Nontheistic Existentialism

20 July 2006 at 1:38 pm Leave a comment

I would like to suggest that my concept of energonomics can be conceived as a kind of “Nontheistic Existentialism.”  As I recall learning in a philosophy of existentialism course, this movement began with Kierkegaard’s “theistic” version, and as the twentieth century unfolded the (more prominent?) “atheistic” version emerged with Sartre as its most prominent spokesman.  But what would a “non-theistic” existentialism look like?  If theism posits a personified deity, and atheism denies any deity, “nontheism” suggests that there is a creative force in the universe that is not conscious.  If energonomics can be considered theologically, it would view God as Energy, an energy that is manifest throughout the universe and is infused in all things.  Energonomics, or “management of [this] energy flow,” then becomes a form of religious activity.
