Language and Christology

Halden has a wonderful thought on language to which I’ve commented. I thought I might offer the reflections here that I offered there. I’d love to hear your thoughts. You should read Halden’s thoughts to get the context.

I have always wondered what direction our reflections might go if we note the connection you have made – “the world is constituted by the God who is identical with his Word” – as well as the Ephesian idea that the church is the body of Christ. The communitarian approaches to language and meaning are appealing to me, especially in light of (pardon the shorthand) God=Word/Christ=Church. It seems to me that a christological starting point forces the issue for both the foundationalist/objectivist and the communitarian/pragmatist/subjectivist.
