Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the life and career of John Duns Scotus in Paris, Oxford, Cambridge and Cologne during the period from 1303 to 1308, explaining that during this time, he was constantly on the move. Scotus spent his time in exile, in a new effort as baccalaureus sententiarius in Cambridge, and in a short Parisian professorship. The chapter suggests that Scotus's early death in Cologne is wedded to a long-term perspective of eternal richness, and also reviews the complicated literature on this subject.
