"Event theology" is a new approach to theology that is rooted in postmodern philosophies. The concept that John de Caputo, the American philosopher of religion, based on the ideas of his teacher, Jacques Derrida, established to negate the theological systems based on traditional Western philosophy and seeks religion without metaphysics. The theology of the event speaks of a kind of instability in meaning, and depicts an indeterminate situation in theological concepts. This attitude denies the permission of any absolutism and systematization and, in a word, central metaphysics in theological concepts from human thought. The theology of occurrence talks about concepts that are continuously being realized, an open, unpredictable, and uncontrollable future, and instead of epistemological strains, it emphasizes the pragmatic and existential features of religion.
In theology, instead of dealing with religious knowledge, which is necessarily a metaphysical matter, serious attention is paid to religious rituals such as altruism, good deeds, seeking justice and ethics. But from a critical point of view, one should ask if theology minus metaphysics is conceivable at all? In other words, is it possible to enter the field of theology without philosophical interpretation and formulation? This article is an answer to this basic question against the concept of the theology of occurrence.
