Light from Light: Cosmology and the Theology of the Logos

Product Description

In Light from Light, a volume from the Emerging Scholars series, Judith Corey explores the history of the long-held relationship between cosmology and theology, from ancient prescientific and theological explanations through contemporary science and philosophy. Corey highlights the prevalence of dualism throughout this history—from Aristotelian philosophy to modern mechanistic conceptions, many of these accounts presume a sharp, absolute dichotomy between matter and spirit, and the material world and the divine.

The author argues that a particular trajectory stemming from Greek Heraclitian and Platonic philosophy to nonorthodox and early Christian theologies provides a fruitful resource for contemporary discussions. This is the Logos theology and its attendant language of light. The author brings this tradition into dialogue with contemporary science and theology to construct an integrative account.
