Speaking of the rivalry between Thomas Aquinas and Duns Scotus, the theologian Abraham Heidan remarks, Ubi quod Thomas versimiliter astruit, Scotus probabilius destruit, et sem- per novam quaestionem quaestio gignit, ut nihil sit tam absurdum, quod non in clientelam alicujus recipiatur: atque ita ob perpetuas altercationes et pravam illam consuetudinem de omnibus rebus pro et contra disputandi, veritati suum perit decus et pretium Neque scholas solum et monacho- rum claustra infecit hoc malum, sed et aulas, utinam ne quoque et animos Principum, invasit.
Vel Scholasticos Doctores mihi vide, qui derelicta scaturigine aquarum perennium, et rationis sibi permissae, et nullo freno cohibitae arbitrio omnia mysteria metientes, ef- foderunt sibi cisternas, cisternas fractas, quae non capiunt aquas. As previous au- thors, Heidan treats Thomas Aquinas and Duns Scotus together, providing his own parallelism after the manner of Christoph Binder. Such stylistic flourishes are simple enough that we need not claim any direct influence. Their importance lies in their banality.

The association of Scholasticism with atheism, Deism and skepticism is more serious. In Heidan, as general- ly in Historiae philosophicae in the Low Countries during the seventeenth century, the association is largely rhetorical; in the grand German tradition of histories of philosophy stretching from Adam Tribbechow , through Jakob Thomasius , Johann Franz Budde and Johann Jakob Brucker , the charges of atheism and its as- sorted evils will be given more specific philosophical justification.

