Abstract

This article aims to give a brief survey of some of the major secondary literature on Duns Scotus (c. 1266-1308) from 1999 to the present, under the following headings: universals and individuation (including discussion of Scotus's analysis of different kinds of identity and distinction); modal theory (both the nature of modalities and their origin); cognitive psychology (the ontological status of conceptual content and the question of objects of thought internal to the mind); semantics (the ways in which words signify concepts and/or things); logic (the nature of Aristotle's Categories and the logic of counterfactuals); and divine command metaethics.
