Bahá'í Ontology, Part One:
An Initial Reconnaissance

by Ian Kluge

published in Lights of Irfan, Volume 6, pages 121-160
Wilmette, IL: Irfan Colloquia, 2005
Abstract:

Like the sacred scripture of all religions, the Bahá'i Writings embody an ontology, that is, they contain teachings about the nature of what exists and the structure of reality. This paper is an initial survey and explication of the ontology implicit in the Writings. It pays special attention to the nature of human existence, that is, to nature of specifically human be-ing. In pursuing these goals, this paper will make a number of observations about the Bahá'i Writings and the philosophy of Nietzsche and some of his modern successors.
