(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Metaphysics of the Incarnation

Jonathan Hill

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers an overview of the problems, and possible solutions, associated with the metaphysics of incarnation. The chapter describes the major problem of incoherence—the charge that no individual could be both divine and human, because this would involve instantiating inconsistent properties at the same time. The chapter distinguishes between metaphysical and linguistic solutions to this and similar problems, before offering a summary of the major kinds of metaphysical models of the incarnation that have been suggested, and relating the views of the other contributors to this volume to those models.

Keywords:   Nestorianism, Euytcheanism, reduplication, relative identity, physicalism, dualism, concretism, abstractism, compositionalism, relations, two-minds, kenoticism
