To some, the examination of the ethical theory of John Duns Scotus may seem an arcane - perhaps even foolhardy - exercise. Scotus lived over 600 years ago; his thought is difficult to grasp; many themes in his analysis of issues seem to be - or actually are - convoluted. Additionally, many have not heard of Scotus or, if they have, it is primarily as the one who opposed Aquinas - and came off second best. Even his beatification in 1993 was not widely noted outside of the Franciscan community. In this book, the author discovers areas of congruence and insight between Scotus' thought and several contemporary issues. While Scotus' language and problems are different than ours, he has a point of view that helps illuminate certain aspects of our modern discussions.
