This chapter analyses the role of ars obligatoria in John Duns Scotus's way of doing philosophy and theology. It suggests that there is an inherent linkage between Scotus' reference to the ars obligatoria and the way he expounds his personal theory, contending that Scotus believed that the dialogically tuned theory of the ars obligatoria is linked up with ontology and the theory of contingency. The chapter evaluates the relation between William of Sherwood's Obligationes and Scotus's Lectura I.
