The German scholar Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464), or Cusanus, was one of the principal philosophers of the 15th century, though he was also a mathematician, a famous canonist, theologian, bishop and cardinal. In this bi-lingual English and German anthology, fourteen distinguished scholars address questions regarding Cusanus' writing on the self and self-consciousness.

In the philosophy of Cusanus there is a double line of discourse, concerning on the one hand self-consciousness (intuitio sui; Selbst-bewusstsein) and, on the other, knowledge of the self (cognitio sui; selbsterkenntnis). The former consept is connected to the thought of Christian mysticism and a subjective world view. The latterconcept is more connected to an ethical perspective, which is presented in his later writing, i.a. De venatione sapieentiae. These two perspectives on the self also form a thread in the papers of this volume. How is one understand the self as related to the Absolute You, described by Cusanus as the divine Artist painting his self-portrait? How should we understand Cusanus' view on the possibility of seeing God and of judging reality by means of reason and intelleact, as well as of partaking of truth and of leading a life in the light of the humanity of Christ?

There is also the question of the connection between self-consciousness and world view, which is, basically, an ethical concern about how to comprehend the visible impact og the love of God in a human context according to the golden rule. These and several other questions are addressed in this volume.
