\"The idea of a thing which the name signifies is its definition," as the Philosopher says. The definition is the way of proving, or rather the entire proof that brings about knowledge. The conclusion is that in created things nothing shines except their idea alone. This is what is said of the Word here - that it is "the light of men," namely their Idea. So too the text, "And the light shines in the darkness," as if to say that among created things nothing shines, nothing is known, nothing brings about knowledge besides the "what-it-is," definition and idea of the thing itself.
