A most outstanding contemporary vindication of Thomas' treatment in Summa Th. Prima Pars Question 3 on a grammar of divinity. Serves well by advancing beyond Aristotle's 'property inhering in a subject' to a 'property bounded by the incomplete entity.' Most outstanding work that appeals only to the principle of non-contradiction. Vindication of divine 'simpleness.' Demolishes Anselmian 'perfect being' theology, demolishes an entirely negative theology (negative in the tradition of Maimonedes), demolishes process theology. There is similitude between a set and that set's 'limit case.' Outstanding work.
