Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the role of argument, proof and science in the philosophy of John Duns Scotus. It explains that Scotus draws the contents of his thought from the wells of faith, revelation and the theology of the Church, while his central method derives from the structure of scientific deducibility. The chapter suggests that his theories of proof and scientia are vital both to the epistemological contents and to the methods of his thinking.
