A semiotic theory of theology and philosophy by Robert S Corrington( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 1,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concern of this work is with developing an alternative to standard categories in theology and philosophy, especially in terms of how they deal with nature. Avoiding the polemics of much contemporary reflection on nature, it shows how we are connected to nature through the unconscious and its unique way of reading and processing signs. Spinoza's key distinction between natura naturans and natura naturata serves as the governing framework for the treatise. Suggestions are made for a post-Christian way of understanding religion." "Robert S. Corrington's work represents the first sustained attempt to bring together the fields of semiotics, depth-psychology, pragmaticism, and a post-Monotheistic theology of nature. Its focus is on how signification functions in human and non-human orders of infinite nature. Our connection with the infinite is described in detail, especially as it relates to the use of sign systems."--Jacket
Ecstatic naturalism : signs of the world by Robert S Corrington( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 1,713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Semiotic theory, which has restricted its focus largely to human forms of signification, is transformed by Robert S. Corrington into a semiotics of nature itself. Corrington situates the divide between "nature naturing" and "nature natured" within the context of classical American pragmaticism and postmodern psychoanalysis. At the heart of this new metaphysics is an insistence that all signs participate in larger orders of meaning that are natural and religious. Meanings embodied in nature point beyond nature to the mystery inherent in positioned codes and signs
Nature and spirit : an essay in ecstatic naturalism by Robert S Corrington( )

14 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Phenomenological descriptions are made of the human process and its struggles between its finite and transcendent dimensions. The self is located within both natural and interpretive (i.e., hermeneutic) communities, and the semiotic implications of both types of community are detailed. The phenomenon of worldhood, i.e., that which is not a world or within the world but which locates and encompasses all worlds, is examined from the standpoint of a transformation of Heidegger's formulations. The pragmatic and semiotic dimensions of worldhood are defined in the context of an enlarged conception of nature. Finally, God's several dimensions are explored as they relate to each other and to the world within which they are often embedded. Process theology is challenged for its failure to explore what the author considers to be the fragmented yet self-transfiguring quality of the divine life."--Jacket

Nature's religion by Robert S Corrington( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corrington argues that signs and our various transference fields can and do connect us with fully natural religious powers that are not of our own making, thereby opening up a path past the Western monotheisms to a capacious religion of nature. With a foreword by Robert C. Neville, Nature's Religion is essential reading for philosophers of religion, scholars of the psychology of religion, and theologians
