Chapter Summary

John Buridan, when commenting the Treatise on the Soul of Aristotle, emphasizes the unity, probably in reaction against John of Janduns position. From the middle of 14th century till the end of 17th, this problem goes on being debated through the two questions of the substantial unity of the soul and of the relation between the soul and its potencies. This chapter studies some stages of this development, some of them immediately after Buridan, in Nicole Oresmes and Peter of Aillys positions, another more distant, in Antoine Rubios work. It suggests that we find still the same problematics, reelaborated and transformed, in Descartes.

Keywords: Aristotle; Buridan; Descartes; John of Jandun; Treatise on the Soul
