Abstract

The following is a work of philosophical pneumatology that posits the Spirit as the precondition for human speech. Because God created with the Word and Spirit-Breath, all things are infused with the presence of the Spirit as language. The essential linguisticality of human existence signals a deep presence of the Spirit in all things. This helps theology to reconfigure transcendence as immanentally expressed in a Spirited incarnation in language and speech.
