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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book's argument is worth the reader's effort." Journal of Religion
"Robert Corrington's recent book is a stunningly original and imaginatively developed work of metaphysics...Persons unfamiliar with Corrington's earlier work should brace themselves for an extraordinary reading experience with this text. Only a handful of brave souls really do metaphysics anymore; and absolutely no one does it in quite the way that Corrington does it." --Michael L. Raposa, Modern Theology
"This is speculative philosophy that is challenging and refreshing." Philosophy in Review
