Publisher Description

Nancy J. Hudson Becoming God. The Doctrine of Theosis in Nicholas of Cusa. Washington, D.C.: The Catholic University of America Press 2007. Pp. 229. US$59.95 (cloth ISBN-13: 978-0-8132-1472-6). Hudson's monograph promises to tackle the philosophy of Nicholas of Cusa from a unique perspective. She contends that many seemingly paradoxical features in Cusanus' thought become understandable when viewed in light of the Greek notion of theosis. In her estimation, Cusanus' commitment to human deification and deiformity produces much of what is distinctive in ontological, psychological, and epistemological views. At the same time, the fact that theosis to Cusanus is a theological doctrine of a distinctively Christian stamp signifies for Hudson that his philosophical results will likely also carry Christological overtones, whether this has to do with God's relationship to the world or the way humanity relates to either.
