Frontiers of reason: on epistemology and mystery

Rhodes, Michael Craig (2004) Frontiers of reason: on epistemology and mystery. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



This thesis has two parts. The first part is a development of Dionysius the Areopagites' theophanic notion of being, what I call his notion of the mystery of being-as-ikon, in relation to his epistemology and theory of language. The second part is an application of this notion to certain epistemological and linguistic issues in western philosophy. The purpose of the thesis is to develop a Dionysian philosophical theology through the notion of being-as-ikon in dialogue with western philosophy.
