Document Summary

The existence of god january 24 th. Hww 466-70: summa theologiae; hww 472-478: names of god; maurer chapter xii- Two key elements of bonaventure"s exemplarism: illumination and seminal reasons. Seminal reasons: p143 of maurer: seminal principles explain the origin of new beings in the universe. God created the universe illed with the seeds (seminal reasons) of all things that would later develop. Like a rosebud becoming a rose, all things develop from their primitive embryonic forms into perfect being. God imparts forms into matter and then the secondary cause lourishes into a perfect state. The created agent (humans, secondary causes) cannot create the forms, but only evolve it. God here is almighty because his power is the only one that can bring the forms into actuality, all we can do is develop their potentiality. Illumination: to complete the picture of human knowledge, you need some sort of link back to the divine ideas/reasons/exemplars.
