For Another Theology of Nature

While, convinced that the thinking of nature reached its apogee in nineteenth-century German Naturphilosophie, philosophers and scholars in the humanities abandon it for being historically limited and treat it with disdain as an anachronistic remnant of hierarchical reasoning projected onto the world at large, new studies in theology show that nature is anything but an outdated concept. On the contrary, it breathes with the promise of a future, notably the future or the futures of the past, of what nature will have been.
