Nicolaus Cusanus and the Doctrine of Analogy

Below, I am aiming to analyze, first of all, N. Cusanus’ standpoint regarding the issue of analogy, this very frequent procedure in the texts of scholastics. How does Cardinalus Teutonicus relate to this inherent method of human thinking? Secondly, I am interested especially in a passage from De docta ignorantia [II, 4], where N. Cusanus speaks about a certain type of participation: quantum potest.

Keywords: knowledge, analogy, participation quantum potest, theology, Christology, divinization.
