Additional DescriptionMore Details

Since the first publication of John Duns Scotus: The Harmony of Goodness
in 1996, much work has appeared in print on Scotus’s theological and
philosophical vision including the gradual completion of the Vatican
edition of Scotus’s Ordinatio. Various congresses and international
gatherings continue to highlight the important significance of this
great medieval thinker for the new millennium. Drawing upon the
work of several significant scholars combined with her own deepened
conviction that understanding Scotus’s moral philosophy and theology
must be understood within the broader context of Franciscan spirituality
including the role of Stoic and monastic influences on the medieval
Franciscans, Mary Beth Ingham, C.S.J., offers this new edition of John
Duns Scotus: The Harmony of Goodness. Scotus’s articulation of a moral
vision to lived harmony and to moral living as a path of beauty is offered
anew by Ingham in this new edition.

Mary Beth Ingham's The Harmony of Goodness offers a finely tuned study of John Dun Scotus, marked by clarity and conviction. No one is more adept and accomplished than Ingham when it comes to exploring, articulating, and retrieving the intricate thought of the Subtle Doctor for contemporary readers. In The Harmony of Goodness, she provides a compelling ethical worldview that is grounded in the Franciscan belief in the goodness of both the Creator and Creation, and the invitation to live accordingly. -- Dr. Timothy Johnson, Professor and Department Chair, Humanities, Flagler College

In the time since The Harmony of Goodness was first published in the mid-nineties, Mary Beth Ingham has become one of the leading scholars on Scotus and his understanding of moral living. In this revision of her earlier work, she has used her considerable knowledge to provide even more of a context out of which to understand the writings of the Subtle Doctor and to offer an even clearer presentation of the thought of this important Franciscan thinker. -- Thomas Nairn, OFM, Ph.D., Senior Director, Ethics, Catholic Health Association

A very readable introduction to Scotus's moral philosophy, The Harmony of Goodness is also a welcome shift to an aesthetic paradigm in presenting Scotus's ethics. The book showcases the importance of the aesthetic dimension of Scotus's thought that has been neglected by medievalists. Ingham's aesthetic turn is an example of kinship between pre-modern and postmodern hermeneutic principles. Yet while the groundless interplay of postmodern aesthetics washes away the foundations of the present-day world, pre-modern Scotistic aesthetics, on the contrary, promises to return it to its solid philosophical ground. -- Oleg Bychkov, Associate Professor of Philosophy, St Bonaventure University

Ethical Theory of John Duns Scotus, The (Available September 2012)

by Thomas Shannon
Pre-Order Today!

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Is the thought of John Duns Scotus relevant to 21st century men and women? Dr. Thomas A. Shannon provides a new introduction to his classic work and explores the areas of congruence and insight between several contemporary issues and the work of this 13th century Franciscan.

To some, the examination of the ethical theory of John Duns Scotus may seem an arcane perhaps even foolhardy exercise. Scotus lived over 700 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.

Identity and Distinction in Petrus Thomae

by Geoffrey G. Bridges, OFM

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Petrus Thomae taught and wrote in the first half of the fourteenth century. He belonged to the first group of Formalists, as the proponents of the formal distinction immediately after Scotus were called. Apparently, he was an outstanding light, even though at present he is so little known. The study in this book is presented in three major parts. Part I investigates Peter's teaching on the nature and kinds of identity. Part II takes up the nature and kinds of distinction. Part III concludes with a study of the distinction of the categories. Because the Spanish Franciscan Friar Petrus Thomae (died about 1350) was an immediate disciple of John Duns Scotus, it is natural that his doctrine reflects the teaching of the master and contributes to its better understanding. The important place which the formal distinction occupies in the system of Scotus is well known. Petrus Thomae composed an extensive work entitled De Formalitatibus, in which he explains and defends this much-criticized Scotistic position.
