On a généralement retenu l. a. thought sartrienne de "manque d'être", relative à l'humain. Certes il s'est hireé à décrire ce manque, mais sa recherche aboutit à découvrir l'humain essentiellement animé de los angeles tendance à "remplir les vides". Loin d'être une fatalité désespérante, ce manque est actif au element même qu'il est plutôt un désir vif et consistent de ce dont il manque manifestement. L'Etre et le néant aboutit donc à l. a. idea du "désir d'être" qui, selon Sartre, caractérise le plus concrètement attainable l'être humain. . .

Achevée en 1440, los angeles Docte lack of understanding du cardinal Nicolas de Cues fait partie de ces livres qui ont profondément modifié le destin de l. a. philosophie. Tirant les leçons à los angeles fois de l'illimitation du monde et de l'éclatement de l. a. chrétienté, il suggest une singulière méthode de connaissance qui, par tout un jeu de coïncidences des opposés, de conjectures et d'approximations, défie les savoirs traditionnels et leurs certitudes démonstratives pour mieux penser l'infini et conjurer le scepticisme auquel il peut conduire. Conjuguant théologie, body, métaphysique et mathématiques, l'ouvrage réussit à concilier l. a. dignité de l'homme et l'univers infini de los angeles nouvelle cosmologie. A partir de l. a. culture néoplatonicienne et de l'école mystique rhénane dont il s'est nourri, Nicolas de Cues, qui inspira des penseurs aussi différents que Giordano Bruno, Pascal et Leibniz, prend ainsi définitivement congé des vieilles métaphysiques de l. a. création pour jeter les fondements de l. a. modernité.