Note too the public disputation over which Thomasius presided on 22 December L. Qua insuper habita non potuit res non devenire ad univocationem. Quam ideo hic defendit tota Scotistarum pariter et Nominalium secta. By a rather simple application of dialectic, Thomasius discovers Platonism in everyone who does not agree with his particular understanding of Aristotle, even as he goes out of his way to defend Aristotle against charges of dualism.
A twin genealogy thereby follows: the false Platonism of the Church fathers leads to mysti- bly the source of the confusion surrounding the title. Thomasius appears ignorant of the great Sco- tist commentators of the seventeenth century. Presumably Thomasius would have taken the term from A.
Trent Pomplun cism and enthusiasm; the false Aristotelianism of the Scholastics leads to vanity and quibbling; both, however, spring from the contempt for the sim- ple, the longing for novelty and the prurient curiosity for pagan ways of philosophizing. The method is sim- ple, effective and tempting. With a single idea upon which to hang the his- tory of philosophy say, the proper understanding of the object of meta- physics and a simple application of dialectic, type and anti-type, Thomasius can tell the history of philosophy—indeed, the history of be- ing—in less than a hundred small pages.
Both Tribbechow and Thomasius were cited as authorities throughout the eighteenth century, even as the commitment to Aristotle waned in Ger- man universities under the increased pressure of eclecticism, Wolffianism, Lockeanism and Kantianism. Occasionally, we see minor, but notable, ad- ditions to their syntheses. Tribbechow, for example, was the principal source used by Johann Jacob von Ryssel for his expansion of the De philosophorum sectis of Johannes Gerardus Vossius Theologians explored the baleful influ- ence of Platonism upon the early Church with some frequency; see I.
On the use of these arguments by Budde and others, see M. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy rerum Scientiae corrumperentur, in causa fuerunt partim veteres Magistri Arabes, partim Antichristus, Dictator Scholasticorum.
Trent Pomplun ther Scholastic philosophy nor the novatores, Budde singles out Albertus Magnus and Roger Bacon as scientists working against the grain of their times in anticipation of the blossoming of natural philosophy in the seven- teenth century. Such typological readings of history were common in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. An oft-cited example is J. Nec enim universale illorum formale a parte rei, aut unitatem formalem a par- te rei, aliud quid sibi voluisse, quam quod deinceps Spinoza apertius elo- cutus est, et majori eruditionis specie proposuit Sane quidem istam Sco- tistarum hypothesin, universalia citra intellectus operationem re ipsa exis- tere, omniaque individua de una eademque essentia, non specie, sed nu- mero tali, participare, ad Spinozismum ducere, aut non multum ab eo dif- fere, negari nequit.
An vero Scotistae omnes, quae ex hacce hypothesi fluunt, dogmata impia perspexerint, vel, si perspicere potuissent, adproba- turi fuissent, id quidem est, de quo merito dubito. Nec enim aliud illorum universale formale a parte rei, aut unita- tem formalem a parte rei sibi voluisse, quam quod deinceps apertius elocutus est Spinoza, et maiori eruditionis specie hominibus propinavit. Tertia priores impudentia vicit, illumque quasi in thronum collocavit Vossius had distinguished philological and philosophical approaches to history before Heumann, of course.
Comfortable assuming a teleological thrust in history that was broadly Protestant, Vossius devoted his historical studies to philology accordingly. Heumann, on the other hand, felt that the rentur. Lipsiae quondam haec fuit iuramenti formula: Ego N. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy philological study of the history of philosophy sacrificed a genuine historia philosophica for a mere historia philosophiae.
In other words, the historian must write as a philosopher who judges both philosophical systems and the historical con- nections between them according to an inner philosophical logic. Those with strong memories, but neither imagination nor judgment, become Scho- lastics. Whatever genius they possess is merely passive. To the extent that such men and women might be said to possess genius, it is active but false. Such genius has the character of the merely charismatic. That said, Heumann does not treat individual Scholastic authors with any real depth: His treatment of medieval philosophy is content largely to perpetuate rather ordinary Lutheran prejudices.
Like Budde, Brucker accepts the standard division of medieval philosophy into early, middle and late periods, citing Daneau as his source. Trent Pomplun philosophy. Ex his autem cum de philosophia tum de theologia Thomae sine praejudicio sententiam ferre facile est, quam totam Scholasticos vultus exprimere, ipsa eius scrip- ta abunde testantur. In quibus cum ea in philosophia as theologiam appli- canda methodo uteretur, ut consensus patrum et Scripturae quidem quaesi- to, e overo ex rationibus metaphysicis et testimoniis philosophorum genti- lium confirmato, magnum doctrinae sacrae praesidium in philosophia Aristotelica poneret, moreque Arabum subtillissimas quaestiones et ambi- guas de divinis disputationes annecteret, perspicuum inde est, Scholasticos philosophiae vitia eum non sustulisse, sed auxisse.
Ita vero, qui fructus fuit scholasticae philosophiae pessimus, Pelagianismo, iam ab ipsis huius phi- losophiae natalibus in Ecclesia serpenti porta aperta est patentissima. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy Opponi quidem philosophiae et theologiae Scholasticae iam tum coepit theologia mystica, quam Ioannes Scotus Erigena ex libris Pseudo-Dionysii in Ecclesiam introduxit, et Enthusiasmo philosophiae Alexandrinae infec- tit.
Quae cum sterilitatem a Scholasticis ubique proditam exosa internam mentis emendationem et reductionem ad fontem suum, Deum, urgeret, melius sapuisse sibi visa est. Hinc contentiones, iurgia, anathemata, here- ticae labis obiecto, et quae alia fuerunt, ridicularum litium terriculamenta, quibus ad execrationes et diras usque pars utraque digladiata est. We have labored to this point largely to high- light these assumptions.
For Brucker, as with the German tradition general- ly, the purpose of writing a historia philosophiae philosophica is to train the mind to recognize philosophical errors, especially those that might con- duct one to deny the truths of Lutheranism: atheism, pantheism, Spinozism, Manichaeism, Pelagianism, etc.
Indeed, Brucker does not hesitate to define the term critica precisely as the discernment of these very rationes. He attempts to discern these spirits according to both the circumstantiae auctorum and the historia personarum. In this respect, any understanding of the veram philosophicae historiae indolem requires an historia philosophorum literarium. In them, theology and philosophy are inescapably mixed. It should come as no surprise that Lutheran histories of philosophy from Peucer to Brucker find their telos in Martin Luther, who threw off the shackles imposed by the papacy and allowed a truly Christian philosophy to flourish, whatever its school or method.
Others see Aquinas and Scotus as the true nadir, with Ockham beginning the slow ascent to the surface pre- cisely because he set about to restore the older traditions of Abelard and Roscellinus. Then, as now, much of such histories pivot on the relationship of Luther to nominalism. Some describe a waning of the Middle Ages, others the harvest of medieval theology. From Caspar Peucer through Jo- hann Jakob Brucker—with the notable exception of Jakob Thomasius—we see a fairly straightforward development in their treatments of John Duns Scotus, who is universally linked to Thomas Aquinas.
In the nine- teenth century, some of these themes waxed, others waned, while yet others re-combined or changed valence. The principal Italian historians of the eighteenth century, for example, tended to be critical of the philosophy of the Middle Ages, but for quite different reasons. Tommaso, o Sco- to, ma volendo a quelli aggiungere, e dal lor metodo saggio abusando con- dussero il lor furor disputante in quistioni capricciose, in bizarre, ed inutile sottigliezze, trascurando i SS. Thomas, persimilem Aristotelis interpretationem a condi- scipulis exaratam adhibuit. Hic plane dignus, quem summi viri Leibnitius, et Grotius celebrent; qui alter fuisset Cartesius, si tempora concurrissent, ut Fontenellius argute; Aristotelem emendavit, Arabum errores refellit.
In this respect, he places a special emphasis on the progress of scientific knowledge, and his history is more strictly linear than others we have seen. This is a bit strange, since Boureau-Deslandes begins his account of the third period of Scholasticism with Du- randus only two pages later. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy politics. Thomam praecipue sibi impu- gnandum sumpsisse, et quidem tanta subtilitate, ut in illo scholastic dicendi genere: nihil acutius, nihil accuratius, nihil solutius sit, Coeterum Matthaeus Ferchius Veglensis in Celeberrima Patavina Universitate Professor, in Apo- logia pro Scoto lib.

