Difficulties persist in interpreting the “three Persons” in the Trinity. The solution explored here employs a non-univocal or differentiated concept of Personhood. “Personhood” applied to God is itself three-in-one, explicated as the Suprapersonal, the Personal, and the Interpersonal. This novel taxis provides the structure for a dialectical progression through the Trinity that spans several points of dispute in recent trinitarian theology. Yet this taxis is not a proper name for God, but is best understood as a kind of self-canceling “appropriation.” The whole is thus an exercise in an altered mode of writing doctrine, a synthesis of construction and deconstruction.
