Issues Raised

Analogy (Aquinas)

An analogy is comparing two or more related items eg. the human brain is like a computer

Aquinas rejected the Via Negativa, he thought that it was wrong to talk of what God is not so....

He came up with another way, talking of God in an analogous sense......God is good (we understand what it means but God's goodness can not be compared to our own)

God is good, but in a different way to humans
