(Language: English)

This section will explore various ontological aspects of the thought of Cusanus, and the ways Cusanus articulated the ontology of number, as well as the Divine Essence and the Being of created things. In doing so it will explore the role of language, paradox, and epistemology in Cusanus' philosophical speculation, including the question of whether a model of analogia entis might or might not be possible for Cusanus' Metaphysics.
