Il Logos-Creatore e la razionalità dell’essere

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] The Logos-Creator and the rationality of being

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The purpose of this paper is to mention some ideas about certain analogies, about the conception of creation and of God as Logos-Creator, that can be seen in the thought of Thomas Aquinas and Ratzinger-Benedict XVI, mentioning also that Ratzinger's thought can integrate Aquinas' discourse. First, the essay retraces the conception exposed by Thomas about creation, conservation and positivity of matter. Then it takes up Ratzinger's thought on God as Logos who creates and on the rationality even of matter. It also carries out a comparison with the ancient world, which often had a negative conception of being and of human life. Finally he mentions that the eternal Reason is not a mathematics of the universe and even less a first cause that, after causing the Big Bang, withdrew, but rather has a heart.
