    to divine kenosis

    Please help me understand this sentence ( and specially underlined part) meaning:
    "Its ability to discern power in powerlessness, to divine the force of kenosis, has behind it a spiritual tradition "
    Is there any relation between "divine" and "kenosis" ?

    "Its ability to divine{to discover by intuition} the force of kenosis"

    It is a rephrasing of the previous statement "Its ability to discern power in powerlessness" in order to emphasise the statement.

    Re: to divine kenosis

    I don't understand your questions. What do you mean by 'any intention'?

    Re: to divine kenosis

    I suppose because the use of 'to divine' also fits neatly with 'spiritual'.
