My understanding of Hegel’s influence on theology is a focus on the history of cultural thought. I introduce “cultural” since attention is directed to how thoughtful people really understand and perceive rather than on debates among philosophers and scientists. The latter play their role, but so do the structures of society and popular arts. Literary figures are likely to express the actual thinking and feeling best.

A simple answer to this question is “Yes.” But that would mean very little. I think that process thinkers can benefit from discussion with any group of thoughtful people who approach matters from a different point of view. There is no one right point of view. We are all shaped by our particular histories and they have alerted us to different features of reality. We can enlarge our horizons and enrich our understanding by engaging many discussion partners.

Why Process?

Timothy pictureEveryone who has found process theology helpful reaches that conclusion based on different reasons and experiences. We each have diverse relevant worlds that lure us in particular directions, for process theology is not one entity that can be felt from only one side.
