Metaphysics: The Creation of Hierarchy is a comprehensive and detailed study of individuation reveals the theological nature of metaphysics.
Adrian Pabst argues that ancient and modern conceptions of "being" - or individual substance - fail to account for the ontological relations that bind beings to each other and to God, their source. On the basis of a genealogical account of rival theories of creation and individuation from Plato to 'postmodernism,' Pabst proposes that the Christian Neo-Platonic fusion of biblical revelation with Greco-Roman philosophy fulfills and surpasses all other ontologies and conceptions of individuality.
The result is a stunning new treatment of metaphysics and human ontology that promises to reorient the discussion around Christian theological expression.
