  8. The Esse/Essentia Argument in Aquinas's De ente et essentia.Scott Charles MacDonald - 1984 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 22 (2):157-72.
    The purpose of the article is to offer a detailed exegetical analysis of the argument in chapter four of "de ente et essentia" in which aquinas argues for a distinction between "esse" and essence and to develop an interpretation of it on the basis of the analysis. I argue that the reconstructed argument shows that aquinas argues for a real distinction and that he establishes it earlier in the argument than some commentators have thought. I criticize a rival interpretation of (...)

  10. Petit larceny, the beginning of all sin: Augustine’s theft of the Pears.Scott Macdonald - 2003 - Faith and Philosophy 20 (4):393-414.
    In his reflections on his adolescent theft of a neighbor’s pears, Augustine first claims that he did it just because it was wicked. But he then worries that there is something unacceptable in that claim. Some readers have found in this account Augustine’s rejection of the principle that all voluntary action is done for the sake of some perceived good. I argue that Augustine intends his case to call the principle into question, but that he does not ultimately reject it. (...)

    In this paper I investigate the philosophical developments at the heart of what appears to be the earliest systematic formulation of the doctrine of the transcendentals by comparing the first questions of Philip the Chancellor''sSumma de bono (the so-called first treatise on the transcendentals — ca. 1230) with its immediate ancestor, a small group of questions from William of Auxerre''sSumma aurea (ca. 1220). I argue that Philip''s innovative position on the relation between being and goodness, the centerpiece of his doctrine (...)

    Ockham on Concepts.John Marenbon & Scott MacDonald - 2004 - Routledge.
    William of Ockham is known to be one of the major figures of the late Middle Ages. The scope and significance of his doctrine of human thought, however, has been a controversial issue among scholars in the last decade, and this book presents a full discussion of recent developments. Claude Panaccio proposes a richly documented and entirely original reinterpretation of Ockham's theory of concepts as a coherent blend of representationalism, conceptual atomism, and non reductionist nominalism, stressing in the process its (...)

  26. How can one search for God?: The paradox of inquiry in Augustine's confessions.Scott Macdonald - 2008 - Metaphilosophy 39 (1):20–38.
    The Confessions recounts Augustine 's successful search for God. But Augustine worries that one cannot search for God if one does not already know God. That version of the paradox of inquiry dominates and structures Confessions 1–10. I draw connections between the dramatic opening lines of book 1 and the climactic discussion in book 10.26–38 and argue that the latter discussion contains Augustine 's resolution of the paradox of inquiry as it applies to the special case of searching for God.

    Foundations in Aquinas's ethics.Scott MacDonald - 2008 - Social Philosophy and Policy 25 (1):350-367.
    Aquinas argues that practical reasoning requires foundations: first practical principles (ultimate ends) grasped by us per se from which deliberation proceeds. Contrary to the thesis of an important paper of Terence Irwin's, I deny that Aquinas advances two inconsistent conceptions of the scope of deliberation and, correspondingly, two inconsistent accounts of the content of the first practical principles presupposed by deliberation. On my account, Aquinas consistently takes first practical principles to be highly abstract, general, or formal ends, ends subject to (...)

  32. Augustine's Confessions: Critical Essays.Paul Bloom, Gareth B. Matthews, Scott MacDonald, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Paul Helm, Ishtiyaque Haji, Garry Wills & Richard Sorabji - 2006 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Unique in all of literature, the Confessions combines frank and profound psychological insight into Augustine's formative years along with sophisticated and beguiling reflections on some of the most important issues in philosophy and theology. The essays contained in this volume, by some of the most distinguished recent and contemporary thinkers in the field, insightfully explore Augustinian themes not only with an eye to historical accuracy but also to gauge the philosophical acumen of Augustine's reflections.

    Aquina's Ultimate Ends: A Reply to Grisez.Scott MacDonald - 2001 - American Journal of Jurisprudence 46 (1):37-49.
    A large part of the ambitious project that Grisez sketches in his paper can reasonably be thought of as developing and extending in interesting ways ideas of Thomas Aquinas. But in Part IV of the paper Grisez dramatically parts company with Aquinas on what might seem a fundamental issue. Aquinas famously holds that human beings find their ultimate fulfillment in beatific vision of God. Grisez tells us that, as he understands that claim, it is false.

    This volume is an important supplement to the two volumes in the series of Cambridge Histories covering the philosophy of the Middle Ages. Dronke's book, which adopts the format of the latter volume, is intended to fill the gap between them. It contains sixteen contributions by fifteen scholars. The contributions are arranged in four parts. The four essays in part 1, "Background," provide useful summaries of the intellectual inheritance that provides the cultural environment for what has been called the twelfth-century (...)

    On Divine Foreknowledge (Part IV of the Concordia).Scott MacDonald - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 43 (1):177-179.
    Contemporary philosophers, especially philosophers of religion, are learning that they can ignore the work of medieval philosophers and theologians only at the risk of having to reinvent the wheel or proceed on foot when better transportation is available. But the inaccessibility of medieval thought to modern readers is a substantial impediment to anyone who wants to bring its resources to bear on modern discussions: the vast majority of texts remains untranslated and their dense and highly technical contents often remain impenetrable (...)

    From very early on, Western philosophers have been obsessed with the understanding of a relatively few works of philosophy which have played a disproportionately large and fundamental role in developing the Western philosophical canon, dominating the curriculum in the past and in the present; there is no indication that they will not do so in the future.Uses and Abuses of the Classics examines the various ways in which the different periods of the history of philosophy have approached these texts.
