1. God has a a higher degree of properties than us - same goodness, but pure goodness (univocally)
problem: this makes different properties distinct but God's goodness is identical to his intelligence and his very being - he is one.
2. God's goodness etc are applied in a completely dif sense than it is to humans (equivocally)
problem: complete gap between predicates used to describe humans and that we use to describe God. Thus, we cannot apply any predicates to God
3. Aquinas suggests analogically - "good" and "intelligent" used in different but importantly related ways e.g. use of the word healthy
