I am neither a specialist for logic nor for theology. Yet, I was electrified about Nikolaus von Kues statement that God is the concept of concept.

Has Kues’ proposition somehow been applied as a real bridge between logic and theology, in order to improve the comprehension of these fields by their mutual coherence? Or, is Kues’ sentence not more than a bon mot?

What is the name of this interdisciplinary subject? Has it something to do with Platonism, or not? Did, for instance, Kant, Schopenhauer or any of the philosopher or logicians after Kues, investigate this? − If not, what is this coherence or how could it be investigated?

    @Zeus. I doubt that logicians and scientists are really interested in getting rid of your monsters. – user3017 Jun 11 '17 at 0:46
