Abstract [en]

The discussion has explored how process thought might clarify a relation between Logos and a teleological organized form of panentheism. Logos could be described as participating in an event with a primordial beginning leading to creation, incarnation and a conjoining movement between God and the world. Applying Joseph Bracken's concept of society, this movement can be described as a field (the holy Trinity) working in fields. By referring to John's prologue and articles where logos is mentioned, this essay has also explored how logos might be perceived as a person. The survey primarily consists of articles mentioning logos published in Process Studies. Moreover, Catherine Keller’s concept of a poietic language has been adopted and developed referring to Isa 7:15. Finally, drawing an analogy between the Old and the New Testament, this essay can be seen as a critical comment on Alfred North Whitehead's concept of Logos in Religion in the Making. The discussion has frequently drawn on concepts in John’s prologue and concepts elaborated by Whitehead, Bracken, Keller, John B. Cobb and Tokiyuki Nobuhara.
