9781576591727: John Duns Scotus: Political and Economic Philosophy

This book provides both John Duns Scotus Latin text for Utrum Poenitens Teneatur Restituere and the English translation, Is a Penitent Thief Bound to Restitution? Both the Latin text and the English translation are provided by Allan B. Wolter as well as a great introduction. Scotus - unlike Thomas Aquinas - never commented on Aristotle's Politics nor did he write any significant political tracts like Ockham. Nevertheless, despite his primary philosophical reputation as a metaphysician, Scotus did have certain definitive ideas about both politics and the morality of the marketplace.
