Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Nicolaus Cusanus on Faith and the Intellect contains the table of contents, a preface, acknowledgements, and a list of abbreviations. K.M. Ziebart argues convincingly that Cusanus' epistemology was a direct response to late-medieval debates over the relation between faith and reason, one which sought to resolve these debates by introducing a controversially strong integration of philosophy and theology. By examining his works in the context of debates with his peers, Ziebart shows how and why Cusanus came to articulate a theory of knowledge in which faith is posited as inherent to the very structure of mind, as the Vis iudiciaria, or power of judgment. This well-grounded study sheds new light on the Cusan philosophy and expands our view of a crucial, liminal period in European intellectual history.

Keywords: faith; K.M. Ziebart; Nicolaus Cusanus; philosophy; theology
