‘Nature’ and uti est in Nicholas of Cusa’s De coniecturis

De coniecturis can be interpreted from the concepts of ‘nature’ and uti est. Cusanus uses ‘nature’ in more than one sense. As a philosophical species, ‘nature’ reveals the structure of this work as a physiology or explanation of the totality of existence based on a concept of nature. Uti est, in its turn, takes part in a definition of conjecture. The meaning of uti est overlaps with that of ‘nature’ in some instances. Both ‘nature’ and uti est converge in God.
