Description

Thomas Williams presents the most extensive collection of John Duns Scotus's work on ethics and moral psychology available in English. John Duns Scotus: Selected Writings on Ethics includes extended discussions-and as far as possible, complete questions-on divine and human freedom, the moral attributes of God, the relationship between will and intellect, moral and intellectual virtue, practical reasoning, charity, the metaphysics of goodness and rightness,
the various acts, affections, and passions of the will, justice, the natural law, sin, marriage and divorce, the justification for private property, and lying and perjury.

Relying on the recently completed critical edition of the Ordinatio and other critically edited texts, this collection presents the most reliable and up-to-date versions of Scotus's work in an accessible and philosophically informed translation.

Review quote

This superb collection of translated texts will do a great deal to make the ethical thought of Duns Scotus familiar to a new generation of Anglophone scholars. * Richard Cross, University of Notre Dame, Studies in Christian Ethics * This anthology by Thomas Williams testifies to his impressive skills, both as an editor and as a translator of Duns Scotus's notoriously troublesome Latin * Bonnie Kent, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
