Abstract

The sublime experiences which one can have in the mountains are a promising point of departure for engagements with the two standard models of human world interpretation, antirealism and materialism. Particularly the critiques of these two predominant models, articulated by philosophers such as Thomas Nagel, offer theologians the opportunity to think through the uniqueness of the experience of nature in more plausible and more productive ways than in reductionist materialism. Following a similar trajectory, christology could be considered a culturally mediated interpretative framework which allows for the understanding of the meaning and mystery of human encounters with the world.
