The Philosophy of John Duns Scotus

Antonie Vos

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter offers comments on a wide variety of Scotian subjects and theories. It considers John Duns Scotus's thought as a central focus and ingredient of a main tradition of Western thought, not as an idiosyncratic -ism or movement. The chapter describes some of the characteristics of Scotus's oeuvre and the dilemma of two types of philosophy, attempting to expound on the deep structure of Scotus's way of thinking by explaining some specific terminological points and by reviewing his explanation of contingency. It also analyses Scotus's philosophical theology of God and looks at the perspective of a philosophia Christiana.

Keywords:   Scotian theories, Western thought, John Duns Scotus, philosophy, terminological points, contingency, God, philosophia Christiana
