But within this teeming chaos of cultures there always remains Philo’s alternative, that of incorporating foreign methods and insights into a Judaism sufficiently strong and cherished to contain them. Scotus denies this notion, instead preferring the idea that being is univocal – and creatures differ only from the creator in degrees rather than type of being.

As I said, we’re not making money on this endeavor; we’re doing this as an act of love and for the greater good of the Church and in service to Our Lord. Similarly, he argues, the Jewish people should not be considered a value in itself. The Popes did not in fact wish to take on the burdens of day-to-day government throughout the world.

Aber, da wir bei Cusanus immer ganz genau lesen dürfen, können wir den Satz: „Coclear extra mentis nostrae ideam aliud non habet exemplar“ – anstatt ihn aristotelisch abzunicken, wie eben angedeutet – auch so lesen: das einzige Paradigma des Löffels ist die Idee im Geiste des Schnitzers, denn eine andere Idee außerhalb davon gibt es nicht.

Lectured on the Sentencesat Paris in 1348-49, becoming master of theology in 1352. The view that not only the human soul, but also the senses, were influenced by the fall of Adam and Eve, was prevalent in Augustine's time. It is the investigation, by means of pure speculation, of the nature of being--of the cause, substance, and purpose of everything. We have sent out invitations to rectors of 55 seminaries.

Thus, Albert's contemporaries in the Christian West took the text to uphold the supposedly Aristotelian doctrine that from the One only one thing can emanate-a doctrine they rejected, believing as they did that God freely determined the number and kinds of creatures. It emphasized union with the "Tao" or "Way of Nature" and encouraged individual freedom and communal farming.

Sometimes we understand by nature the established course of things, as when we say that nature makes the night succeed the day, nature hath made respiration necessary to the life of men. However, unlike the Buddhists and Daoists, who saw metaphysics as a catalyst for spiritual development, religious enlightenment, and immortality, the Neo-Confucianists used metaphysics as a guide for developing a rationalist ethical philosophy.
