Will, according to Augustine, is based on love.� Will is defined by the choices it makes, and the choices are driven by �loves�.� Another thing Augustine thinks (which David Hume picked up) is that reason is, and ought to be, the slave of the passions.� The mind is extremely selective.�� Aristotle and Plato thought that you could beat this problem with the discipline of mind over the will.� Aquinas has not only an intellectual vision of the afterlife, he thinks that the intellect has primacy over the will;� he thinks that the will is bound to follow what the mind realizes.� This teaching is thoroughly rejected in the Condemnations.� With this doctrine, your will is compelled, necessarily, to follow, and you have determinism.� This is why Christians today have a deep disdain for behaviorism.� So the first effect of the Condemnations was a return to Voluntarism, the primacy of will.� This revived Augustinianism was voiced most by the Franciscans (of the intelligensia).� Voluntarism and Nominalism arose out of a need to protect theology from Aristotelian philosophy.� Given this, how can these later medieval era philosophers be classified as Aristotelians at all?� Scholasticism had become extremely elaborate:� a form of writing, extraordinarily developed using Aristotelian vocabulary, but using it to turn Aristotle inside out!

(2, 484)� Whereas the will is a free power for Scotus, the intellect is not, and the will can play an important role in what one considers to be true download Duns Scotus (Great Medieval Thinkers) pdf.
