Description

The influence of Aristotle’s Categories on medieval philosophy can hardly be overstated and the last decade’s scholarship concerning the scholastic reception of this work discloses markedly different interpretations of the Categories on the part of various medieval thinkers that, in turn, help us to understand the development of important philosophical topics well into the sixteenth century. Duns Scotus’ Categories commentary appears around 1295 and stands out among late thirteenth-century treatments as quite unusual owing to a variety of interpretive strategies used by Scotus to develop a scientia of the categories. This session considers Scotus' seminal work and its ramifications on subsequent medieval thought, in anticipation of Lloyd Newton's forthcoming edition of Scotus' Categories Commentary (CUA).