Each of the three books collected therein are numbered separately. Thomae in plerisque Antogonista, ex omnium sere sententia, fuisse traditur. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy information for more modern Scholastics up to his own day. He even pro- vides a survey of the universities, arranged by century and nation, where Scho- lastic philosophy continued to be cultivated.
Although eventually supplanted in the German tradition by Dieterich Tiedemann and Wilhelm Gottlieb Tennemann , it entered the Italian tradition through Appiano Buonafede , the Anglophone tradition through William Enfield and the Fran- cophone tradition through Victor Cousin In fact, their chief criticism of Brucker was that he lacked a sufficiently philosophical mind. Even so, anyone who reads the great nineteenth-century histories of philosophy cannot but notice a dramatic change in tone and content, especially as they concern themselves with John Duns Scotus and the philosophy of the Middle Ages.
On the other, we find in the Ger- man histories far more detailed discussions of Aquinas, Scotus and Ock- ham, usually divided by topics such as the relationship of faith and reason, their proofs for the existence of God, the status of universals, form and matter, individuation, the corporeality of angels, and so forth, with citations to the relevant texts and in the better histories actual quotations. Dieterich Tiedemann marks a genuine revolution in the history of histories of philosophy, especially in its treatment of the Middle Ages.
Tiedemann, who was broadly Wolffian in his philosophical sympa- thies with a little bit of Locke , neither romanticizes the philosophers of the Middle Ages nor demonizes them. Instead, in his Geist der spekulativen Philosophie, he recognizes the scientific progress made by such medieval philosophers as Albertus Magnus and Thomas Aquinas, while placing the fulfilment of human knowledge in the future perfection of humanity. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy judgment on the philosophical value of any given philosopher or philosoph- ical system, and he possesses obvious affinities with earlier eclectics like Christian Thomasius, Johann Franz Budde and Friedrich Gentzken.
The progress from one philosophical system to another—indeed, from the Middle Ages to modernity—owes as much to social conditions as it does to any inner necessity of thought. In his estimation, Scholastic philosophy had little originality in the matter of its system, which remained broadly Aristotelian, but was wholly original in its form, that is, its vocabulary, genres, questions and methods of disputations. If the Protestant Reformation made modern philosophy possible because it created a leisured middle class that could read without undue interference from papal authorities, then modern phi- losophy, even while being wholly original in its matter, still depends upon medieval philosophy for its form.

