Summary or Abstract : The dissertation is an attempt to construct an ontological language of incarnation that makes sense for today, avoids the substance metaphysics of early creeds, and interprets the presence of genetic tendencies toward cooperation theologically. The work begins with argument for the importance of speech about incarnation, history of the idea of incarnation in Christian thought, and its relationship to ideas of divine apatheia . In the constructive portion, I develop the concept of participation as the capacity to share the intrapsychic life world of others. Using developmental psychology research into human selfhood, I show that the ability to participate cognitively and affectively in the life world of others is inherent to human development. Participation is explored as a complex process of entrainment (a temporal state of physiological synchrony); attunement (affect mirroring); sympathy (sharing of feeling states in affective fusion); and empathy, the higher level cognitive act of entraining, attuning, sympathizing with the other while maintaining a clear sense of self in distinction from the others experience. After showing that the capacity for participation is intimately tied to human selfhood, I explore its presence in nature. Biology uses the category of entrainment as physiological responding to one's environment, and speaks of the presence of altruism in nature, as the innate tendency toward cooperation for maximized survival. I use these discoveries to expand the category of participation as present throughout creation, thereby opening the concept to a more cosmic level than allowed by traditional interpretations. These insights come together to articulate the theological doctrine of God's incarnation in Jesus Christ. Here, the presence of the capacity for relationship and the innate benefits of helping behaviors are interpreted to mean that in the capacity for participation, the conditions for the possibility of incarnation exist. Truly empathic relation is the means by which we enter into the process of salvation, as deification. Jesus as Christ entrains with, attunes to, embodies sympathy and empathy with humanity and God so completely as to be a singular revelation of the divine..
