Chapter Summary

In this chapter on Scotus, the author uses his distinctive adaptation of Anselmian affectiones to accomplish two tasks. First, it shows that although Scotus follows Anselm by adopting the affectiones doctrine, he does so in such a way as to avoid the negative implications. Second, the chapter offers an affectio-based answer to the question of how an agent can be expected to recognize the unsettledness caused by a MOI/LII as a warning to be heeded. This will solve the one remaining issue related to Type-2/Variation A NO's. Of course, this solution is based upon assuming a theory of action that incorporates affectiones of the will. The chapter points out a different solution to note that Scotus has, within his own writings, the resources with which to deal with one important type of NO.

Keywords: Anselmian affectiones; Scotus; type-2/variation A NO
