Reviews

Paul Dominiak's monograph on Richard Hooker's 'metaphysics of participation' is an outstanding research achievement. Opening with a discussion of the sapiential theology which inspires Hooker's generic disposition of the species of law in the first book Of the Lawes of Ecclesiasticall Politie (1593), Dominiak argues that the work is constructed in accordance with a rigorously architectonic logic [...} Dominiak's approach is radical in that he seeks to penetrate the underlying Neoplatonic metaphysical assumptions of this early-modern English philosophical theologian, and to show how these assumptions animate the treatise as a whole. [...] This is an undeniably bold thesis, and the author demonstrates his claim with admirable lucidity and panache. * Torrance Kirby, McGill University, Canada *
The past half century has seen a remarkable flowing of attention to the theme of participation - of sharing, or having from - in Christian theology. In that, Richard Hooker has too often received only an honourable mention in passing. With The Architecture of Participation, Paul Dominiak lays out the participatory structure of Hooker's thought with admirable clarity. All future writers on this central theme in Christian doctrine, metaphysics, and practice will be in Dominiak's debt. * Andrew Davison, Starbridge Lecturer in Theology and Natural Sciences, University of Cambridge, UK *
