Lecture “The Synergistic-Generative Knowledge of God in the I-Thou Encounter” by Paul Negrut & Ioan G Pop | Oradea, Romania

Lecture description | 

This paper applies the transdisciplinary methodology to theological epistemology by introducing the synergistic-generative knowledge, real, reality, perception and hidden third, in the interpersonal dialogue I-Thou. It explores the epistemic approach to Yeshua ha Mashiah as the hidden third who opens the transdisciplinary window to knowing God. The transdisciplinary epistemic window allows for a top-down and bottom-up movments to better understand the epistemic role of Jesus Christ in knowing Deus absconditus. Being simultaneous filius hominis and Filius Dei, Deus and Imago Dei, He plays the role of the hidden third between Deus and Imago Dei in the I-Thou salvific encounter.
