Aquinas’ use of analogy relies on the likeness of cause and effect (our goodness is caused by God, so there must be some analogy between infinite and finite goodness, since effects resemble their causes). In this instance, therefore, God’s goodness is the focal meaning by which finite goodness gets its own meaning. It is against this view that Scotus develops his own position: a univocal theory of religious language. He defines univocity as follows: ‘I designate that concept univocal which possesses sufficient unity in itself, so that to affirm or deny it of one and the same thing would be a contradiction’ (Duns Scotus 1978b: 20).
Hence these stand in two relations, one to the items before them (in virtue of which they are said to be their species), and one to the items after them (in virtue of which they are said to be their genera)’ (Porphyry 2003: 6). A consequence of this is that we now need to define the species in terms of something other than the individual, since only the lowest species relates directly to things which differ only in number. Instead, we now define the species in terms of its genus. Thus we have a hierarchy, reaching from the highest genera to the individual, through which the individual is specified by a process of division from the genus through the various species, gaining determinations as it goes, since each genus will determine the essence of that below it.
Therefore it is going to be logically secondary to a focal meaning, in this case the notion of substance to which properties are attributed. As we shall see, this notion of paronymy is also central to the Scholastic tradition, where it takes the form of analogy. indd 29 30/01/2013 12:30 30 Deleuze’s Difference and Repetition highest genus. To deal first with the question of black nothingness, we can see that even if we can now solve the logical problem of how the terms at the top of the hierarchy are related, we are still left with a question as to how we are able to define the concept of being.
