Metaphysical Animal

Divine and Human in Man

Series:

Andrew Woznicki and John Pinelli, Dir.of Business

The theantropic structure of man postulates a specific relationship between the Divine Immanence and the Divine Transcendence with respect to the divine/human composition of man's nature, thus establishing a synergetic union between God and man. Human nature so conceived, compels man to exist in an ambiguous situation, and to live his life in a constant tension between his desire for eternity and his want for temporality. The author analyzes the traumatic conditions of theantropic consciousness of man as it is expressed by both the ancient and contemporary thinkers, and how it is portrayed in the literary works of writers and poets, dramatists and film makers.
