Description
Summary:"This book deals with one of the main themes in the life and thinking of Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464), the experience of conflict and the need to realise reconciliation and tolerance. The essays in this volume discuss not only the various conflicts in which this important philosopher, theologian, mathematician and politician of the fifteenth century was involved, but also try to interpret the main speculative themes in his philosophical and theological works in the perspective of his historical experiences. As such, this book delivers a contribution to a better understanding of intellectual, religious and cultural life of the fifteenth century as an era of transition between late Middle Ages and Early Modernity."--BOOK JACKET.
