The Cambridge Companion to Duns Scotus / Edition 1by Thomas Williams
Pub. Date: 12/09/2002
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
John Duns Scotus (1265/6-1308) was (along with Aquinas and Ockham) one of the three principal figures in medieval philosophy and theology, with an influence on modern thought arguably greater than that of Aquinas. The essays in this volume systematically survey the full range of Scotus's thought. They clearly explain the technical details of his writing and demonstrate the relevance of his work to contemporary philosophical debate.