Tiedemann does not shy away from criticizing Scotus, but he supplies examples with genuine philosophical depth. Bey dem allen hat Scotus in genauerer Unterscheidung und richtigerer Bestimmung mancher der abstraktesten Begriffe, auszeichnendes Verdienst. In der allgemeinen Philosophie be- stimmt er den Begriff des Etwas oder Dinges in weitester Bedeutung res , richtiger auf folgende Art: Dies Wort wird in dreyerley Sinne, einem wei- testen, engeren, und engsten, genommen. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy is generally free of the rancor of previous historians.
Tiedemann, in short, is happy to acknowledge the positive, if anticipatory, aspects of medieval philosophy. Von diesem absoluten Despotismus Gottes, der an keine Regeln des Rechts und der Vernunft gebunden ist, sondern diese Regeln selbst macht, scheint Scotus erster Urheber. Trent Pomplun Gottlieb Buhle and Wilhelm Gottlieb Tennemann shared no such scruples and read the history of philosophy through a Kanti- an lens with uncommon vigor. In the fine German tradition that will extend into both hermeneutics and sociology, Buhle and Tennemann seek the genuine understanding Verstehen , rather than the mere knowledge, of any given philosopher or philosophical system.
Although he is a lesser figure in the history of philosophy, Buhle is instructive as an illustration of the prejudices about the Middle Ages still common during the Enlightenment. Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy lassen. Tennemann ap- pears to be rather conservative on the face of things. Tennemann treats many of the same figures as Tiedemann, in roughly the same sequence as Brucker. Tenne- mann does not question the authenticity of any of the works that Wadding attributes to Scotus.
For our purposes, we need note only that Tennemann interprets the conflict between realism and nominalism during the Middle Ages as a battle between dogmatism and skepticism, that is, in terms of the conflict between Wolff and Hume that animated Immanuel Kant before he awoke from his famous slumber. That conflict, whose solution for Tennemann remained inaccessible to the phi- losophers of the Middle Ages, ended in the dialectic retreat common in the older German histories.
If Tennemann wished to remove Kant from any purported struggle between realism and nominalism, which he saw as a problem only for pre-critical philosophy, he rightly recognized the importance of nominalism in modern philosophers before Kant. With Tennemann, then, we are but one short step removed from recasting the history of philosophy not as a struggle between realists and nominalists, but between empiricists and idealists. That move, once made, will lead to the revival of some old criticisms of Scotus as well as the creation of some new ones.
Trent Pomplun a prominent place given to the mystics, but divides the periods neatly with the division of schools into realists, formalists, nominalists and mystics. First, in order to accentuate the difference between Aquinas and Scotus, he uses a different set of texts than previous Protestant authors, including the spurious De rerum principio, which sets an unfortunate precedent for later historians.
Many historians in the nineteenth century followed Tennemann and Rixner in interpreting the storied battles between realists, nominalists and formalists as presentiments of modern philosophical struggles, a point al- ready noted by the theologian and classicist Otto Baumgarten-Crusius Often celebrated as the founder of eclecticism, Cousin criticizes each of his three main sources for writing the history of philosophy only from the vantage point of their schools.
But there is little new in this. If Brucker, Tiedemann and Tennemann are limited respectively by Wolffian, Lockean and Kantian presuppositions, each lacks a properly philosophical spirit, because each fails to be properly eclectic, just as Jakob Thomasius and the Orthodox Lutheran Aristotelians failed to practice philosophy freely according to Christian Thomasius, Johann Franz Budde and Frie- drich Gentzken.
Cousin also assumes the older notion of pragmatische Geschichte advanced by Heumann and Brucker, which saw various philo- sophical movements brought to relative perfection before being transcend- ed by more original systems. All Cousin has done is apply this reasoning to his predecessors. Dieser Wendepunkt der Scholstik tritt schon mit Duns Scotus ein.
Je genauer er zwischen Verstand und Willen unterschied, desto mehr trennte sich der Wille vom Verstand, und eben damit das Praktische vom Theoreti- schen, die Theologie von der Philosophie, der Glaube vom Wissen. He provides long representative quotations and valuable information on manuscripts available in Paris.
When he turns to Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas and Duns Scotus, how- ever, we see none of the detail of Tiedemann or Tennemann, nor even the bio- bibliographical detail of Brucker. He clearly wishes to set Scotus on the path to modernity, but he seems to be grasping at straws. Cousin springs back to life when he reaches the third age of Scholasticism, largely because it allows him to tout the scientific advances of Roger Bacon and the philosophical advances of William of Ockham, whom he sees as both a critic of Scotus and an antici- pation of Locke.

Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy ment such as it is goes something like this: Individuation requires signate matter; Duns Scotus believes individuation is occasioned by an individual form; because forms are not matter, Scotus denies the existence of individu- als. It may appear odd that Scotus, the prince of voluntarists, is here made a determinist, or that Scotus, the proto-empiricist, is here made to deny the existence of individuals.

It marks, however, one very important fault line in our sto- ry; from henceforth, those who saw themselves as restorers of Catholic philosophy largely abandoned any attempt to reconcile medieval and mod- ern philosophy. These Catholic authors, whom we shall encounter present- ly, were avid readers of the German histories, and so we should return for a short time to that tradition in order to bring it into the s.

