Duns Scotus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This is an accessible introduction to the life and thought of John Duns Scotus (c. 1266--1308), the scholastic philosopher and theologian who came to be called the Subtle Doctor. A native of Scotland (as his name implies), Scotus became a Franciscan and taught in Oxford, Paris, and Cologne. In his writings he put Aristotelian thought to the service of Christian theology and was the founder of a school of scholasticism called Scotism, which was often opposed to the Thomism of the followers of Thomas Aquinas. In particular, Scotus is well known for his defense of contra-causal free will and logical possibility and for his account of individuation in terms of "haecceity" or "thisness." Cross offers a clear introductory account of the most significant aspects of Scotus's theological thought. Theology is here construed broadly to include Scotus's philosophical investigation of God's existence and attributes. In addition to providing a clear, though not always uncritical, outline of Scotus's positions, Cross aims to show how Scotus's theories fit into modern debates, particularly contemporary debates in philosophical theology, and to point out Scotus's historical significance in the development of theology.

John Duns Scotus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

'Of realty the rarest-veined unraveler', John Duns Scotus was one of the profoundest metaphysicians who ever lived. In this volume, the world's foremost Scotus scholars collaborate to present the latest research on his work. In ethics, the focus is on practical wisdom, on beauty as an ethical concept, and on the independence of the virtues; in metaphysics, on modality, individuation, and being. Textbook accounts notwithstanding, Scotus' theory of logical possibilities implies no existence or actuality for possible beings though being and thinking presuppose the domain of possibility; potency only supervenes on the actual. There are important thirteenth-century precursors of Scotus' theory of modality and individuation. Posterior to quidditative entity, Scotus clearly distinguishes the ultimate reality of individual beings both from individuals and from individuality.

John Duns Scotus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

John Duns Scotus (1266-1308) was one of the most important theologians and philosophers of the Middle Ages with a considerable infl uence on both christian and secular thought. He was called the Doctor Subtilis for his penetrating and subtle manner of thought. Despite his importance and greatness, little is known about his life, and information on his life in older literature is often not correct. In this volume, Antonie Vos presents a new biography based on the facts and on the information given in the writings of Duns himself. Information in older literature is checked and often corrected, and new information is added.

The Physics Of Duns Scotus


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Duns Scotus, along with Thomas Aquinas and William of Ockham, was one of the three most talented and influential of the medieval schoolmen, and a highly original and creative thinker. Natural philosophy, or physics, is one of the areas of his system which has not received detailed attentionin modern literature. But it is important, both for understanding Scotus's contributions in theology, and in tracing some important developments in the basically Aristotelian world-view which Scotus and his contemporaries espoused. The book contains detailed discussion and analysis of Scotus'saccounts of the nature of matter; the structure of material substance; mass; the nature of space, time, and motion; quantitative and qualitative change; and the various sorts of unity which can be exhibited by different kinds of whole. It also includes discussion of Scotus's accounts ofchemical composition, organic unity, and nutrition. Scotus's views on these matters are philosophyically sophisticated, and often highly original.

Bl John Duns Scotus And His Mariology


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Commemoration of the Seventh Centenary of His Death The hope of this Symposium is to set in relief the importance of the mystery of Mary in understanding the thought of Bl. John Duns Scotus, a mystery so much neglected by many students of Scotus, today as in yesteryear. Without that profound veneration of the Immaculate Virgin and an appreciation of her uniqueness as the Immaculate Conception, the theology and metaphysics of Scotus will remain merely the abstruse delight of an elite academy, and Mariology will be lacking its securest instrument of reflection.
