Critical edition of James of Viterbo’s final questions De divinis praedicamentis and his De potentia et actu volendi

James of Viterbo (ca. 1255–1307), Augustinian friar, master of theology at the University of Paris, and archbishop of Naples, was one of the leading philosophers and theologians of the late thirteenth century. This volume completes the critical edition of his academic works and presents his last two questions De divinis praedicamentis and his three annexed questions on the will (De potentia et actu volendi). These questions, deriving from disputations James held as Augustinian regent master of theology at the University of Paris (1293–1297), offer rich discussions of important topics: whether the plurality of divine persons and attributes entails an order of priority within God and how causality may be attributed to God. The questions on the will cover issues at the core of late medieval debates on human freedom: on the unity of the will as a power of the soul, whether the will is the primary agent in human action, and whether the will is free with respect to all its acts.

This publication is GPRC-labeled (Guaranteed Peer-Reviewed Content).

James of Viterbo

Mark D. Gossiaux

Mark D. Gossiaux is professor of philosophy at Loyola University New Orleans (USA). Specializing in medieval philosophy and classical metaphysics, he is a leading authority on James of Viterbo.

Christopher D. Schabel

Christopher D. Schabel is a researcher at the Institut de recherche et d'histoire des textes of the CNRS, in Aubervilliers, France. He works on medieval intellectual history and the Latin East.

This book completes the edition of James of Viterbo’s works with the publication of the five ‘Quaestiones de divinis praedicamentis’ that never appeared in print before. Questions 28 and 29 constitute the final part of the original version of the work, whereas questions 30-32, on the will, were later incorporated into the work. Mark Gossiaux and Christopher Schabel have done an excellent job in establishing the text and making the remaining part of James’s main scholastic works available to the scholarly community.