Da zeigt nun schon sein und der Dominicaner Aristotelismus den Unterschied, dass Duns, freilich nicht ohne den Vorar- beiten der Anderen viel zu danken, mit dem Aristotelis mehr vertraut ist, als sie. At every point, Scotus is contrasted with Thomas Aqui- nas, but without judgment. In fact, if Erdmann believes Scotus to lay the egg that Ockham hatches, then he does not exclude Thomas Aquinas from the process.
Dass diese Wendung der Scholastik sich als ein siegrei- ches Hervortreten des Nominalismus gezeigt hat, darf nicht befremden. In his preface to the second edition, Erdmann remarks with evident sarcasm Sein Zweifeln thut dem Glauben keinen Ein- trag, er sagt nec fides exeludit omnem dubitationem, sed dubitationem vin- centem. The suggestion that Scotus would question the natural capacities of reason to prove the exist- ence of God seems strange in light of De primo principio.
He also remained a Lutheran. In this respect, the dangers of voluntarism for Ueberweg were still much the same as they were for Johann Jakob Brucker. It is to them that we owe the first at- tempts to place Scotus at the beginning of the end of medieval philosophy. Scholars usually attribute similar views to the first neo-Thomists who fol- lowed them. Their story, however, is slightly more complex, for the censure of Bonnetty prevented them from attributing the decay of Scholasticism to Scotus himself, who had to that point almost universally been treated with Thomas Aquinas in the standard histories of philosophy.
As John Inglis has shown, Kleutgen had hoped to restore traditional Scho- lasticism before , but the revolutions infused his mission with extra urgency. See especially J. Trent Pomplun and reason, with the epistemological realism of Thomas Aquinas placed as the centerpiece of the Scholastic synthesis that he proposed. Kleutgen ar- ranges the text of Die Philosophie der Vorzeit by subject matter, so he does not no much write a history as imply one. Although Kleutgen eagerly exposes the damage done by nominalism and formalism throughout his volume, he usually maintains a respectful reserve about Scotus himself.

From Thomas Aquinas, the summit of medieval thought, the twin evils of Scotist formalism and Ockhamist nominalism progress along two paths: formalism leads to Spinozan pantheism and onwards to German idealism; nominalism leads to the skepticism of Montaigne and Descartes and onwards to Hume and Kant.

A somewhat independent approach was taken by Otto Will- mann , who wrote the history of philosophy as the history of idealism and its alternatives. For Willman, Augustine represents true Chris- tian idealism, and the great Scholastics, Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas and Bonaventure, represent a realism that is yet compatible with Augustini- an idealism.
The broad tendency of Erdmann and Willmann finds expression later in W. He certainly resembles Kant in his refusal to accept without criticism any theory, no matter how universally received or how strongly supported by the authority of great names. The resemblance is accentuated by the fact that both Scotus and Kant are voluntarists, both maintaining that will is superior to intellect, and that human reason cannot demonstrate the truths which most vitally affect the destiny of man.
But, remarkable as the resemblance is, no less striking is the contrast between the two philosophers. Kant appeals to the moral consciousness to prove the truths which reason cannot demonstrate: Scotus, on the contrary, appeals to revelation. Trent Pomplun By this point, the use of the spurious De rerum principio to distinguish Scotus from Thomas was a common feature of academic treatments of the Subtle Doctor.
For Kant there is no court of appeal superior to the moral consciousness; for Scotus the supreme tribunal before which all truth is judged is divine revelation.
The influence of St. Bonaventure, Albert, and St. Thomas seems to have silenced for a while the contentions which distracted earlier school- men. It is among these lesser lights that Scotus, subtle and penetrating as his mind was, must be classed. Writing in , Alfred Vacant lamented the state into which studies of Duns Scotus had fallen. This seems to be the way everyone began studies of Scotus; cf. Trent Pomplun sujet de la nature des Universaux. Pluzanski a bien vu que Scot et S. Thomas au volonta- risme de Scot. Its importance lies in its self-conscious move from larger histories of philosophy to emerging studies devoted to John Duns Scotus, of which several appeared in the three and a half decades between Aeterni Patris and Postquam sanctissimus Duns Scotus in the History of Philosophy cerault led the charge to defend Duns Scotus from the accusa- tions found in both secular histories of philosophy and neo-Thomist manu- als.
