Mathématiques et théologie : l'infini chez Nicolas de Cues

Abstract : The frequent use of the theme of infinite by Nicholas of Cusa in order to characterize the divinity, and the eminent place of mathematics in his doctrine seem to authorize a comparison with Duns Scot. In that contribution we tempt to show the deep differences between these two enterprises and more generally the Cusan's originality with respect to the scholastics of XIVth century. On the other hand, his leibnizian posterity is unquestionable.
