Summary

The Conclusion explores the theme of relation as integral to any participatory vision, on the basis that if all things come forth from God, then they come forth intrinsically related. Relation, and the joys and duties that accompany it, is not some secondary overlay. Here we pick up the theme of 'intra-finite participation' (the participation in, or reception from, one creature in relation to another) explored in the chapter on truth and epistemology. Central test cases here come up in the notion of the common good, and its place in a theological vision of just economics. The chapter, and the book, end where the book began, with the theme of gift: that every good and perfect gift is 'from above, coming down from the Father of lights', as the Letter of James has it.
