Two more bloggers have recently addressed the apophatic knowledge of God:
Fr Stephen Freeman, “I Really Can’t Say.”
Advancing, as we would expect, an Eastern perspective, Fr Stephen writes: “Apophaticism is a mystical approach to theology (and even to the world), in which participation becomes the primary means of cognition.”
It’s unclear to me how the reflections on dialectical rhetoric touches upon apophaticism, but perhaps someone might like to ask him to elaborate further.
Tom explains why he has become more sympathetic to the apophatic approach and along the way provides some great citations from Denys Turner.
