Editorial Reviews

Review

Certainly, Allan B. Wolter had a nose for core metaphysical issues! If his translation and commentary on De Primo Principio x-ray the structure of Scotus understanding of essential order and of cause, the present volume gives equal access to Scotus analyses of act and potency. Scotus text, along with Wolter s clarifying translation and commentary, introduce us to fundamental distinctions between potency as mode-of-being versus potency-as-functional-principle or cause, between active versus passive potency, natural versus obediential potency, and rational versus irrational, voluntary versus natural powers. Crowning the work is an extensive development of Scotus notion of will as a self-determining power for opposites without succession. This volume will be invaluable for helping students understand what Scotus views are and how his metaphysics differs from that of Aquinas, Godfrey of Fontaines, and Henry of Ghent. We remain in Wolter's debt. --Marilyn McCord Adams

Allan B. Wolter, O.F.M., an outstanding giant in scholarship on Blessed John Duns Scotus, died November 15, 2006, nine days shy of his 93rd birthday. Fr. Allan occasionally taught philosophy on the campus of St. Bonaventure University during the summers in the 1950s and 1960s. He also returned to campus in 1998 as the first Fr. Joseph A. Doino, O.F.M. Visiting Professor of Franciscan Studies. He retired from active academic life in November 2002, returning to his home province of the Friars Minor of the Sacred Heart (St. Louis, MO), where he joined his friar-brother, Martin Wolter. He moved to the friar s retirement community in Sherman, Illinois, where he lived until requiring hospice care in Springfield, Illinois a few days before his death.
