Panentheistic Dualisms, Chaos and Values. The Metaphysics of Ehrenfels and Scheler

Kevin Mulligan


One of the more curious twentieth century philosophies of God or the divine is panentheism: God and the world are numerically distinct but each depends for its existence or for its continued existence or for its development and axiological properties on the other. In the Broad Church of panentheistic philosophy, the views of two philosophers from Prague, Ehrenfels and Bergmann, and of the south German, realist phenomenologist, Scheler, play an important role. I outline the relations between the views of these three heirs of Brentano and look briefly at some related views.
