    As Light Belongs to Air: Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart on the Existential Rootlessness of Creatures.Andrew T. LaZella - 2013 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 87 (4):567-591.
    Both Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart draw on the image of illuminated air to explain how being belongs to creatures. While for Aquinas the image reveals how an actus essendi can be a creature’s own, and yet not belong to it by means of its essential nature, Eckhart employs the image to show that being merely flows through creatures without taking up root as a real quality. Eckhart’s parsing of the image, I argue, invokes his claim that nothing is formally (...)

    Siger of Brabant on Divine Providence and the Indeterminacy of Chance.Andrew Lazella - 2011 - International Philosophical Quarterly 51 (4):483-500.
    The compatibility of divine providence with the contingency of human freedom is widely-debated within medieval thought. Following recent works on the Islamicphilosopher Averroes, this essay expands the issue of causal indeterminism to include the less disputed question of contingency in the larger framework of chance. In tradition of Latin Averroism, Siger of Brabant provides a unique and heterodox perspective on the compatibility of chance with providence. Unlike his fellow scholastics who attempt to preserve contingency under the watchful gaze of divine (...)

    De Aventure: Matter, Causal Violence, and the Event Worthy of Its Name.Andrew T. Lazella - 2014 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 18 (2):373-394.
    That the category of violent causation has passed from the register of “useful” scientific categories is without question. And yet, in a time of ecological crisis, this conceptual atavism reflects not some idyllic pre-modern past, but the present ubiquity of causal violence. Tracing a course through medieval Aristotelianism will show not only that violence cannot be reduced to artificial production, but also that its operation remains phantasmatic insofar as it seeks to exclude the very condition upon which it is founded: (...)

    The Clinamen of Community: Duns Scotus's Political Ontology.Andrew LaZella - 2016 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 30 (3):316-327.
    The conflagration of community stands as the “gravest and most painful testimony of the modern world.”1 So begins Jean-Luc Nancy’s The Inoperative Community. But as he quickly shows, it is not a return to a premodern communal intimacy that we should seek. The lost intimacy of community is a lost immanence. The question, instead, must be: Can absolute immanence be undone through community? “Community, or the being-ecstatic of Being itself? That would be the question.”2To answer this question, I turn to (...)
