by Mary Beth Ingham
This book is a “simple guide” to theological and philosophical aspects of the thought of the medieval Franciscan John Duns Scotus. Known as the Subtle Doctor, Scotus has a “reputation for intricate and technical reasoning.” Ingham provides an insightful and creative introduction to his philosophical and theological principles, which are explored with clarity and demonstrated by the use of numerous practical examples.
By organizing the book around themes that are both timely and urgent, Ingham invites the reader into thoughtful reflection, encourages lively discussion, and challenges Franciscans in particular to consider choosing, always more conscious, lovingly, and freely, patterns of relationship that strive for the goodness and beauty in all things.
