Complementarity has been used in a wide variety of theological issues, and not
just in christology. Niels Bohr has
used it even more generally in discussing the unity of the sciences as well
as the relation between divine love and justice. For a helpful reference to the varied uses of complementarity in
theology, see Ian G. Barbour, Myths, Models, and Paradigms: A Comparative
Study in Science & Religion (New York: Harper & Row, 1974), Chs. 5
and 8. Specific references to
christology and complementarity can be found in Christopher B. Kaiser,
"Christology and Complementarity," Religious Studies 12
(1976): 37-48. and Christopher B. Kaiser, "Quantum Complementarity and
Christological Dialectic," in Religion and Science: History, Method,
Dialogue, ed. W. Mark Richardson and Wesley J. Wildman (New York:
Routledge, 1996), 291-300. For a
discussion of the philosophical problems surrounding complementarity see E.
MacKinnon, Scientific Explanation and Atomic Physics (Chicago:
University of Chicago Press, 1982); Edward MacKinnon,
"Complementarity," CTNS Bulletin 13.1(Winter 1993); Edward
Mackinnon, "Complementarity," in Religion and Science: History,
Method, Dialogue, ed. W. Mark Richardson and Wesley J. Wildman (New York:
Routledge, 1996), 255-70.
