Abstract In this essay I suggest that consciousness’s teleological capacity to perceive beauty, pleasure, and perfection suggests not only an orientation toward the “not-yet”, and thus an opening to the eschatological, but also it reveals a constitution that can be rightly called theo-logical. Tracing this theo-logical constitution of consciousness allows us, I would like to suggest, to effect a paradigm shift in the field of the phenomenology of religion.
