I ovetandets moln


Ett helt annat slags ontologi, en icke-ontologiontologi, från 1300-talet:

But now you put to me a question and say, ’How might I think of him in himself, and what is he?” And to this I can only answer thus, ”I have no idea.” For with your question you have brought me into that same darkness, into that same cloud of unknowing where I would you were yuorself… Therefore, it is my wish to leave everything that I can think of and choose for my love the thing that I cannot think.

ur The Cloud of Unknowing, senare delen av 1300-talet, England, författare: okänd.
