Abstract

[The limit between immanence and transcendence is not simple. Rather than merely dividing two distinct domains, it intervenes in and organizes those domains. As we have argued, analogy (even in the minimal Barthian requirement that we can specify the “whence” of a revelation) is a crucial, and perhaps indispensable, mediator of transcendence to the world. As such, it has a function: the analogy machine grounds, guarantees, and harmonizes all the differences. Analogy is theodicy: a way of justifying transcendence, securing its difference from the world in the interests of harmonizing that world, referring it to a supratemporal and preexisting harmony as the ground of its being and the hope of its future.]
