Analogy of being; term used in philos. and theol. to show relationship bet. God and creature. Both have existence and essence. In God these are identical, but in creatures they are tension-in-synthesis (Augustine* of Hippo) or a view toward God that is essentially a view from God Thomas* Aquinas). The analogia entis is rejected by some theologians, e.g., K. Barth.*
