Contingency and Freedom synopsis
During the 1970s, there was a revival of methodological philosophy in general and of ecology in particular. At the same time, especially in Anglo-Saxon thinking, methodological philosophy interacted creatively with the history of medieval philosophy.
It seems to us that the work of John Donus Scotus (1266-1308) could greatly benefit these developments. Not only that, but his works are screaming for evolution across the whole spectrum of theology - a science that ruled in the Middle Ages all others ('Regina Sociotheum').
This book is the result of several years of scientific research and friend, where we studied, Voss, Scotus's work. Our research group is affiliated with the Theological Seminary in Utrecht and the Stichting Francis- caans Studiecentrum.
This study offers a translation and commentary on Lectura I 39, which, in our opinion, is one of the major texts in the history of systematic theology and philosophy. In this book, we used specialized language and controversy, but at the same time we made an effort to make it useful to a circle of potential readers wider than those with good abilities in the school of the Middle Ages.
In this way, we hope to offer the difficult but educated work of the "slave teacher" in such a way as to attract scholars and other students of theology and philosophy.
