THE PHILOSOPHY OF

John Duns Scotus
ANTONIE VOS
John Duns Scotus is arguably one
of the most significant philosopher
theologians of the Middle Ages, yet
he has often been overlooked. This
book serves to recover his rightful
place in the history of Western
philosophy, revealing that he is in
fact one of the great masters of our
philosophical heritage. Among the
fields to which Scotus has made an
immense contribution are logic,
metaphysics, philosophy of mind
and action, and ethical theory.
The Philosophy of John Duns
Scotus provides a formidable yet
comprehensive overview of the life
and works of this Scottish-born
philosopher. Vos has successfully
combined his lifetime of dedicated
study with the significant body of
biographical literature, resulting
in a unique look at the life and
works of this philosopher
theologian. This book will be a
valuable addition to any collection
on the History of Philosophy.
