Etienne Gilson's Jean Duns Scot: Introduction a ses positions fondamentales is widely understood to be one of the most important works on John Duns Scotus' texts, which are famous for their complexity. This volume is the first translation into English, with an introduction by Trent Pomplun and an afterword by John Millbank. John Duns Scotus is known for his work in natural theology and this work offers a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental positions he stood for. Scotus contributed to the development of a metaphysical system that was compatible with Christian doctrine, an epistemology that altered the 13th century understanding of human knowledge, and a theology that stressed both divine and human will. Scotus' brilliantly complex and nuanced thought, which earned his the nickname "the Subtle Doctor", left a mark on discussions of such disparate topics as the semantics of religious language, the problem of universals, divine illumination, and the nature of human freedom.
