Será necessário hoje uma teologia negativa?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This text is an approach to negative theology in the broader framework to which it relates: the apparent silence of God in the history of the world, and the drama of human existence which faces the frontiers of the enigma, of the mystery and even of the making no sense. Negative theology appears as an attitude of those who believe, but finds no adequate linguistic form to express the mystery, in the face of both the ineffability of God and his undeniable incomprehensibility, and the ineffability of the human condition. It not only proclaims linguistic limits before the ineffable immensity of the mystery of God, but also before humanity’s greatness and misery. Negative theology is another manner the theological question as an anthropological problem, and vice versa.
