God, Supernatural Kinds, and the Incarnation

Religious Studies 27 (3):353-370 (1991)
Abstract
Traditionally, the term ’God’ has been understood either as a proper name or as a description. However, according to a new view, the term God’ in a sentence like "Jesus Christ is God" functions as a kind term, much as the term ’tiger’ functions in the sentence "Tigger is a tiger." In this paper I examine the claim that divinity can be construed as a ’supernatural’ kind, developing the outlines of an account of the semantics of God’ along these lines, and suggest that it might solve an important philosophical problem concerning the Incarnation
