Chapter Summary

Antonius Andreae, Francis of Marchia, and Nicholas Bonet often appear in close succession in recent studies of 14th-century metaphysics. Antonius made evident John Duns Scotus conception of metaphysics as the science of being qua being. Francis of Marchia produced a typical question commentary on Metaphysics, setting forth his position, probably as part of lectures in the Franciscan studia. Nicholas Bonet explicitly rewrites (Aristotelian) philosophy to reflect the teaching of Scotus and Parisian Scotists. This chapter presents a brief biographical description of each author's works, followed by a focus on the Metaphysics-related texts, what survives, what access may be had to it, how the works are organized, and what the author's main doctrinal points are. It concludes with an examination of doctrine that illustrates the work being considered, and reveals the thinker's approach to philosophy.
