“God’s Acting upon the World” – A Meta-metaphysical Perspective

  • Christina Schneider LMU Munich and Hochschule für Philosophie
Keywords: classical theism, alternative theisms, acting, coherence, meta-meta-physics


There may be good theological reasons for adopting one or the other of the two “God-world”-relations: “God’s acting upon the world” vs. “God’s not acting upon the world”, from a philosophical/metaphysical point of view, these options pose a “decision-problem”. The article is in search for metaphysical criteria that support any decision on behalf of “God’s acting vs. His not acting upon the world”. In this, it is meta-metaphysical in character.
