Single Idea 14766

[catalogued under 14. Science / B. Scientific Theories / 1. Scientific Theory]

Full Idea

The works of Duns Scotus have strongly influenced me. …His logic and metaphysics, torn away from its medievalism, …will go far toward supplying the philosophy which is best to harmonize with physical science.

Gist of Idea

Duns Scotus offers perhaps the best logic and metaphysics for modern physical science
