Review quote

A broad, accessible introduction to the thought of John Duns Scotus that is both useful for the beginner and engaging to the specialist. . . . Cross succeeds in showing that Duns Scotus was a great thinker engaged in a wide variety of interesting ideas at a very high level of rational inquiry. The book will also prove useful for the broad context that it provides for the standard excerpts and typical references that constitute the usual brush with Scotus in university studies. Finally, even the specialist will appreciate the invitation to review in a short compass the variety of influential Scotistic doctrines that this short book manages to encircle. * Journal of Religion *show more
