Most widely held works by Allan B Wolter
Duns Scotus on the will and morality by John Duns Scotus( )

29 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and German and held by 1,860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the original publication of Duns Scotus on the Will and Morality in 1986, there has been a remarkable growth of interest in the thought of this early fourteenth-century Franciscan master. Allan B. Wolter's critically acclaimed book inspired much of the inquiry, and today it remains the standard source on Scotus' moral philosophy." "This new edition of the book retains the introduction and English translations of the original thirty-four selections of texts from Scotus' writings on the will and morality. In addition to a substantially expanded bibliography, the volume includes a preface written by William A. Frank."--BOOK JACKET
God and creatures; the quodlibetal questions by John Duns Scotus( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first major work of the famous mediaeval scholastic theologian John Duns Scotus to be translated into English in its entirety. One of the towering intellectual figures of his age, Scotus has had a lasting influence on Western philosophy comparable only to that of Thomas Aquinas. The questions Scotus discusses on the subject 'God and Creatures' were originally presented to him in the course of a quodlibetal dispute, a public debate popular in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. In revising the questions for publication, Scotus wove in much of his basic philosophy and theology, making this work one of the mainstays on which his reputation as a thinker depends

Volume three of Scotus works
Duns Scotus, metaphysician by William A Frank( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study takes the form of commentary on a series of texts and translations from the works of Scotus. After a short (and perhaps unduly compressed) chapter laying out some of what we know about Scotus's life and writings, Wolter and Frank offer a brief introduction to the discipline of metaphysics as Scotus understood it. Scotus held that metaphysics is the science of the transcendentals, which are 'a family of concepts ... [that] capture the intelligibility of reality prior to its division into the categories' (p. 37). This science reaches its culmination in the philosophical knowledge of God
