Thinking The World Of God: Religious Language Beyond Onto/theology

How can the language of creation adequately reveal God if the God of creation transcends creation? This perennial question has most often been approached within an analogical view of language which presupposes an ontotheological view of the God/world relationship. Attentive to the influence of the Great Chain of Being on this view of (language for) the divine, we shall also examine whether there has ever been a viable alternative. Is it possible to see transcendence and immanence not as attributes of God and creation, respectively, but as facets of creation and thus creational revelation?
