Handy guide to Analogy

This is hardly the last word on the subject, but it seemed useful to provide a clear example, so that I wouldn’t confuse myself and everyone else when we talk about the distinction between analogical and univocal predication.


Key thing here:  as I hope you can see, this does not mean we resign clear definitions and prefer vague metaphors.  It does mean that we pay attention to the metaphysical “facts of life” that found and bound our ability to understand and discuss an intelligible universe.
