Incarnation, Timelessness, and Leibniz's Law Problems

Show Summary Details


This chapter argues two points. First, it will not do for the advocate of atemporality to dismiss the charge that her view is inconsistent with the orthodox understanding of the Incarnation. There are ways of handling the standard Leibniz's Law problems that cannot be pressed into service to dispel the apparent inconsistency between the doctrines of timelessness and the Incarnation. The second conclusion is that there is at present some reason to doubt the utility of the qua-moveas as a means of solving Christological problems.

Keywords: God; Incarnation; timelessness; atemporality; Leibniz
