This book, along with its companion Volume II, give the reader, both in Latin and in English translation, a solid working text of the Examined Report of the Paris Lecture of John Duns Scotus, known to scholars as Reportatio I-A. In light of new research and observations, the Reportatio I-A represents a more advanced and mature stage of Scotus's thought. It features an expanded discussion of the divine ideas, a well-argued and concise account of the problem of contingency, a more advanced account of the "formal distinction" and a novel view of personal property. The Reportatio I-A contains a different layout of questions and sometimes whole different Distinctions compared to other theological and philosophical texts of Scotus's thought. Translation by Allan B. Wolter, OFM, and Oleg Bychkov.
