Is Panentheism Naturalistic? How Panentheistic Conceptions of Divine Action Imply Dualism
2014 (English)In: Forum Philosophicum - International Journal for Philosophy, Vol. 19, no 2, 209-225 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper will argue that panentheism fails to avoid ontological dualism, and that the naturalistic assumption being employed in panentheism undermines the idea of God acting in physical reality. Moreover, given panentheism’s lack of success with respect to avoiding dualism, it becomes unclear to what extent panentheism represents a naturalistic approach in the dialogue between science and religion.
