Abstract

The goal of this session is to investigate the development of the doctrine of analogy within the Scotist tradition. The first paper will show how Henry of Ghent analysis of analogy may be regarded as the source of Scoto’s discussion on the matter. The second contribution will offer a sketch of the features of both Scotus’ doctrine of univocity and the related critique to the theory of analogy. The last paper will focus on the evolution of the theory of analogy in the works of some later Thomists: John Versor, Sylvester of Ferrara, John of St. Thomas and Cajetan.
