E-BOOK EXCERPT

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.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

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.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

From this the very outset, Duns Scotus present us with a dichotomy; displaying before us, our true inability coupled with a truism. In this work, this approach and response is the hallmark of his works. Scotus present his theology/philosophical treaties his ideas of formal distinction and rational distinctions. That is to say the"distinct form" exists midway between the distinct rationality. However, Scotus expounds on his views concerning form and matter. Duns Scotus proposes three important issues, which that sets himself apart from some other philosophers of his day. These are 1) He holds that there exists matter that has no form whatsoever. 2) Not all created substances are composites of form and matter. 3) One and the same substance can have more than one substantial form. This work is a must work for any serious philisophical buff, avid student of theological or any individual who has a real need to know.
