Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of Gerald Odonis. This book, the first collective volume on Odonis, shows that, as a thinker and author, Gerald Odonis stands out for his courage, clarity, independence, originality, and sometimes brilliance. Building on the recent scholarship of leading Odonis experts Bonnie Kent, L.M. de Rijk, and Christian Trottmann, the volume gathers together studies by most of the other living specialists who have dealt or are dealing extensively with Odonis' thought. These papers cover Odonis' ideas in economics, logic, metaphysics, ethics, natural philosophy, theology, and politics in works written over the entire span of his career. This book was influential is witnessed by the fact that Odonis' contempory Franciscan confrere Aufredo Gonteri Brito incorporated abbreviations of numerous questions from Odonis' commentary on II Sentences into his own Among his studies on Odonis' thought, Chris Schabel has also focused on Odonis' natural philosophy.

Keywords: Bonnie Kent; Chris Schabel; Christian Trottmann; Gerald Odonis; natural philosophy
