This, so the argument goes, has led the ‘radical orthodox’ movement to privilege ancient philosophy at the expense of biblical revelation and to dismiss the important legacy of Protestant theologians in favour of Catholic thought, especially the works of nouvelle théologie.

Either it divides general from highest being and therefore posits an unwarranted separation of ontology from theology. Or else it conflates general and highest being and therefore commits the idolatry of ontotheology – a univocal account of being that forgets and denies the ontological difference between Creator and creation.
