A. J. D. Irving


Understanding creation through the theological loci of Christology and Trinitarian theology gives a view of the natural world as both contingent and free.

This paper explores three such themes: (i) the nature of reason; (ii) the character of theories; and (iii) the relationship between discursivity and the logic of reality.
