I take this to be the persistent value in Nguyen’s text, not so much that it reminds us to restrain our temptation to privilege and eulogize the human self (writing it “large on the canvas of nature”), but that it reminds us, in a true Tillichian vein, of our need for ecstatic healing and wholeness.
In this respect, Nguyen’s Nature’s Primal Self serves as one of the most helpful interpretations of Corrington’s corpus to date, helping us through the maze of Corrington’s dense but exquisite theoretical framework while keeping us focused on the expectation that drives Corrington’s theorizing, the expectation for nature’s primal self of spiritual transfiguration and ecstasy.
