Book review

But even if we can not accurately express the essence of something, we are able to say what this "something" is not - that is, give more indirect than direct determination. "Apophatic" (from the Greek "apofazis" - deny or mention, not to mention) is focused on what is inexpressible in words. This method originated as a denial of direct description; the focus shifts to the negative description, referred to the via negativa Latin, the "way of negation", the title of theological tradition, which was particularly strong in the Orthodox Church. Via negativa is not trying to explain that there is a God - leave this primitive school of modern thinkers and close to science pseudo-philosophers. Apophatic theology points to what God is not, and follows the path of denial. Mainly, this tradition is associated with the mystical theologian wing Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite. So we call the Middle East resident of a roll-Dionysius, author of amazing mystical treatises; his long confused with Dionysius the Areopagite, a judge from Athens, who converted to Christianity by his preaching Paul. Hence the word "pseudo" before the name of Dionysius.
