Close Preview. Toggle navigation Additional Book Information. Description Reviews. Summary Is knowing a purely passive reception of something concrete outside the mind, or when we know something, are we creating something too? Spanning more than years of philosophical enquiry from the Middle Ages to the present day, Robert Miner clarifies modern philosophical conceptions of knowing as making or constructing, and contrasts this view with the theological understanding of knowing as a participation in divine creation.

IS JOHN MILBANK'S RADICAL ORTHODOXY A FORM OF LIBERAL THEOLOGY? A RHETORICAL COUNTER
About this product Synopsis IN this star-studded cross-genre anthology, seventeen of the greatest modern authors of fantasy, science fiction, and romance explore the borderlands of their genres with brand-new tales of ill-fated love. From zombie-infested woods in a postapocalyptic America to faery-haunted rural fields in eighteenth- century England, from the kingdoms of high fantasy to the alien world of a galaxy-spanning empire, these are stories of lovers who must struggle against the forces of magic and fate.
Award-winning, bestselling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he's one of the hottest stars in literature today with "The Thing About Cassandra," a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see. New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher presents "Love Hurts," in which Harry Dresden takes on one of his deadliest adversaries and in the process is forced to confront the secret desires of his own heart. Just the smallest sampling promises unearthly delights, but look also for stories by New York Times bestselling romance authors Jo Beverley and Mary Jo Putney, and by such legends of the fantasy genre as Peter S.

Beagle and Tanith Lee, as well as many other popular and beloved writers, including Marjorie M. This exquisite anthology, crafted by the peerless editing team of George R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, is sure to leave you under its spell. Spanning more than years of philosophical enquiry from the Middle Ages to the present day, Robert Miner clarifies modern philosophical conceptions of knowing as making or constructing, and contrasts this view with the theological understanding of knowing as a participation in divine creation.
It explores the multiple ways in which this idea influenced the architects of modern philosophy, most notably Francis Bacon, Rene Descartes and Thomas Hobbes, despite their secular stance.
Truth In The Making: Creative knowledge in theology and philosophy
Miner contends that, well in advance of Kant, one of these thinkers, Gaimbattista Vico provided a remarkably succinct formulation of the metaphysical and epistemological core of modernity in his principle verum et factum convertuntur: 'the true and the made are convertible'. In Truth in the Making, Robert Miner challenges the standard assumption that Kant was the first thinker to conceive of knowing as constructive activity, and shows how contemporary theology can reclaim a concept of knowing that is both creative and participant in divine wisdom.
Showing the intimacy of this problematic to the work of Nicholas of Cusa, Bacon, Galileo, Descartes, Hobbes, Leibniz, Vico and David Lachterman, the book reveals how questions about creation apparently diluted by secularism in fact retain much of their potency today.
If science could counterfeit or synthesize nature precisely from its smallest nuts and bolts, as Descartes and Hobbes implied and as modern science increasingly suggests, would it create an identical world to that we live in now Robert C. Miner offers a precise genealogy of modern thought on truth and creation: from medieval theology's identification of human creativity with divine initiative to the radical Leibnizian contention that human ideas are 'not little copies of God's', and may at once exceed mimesis and produce things new,unpredictable and unseen.
He considers how the theological importance given to creation interacts historically with the secularisation and instrumentalisation of modes of discovery and method, and asks how knowledge is understood between different disciplines, from the allegorical discipline of poetry to the constructible field of mathematics. The book is an eloquent reminder of the ways in which theology continues to fling a wild card at philosophical understandings of reality, countering theories of metaphysical equivalence of the 'real' and 'artificial' with theologies in which human making is always fallible, and strives only for approximate participation in divine truth.
As a strenuous and informative breakdown of leading theories of knowledge,Truth in the Makingshows the continuing influence of theological questions upon philosophical, scientific and aesthetic disciplines, whilst raising topical questions about the ultimate nature of our reality and our freedom to modify and define it.

Truth in the Making: Knowledge and Creation in Modern Philosophy and Theology by Robert C. Miner
Although Truth in the Making offers useful expositions of important thinkers, the book fails to deliver a convincing argument that the secular view of creativity is necessarily negative. Would relativity be a better theory if invented by a Christian? Are secular artworks automatically worse than those produced by Christians?
Whether we look in science, or the arts, or in society, the intellectual achievements of secular creativity since the Enlightenment have been massive and often benevolent. This means that prayer is the most natural of all human activities. God waits to see what names Adam will invent for the beasts that are brought before him.
Because language is always trying to welcome the world in word and symbol, the essence of language is hospitality.
