The Thomistic Ground of Analogy and Reformed Ectypal Theology
MetadataShow full item record
Analogy of Being
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.
