Item description for Human Nature in Gregory of Nyssa: Philosophical Background and Theological Significance (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae, V. 46) by Johannes Zachhuber...

This volume explores Gregory Of Nyssa's concept of human nature. It argues that the frequent use Gregory makes of "phusis"-terminology is not only a terminological predilection, but rather the key to the philosophical and theological foundations of his thought. Starting from an overview of the theological landscape in the early 360's the study first demonstrates the meaning and relevance of universal human nature as an analogy for the Trinity in Cappadocian theology. The second part explores Gregory's use of this same notion in his teaching on the divine economy. It is argued that Gregory takes this philosophical theory into the service of his own theology. Ultimately the book provides an example for the mutual interaction of philosophy and Christian theology in the fourth century.

Reviews - What do customers think about Human Nature in Gregory of Nyssa: Philosophical Background and Theological Significance (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae, V. 46)?

An interesting aspect to Gregory of Nyssa  May 30, 2002
Although I wouldn't spend $... on this book it is definatly worth it. The fascinating background information is all based on previously unpublished sources and therefore of great interest to me. The style in which Zachhuber wrote the book is fascinating, especially as English is not his native toungue, as are the aspects and different thesi which he brings up within the book.
 
an outstanding insight to the thought of gregory of nyssa  May 25, 2002
when i first received this book as a present of a close friend of mine i thanked her politely and squashed the book in a corner of my already overcrowded shelf. only a few months later did i open it and i was immediatly sucked into the extraordinary of gregory of nyssa. the point of view given by the author is informative and facinating all in one.
i strongly recommend this book to anybody even vaguely interested in the philosophically gripping theories of gregory of nyssa and it is a definite must for any young theologian on his or her way up.
