theological, historical-comparative, sociological and literary-critical approaches to the text. From a philosophical perspective on the Old Testament as a complex system, however, emergent properties of YHWH are instantiated in the paraconsistent logic operative in fictional discourse.
