The greatest problem and most semantic vagueness on talking of God
refer to semantic analysis of human traits and their attribution to god.
When these attributes apply in usual linguistic use and normal
circumstances they have clear and intelligible sense; though such
attributes and predicates use for a transcendent, non corporeal, and
infinite being is problematic. A few theories exposed to solve (or
overcome) this puzzle. Here, I only illustrate Plotinus and Gazi-Saeed’s
theory and demonstrate how Gazi-Saeed’s theology is influenced by
Plotinusian one. Both believed that, considering ordinary language use,
we can only talk about god in negative way. It seems, however,
insisting on speaking of god negatively without using other methods,
restrains us from talking about god genuinely.
