Summary

Chapters 1–5 constitute Part I of the book, entitled “Free Will,” about the principal theories of free will from the 1220s–1320s and their background in Aristotle and earlier medieval thinkers. Chapter 1 gives an overview of the accounts of free will by Anselm of Canterbury, Bernard of Clairvaux, and Peter Lombard. Then it sketches the history of the reception of Aristotle’s action theory and offers an account of the principal Aristotelian doctrines that are relevant to later medieval theories of free will.
