  1. Charles Sanders Peirce and a Religious Metaphysics of Nature.Leon Niemoczynski - 2011 - Lexington Books.
    In this enlightening and original study on the cultivation of a religious understanding of nature, Leon Niemoczynski applies Charles Sanders Peirce's thought on metaphysics to 'ecstatic naturalism,' the philosophical perspective developed by Robert Corrington. Niemoczynski points to Peirce's phenomenological and metaphysical understanding of possibility-the concept of 'Firstness'-as especially critical to understanding how the divine might be meaningfully encountered in religious experience. He goes on to define his own concept of speculative naturalism, offering a new approach to thinking about nature that (...)

    Nature’s Transcendental Creativity: Deleuze, Corrington, and an Aesthetic Phenomenology.Leon Niemoczynski - 2013 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 34 (1):17-34.
    Ecstatic naturalism believes that a rich conceptualization of nature should emphasize the reality of a basic ontological difference between a ground that is responsible for generating the world and the encompassing yet incarnate processes of the world. The ontological difference mentioned here is a difference between "nature naturing" (natura naturans) and "nature natured" (natura naturata).1 Ecstatic naturalism takes seriously the difference between nature naturing and nature natured because it is a philosophy that recognizes nature's immanent or incarnate processes of semiotic (...)

    Creative Experiencing: A Philosophy of Freedom by Charles Hartshorne (Review).Leon Niemoczynski - 2014 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 35 (1):85-89.
    Creative Experiencing was an unpublished manuscript found among Hartshorne’s papers now deposited at the Center for Process Studies at the Claremont School of Theology. Hartshorne mentions in the manuscript’s preface that he considered the book to be the final part of a trilogy including Creative Synthesis and Philosophic Method (1970) and Wisdom as Moderation (1987). The book was edited and published under the direction of longtime Hartshorne scholars Donald Viney and Jincheol O.“Metaphysics,” Hartshorne writes in the preface, “is the attempt (...)

    The One, the Many, and the Trinity: Joseph A. Bracken and the Challenge of Process Metaphysics. [REVIEW]Leon J. Niemoczynski - 2012 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 33 (3):277-281.
    Process metaphysics has had a more limited impact in Roman Catholic theology than it has had in Protestant theology. In The One, the Many, and the Trinity, Marc Pugliese traces the development of Roman Catholic theology synthesized with process theology as it is found in the thought of Joseph A. Bracken, S. J. As the title indicates, Bracken’s process perspective concerning the Trinity is the main focus of the book. The One, the Many, and the Trinity consists of four chapters (...)

    Nature’s Sublime: An Essay in Aesthetic Naturalism.Leon Niemoczynski - 2015 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 36 (2):191-194.
    Nature’s Sublime: An Essay in Aesthetic Naturalism returns to Corrington’s roots in aesthetics as informed by two major influences: German romanticism and idealism, and “psychosemiotics”. The sublime, as it relates to both religion and aesthetics, is the book’s key motif. Those interested in American philosophy and theology, Continental philosophy of religion, German idealism, and romanticist aesthetics will appreciate this book because it takes on a very unique approach to thinking about religion’s relationship to art. Corrington’s introduction outlines four basic dimensions (...)

    Phenomenology in the American Vein: Justus Buchler’s Ordinal Naturalism and its Importance for the Justi?Cation of Epistemic Objects.Leon Niemoczynski - 2009 - Spontaneous Generations 3 (1):9-27.
    In this essay, I explore Justus Buchler’s ordinal naturalism with the goal of establishing how his phenomenological approach extends the range of human inquiry to include the many and varied traits of natural phenomena that are not “simply” the result of sensate experience or material functions. To achieve this goal I critically assess Buchler’s notion of “ontological parity”–the idea that abstract phenomena such as values, relations, ideals, and other mental contents are just as relevant as sense-data when one attempts to (...)

    A Resurgence of American Philosophical Naturalism.Leon Niemoczynski - 2016 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 37 (1):53-54.
    I am honored, grateful, and of course very pleased to be the guest editor of the articles whose topic is ecstatic naturalism published here in this issue of The American Journal of Theology & Philosophy. Robert Corrington’s ecstatic naturalism has for the better part of several decades been an evolving perspective and indeed carries forward a tradition of philosophical naturalism dating back to they heyday of American naturalisms found within the mid to late twentieth century. To this day Corrington’s ecstatic (...)
