From Hugh to Jean-François

‘Therefore, the more manifestly each drawing demonstrates the truth, the more openly through this dissimilar similitude it proves that it is a drawing and not the truth. And in this, dissimilar similitudes lead our understanding further toward the truth because they do not allow it to dwell on likeness alone.’ [translation Oliver W. Norris, in Discourse, Figure]

St Hugh, commenting on Pseudo-Dionysius, in Lyotard
