The Thomistic Ground of Analogy and Reformed Ectypal Theology
MetadataShow full item record
Reformed ectypal theology can refine Thomistic analogy by supplementing Aquinas’ creational account of analogy’s ground with a covenantal account. Aquinas presents the ultimate ground of analogy as inexplicable but demonstrably real, terminating in the mystery of divine actuality. While Aquinas offers a creational account of this ultimate ground, further description of this ground with a covenantal account is both possible and necessary. Far from rejecting Aquinas’ ground of analogy, this proposal wholeheartedly takes it up and refines it via Reformed theology in a fashion consonant both with Aquinas’ ultimate ground of analogy and Aquinas’ overall theology.
