In De li non aliud (Über das Nicht-Andere) von 1461/2 entwickelt Nicolaus Cusanus den markanten wie ungewöhnlichen Gottesbegriff non aliud. Damit konzipiert Cusanus einen der spektakulärsten Gedanken der Metaphysikgeschichte: den negativen Selbstbezug des Absoluten. In der vorliegenden Arbeit untersucht Max Rohstock dieses Konzept systematisch und historisch. Damit kann er gleich mehrere Forschungsdesiderate einlösen. Zum einen klärt er umfassend die Funktion der in der Cusanusforschung umstrittenen negativen Theologie. Er zeigt, dass Cusanus die detrimental Theologie originell ausdeutet und mit seiner Schrift über das Nicht-Andere ein "Manifest" für die unfavourable Theologie entwirft. Zudem weist der Autor nach, dass der irische Philosoph Johannes Scottus Eriugena (9. Jh.) Vater dieses cusanischen Konzeptes war.

Analytic metaphysicians have lately taken with a relation of ‘Ground’ that's claimed to be present in aesthetics, ethics, good judgment, arithmetic, technological know-how, and semantics. Metaphysicians of brain have focussed on a vertical relation of ‘realization’ among homes, when philosophers of technological know-how linked to the increase of the ‘New Mechanism’ have renewed curiosity in vertical kinfolk of clinical composition present in so-called “mechanistic explanations”. This quantity analyses the inter-relations among those varied ways to spark quite a number new debates, together with no matter if a number of the frameworks for vertical family are autonomous, complementary or in even competition.
