Abstract | Full Text

"The Question of the Subject of Moral Virtues in the Ordinatio of John Duns Scotus": The article discusses John Duns Scotus’s claim that moral virtues reside in the will as in their subject. It concludes that Scotus represents a position contrary to the common opinion of a large number of his predecessors, not only in relation to virtues but also in relation to the power of the soul and its role in moral life. It also contains a translation of a passage from Ordinatio III, 33, a unique question in which Scotus, after having considered and contested the position of Thomas Aquinas regarding the subject of moral virtues, gives his own opinion on the topic.
