Människans tystnad

Freidrich von Schelling om förhållandet mellan människan och Gud:

Schelling’s problem is not “What does God mean in our – human – eyes? Does He still mean anything? Is it possible to account for human history without any reference to God? Is God just a projection of human fantasies?”, but the opposite one: “What does man mean in the eyes of God?” That is to say: one should never forget that Schelling’s starting point is always God, the Absolute itself; consequently, his problem is: “What role does the emergence of man play in the Divine life? Why – in order to resolve what kind of deadlock – did God have to create man?” Within this context, the criticism of “anthropomorphism” apropos of Schelling’s use of psychological observations in his description of the Divine life again misses the point: “anthropomorphism” in the description of the Divine life is not only to be avoided; it is, rather, to be openly endorsed – not because man is “similar” to God, but because man directly is part of the Divine life, that is. Because it is only man, in human history , that God fully realizes Himself, that he becomes the actual living God.
