The difference knowledge makes: Creation out of love
As we saw in the previous chapter, before the opposition of something and nothing there is the eternal procession of the Divine Persons – the Trinity. This affords us a Trinitarian ontology, one which may allow us to speak of difference qua difference. Without this ontology, it is argued, difference is impossible and nihilism ineluctable. Yet it must be stated here that the arguments of this chapter will not be satisfactorily developed until Chapter 10.
