Via Negativa

HideShow resource information

Writers have argued only possible to talk about god is through negative terms saying what he is not this is know as Via Negativa. This involves talking about using only negative term to highlight difference between God and Humanity.

Argue that positive terms such as god is all over and invisible are misleading because suggest god has attributes in physical world and we understand him this is inaccurate which i and should be avoided - if we say God is Good then we start thinking about own goodness  because it is only goodness we know  and we imagine god must posses goodness like ours which is flawed it…
