The question concerning the decline of language and the silence of God cannot avoid the complex issues in contemporary philosophy concerning the possibility that language offers to speak of the divine. Analytical philosophers, reflecting the Linguistic Turn of thought in the 20th Century, have delved into the problematic. But it is hermeneutical philosophy and its concern to overcome the forgetting of the ontological that the problem of the decline of language is directly conjugated with the poetics reflecting the emergence of beings and its potential religious meaning. However, the greatest obstacle in breaking through to a fuller sense of the divine resides in the nominalism that implicitly dominates modern and contemporary philosophy. Relearning to think analogically will imply the discerning of the more original theological expression of Being and the rehabilitation of a realist metaphysics based on participation and the contiguous relation between the real and the Logos.
