Summary

This chapter considers the early Franciscan response to three further questions about the powers of the soul which arose from the early scholastic reading of Arabic philosophical sources particularly. These inquire whether the soul consists of one or three powers (vegetative, sensitive, and rational), whether the soul is identical with its powers, and whether the vegetative and sense powers survive the death of the body. As in Chapter 3, the Franciscan response to these questions is situated in relation to those provided by other early scholastic theologians.
