Editorial Reviews


'...the first systematic book-length study of Duns Scotus doctrine of the categories and an extremely useful sketch of his views on logic generally...a remarkable achievement in every sense...His volume should, of course, be carefully studies by specialists in medieval philosophy, but perhaps even more so by philosophers working in contemporary metaphysics.' Timothy Noone, The Review of Metaphysics, 2006. 'Pini's book is a fine introduction to the doctrine of second intentions in the latter half of the thirteenth century as well as an authoritative presentation of Scotus's views on the categories and on the Aristotelian writing that bears that name.' John F. Wippel, Speculum, 2004 '...well written and informative...the first full-length study of Scotus's logical writings in well over a century.' Lloyd A. Newton, American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, 2002.
