Duns Scotus by Richard Cross( Book )

17 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on what is distinctive in his thought, and on issues where his insights might prove to be of perennial value, this is an accessible account of Duns Scotus's theology
Duns Scotus on God by Richard Cross( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Franciscan John Duns Scotus (c. 1266-1308) is the philosopher's theologian par excellence-more than any of his contemporaries, he is interested in arguments for their own sake. Making use of the tools of modern philosophy, Richard Cross presents a thorough account of Duns Scotus' arguments on God and the Trinity. Providing extensive commentary on central passages from Scotus, many of which are presented in translation in this book, Cross offers clear expositions of Scotus' elliptical writing. Cross' account shows that, in addition to being a philosopher of note, Scotus is a creative and original theologian who offers new insights into many old problems
The metaphysics of the incarnation : Thomas Aquinas to Duns Scotus by Richard Cross( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period from Thomas Aquinas to Duns Scotus is one of the richest in the history of Christian theology. This text aims to provide a thorough examination of the doctrine in this era, making explicit its philosophical and theological foundations
The physics of Duns Scotus : the scientific context of a theological vision by Richard Cross( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text contains detailed discussion and analysis of Dun Scotus's accounts of the nature of matter and the structure of material substance. His views on these matters are sophisticated and highly original
The medieval Christian philosophers : an introduction by Richard Cross( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The High Middle Ages were remarkable for their coherent sense of 'Christendom': of people who belonged to a homogeneous Christian society marked by uniform rituals of birth and death and worship. That uniformity, which came under increasing strain as national European characteristics became more pronounced, achieved perhaps its most perfect intellectual expression in the thought of the western Christian thinkers who are sometimes called 'scholastic theologians'. This book offers the first focused introduction to these thinkers based on the individuals themselves and their central preoccupations
Duns Scotus's theory of cognition by Richard Cross( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Cross provides the first complete and detailed account of Duns Scotus's theory of cognition, tracing the processes involved in cognition from sensation, through intuition and abstraction, to conceptual thought. He provides an analysis of the ontological status of the various mental items (acts and dispositions) involved in cognition, and a new account of Scotus on nature of conceptual content. Cross goes on to offer a novel, reductionist, interpretation of Scotus's view of the ontological status of representational content, as well as new accounts of Scotus's opinions on intuitive cognition, intelligible species, and the varieties of consciousness. Scotus was a perceptive but highly critical reader of his intellectual forebears, and this volume places his thought clearly within the context of thirteenth-century reflections on cognitive psychology, influenced as they were by Aristotle, Augustine, and Avicenna. As far as possible, this book traces developments in Scotus's thought during the ten or so highly productive years that formed the bulk of his intellectual life

Western philosophy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Greek and Roman philosophers. Beginning in Greece and Asia Minor, the birthplace of Western philosophy and the Pre-Socratics (Heraclitus of Ephesus, Parmenides of Elea, Zeno of Elea, Pythagoras of Croton, Anaxagoras of Clazomenae, Empedocles of Acragas). The program examines the nature of philosophy itself and what prompted the pioneers of antiquity to ask fundamental questions about human nature and our world. The chronological journey charts the development of philosophical thought, exploring its relationship with early mathematics and the natural and physical sciences. Discusses why the observations and theories of Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle remain valid in the twenty-first century. The turbulent period following the decline of the Roman Empire saw the rise of Christianity and the emergence of questions about the nature of God. Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Aquinas, and John Duns Scotus developed their own fusion of Christianity and classical philosophy. Examines why the ideas of Plato and Aristotle lived on through the philosophy of the early Christian theologians and helped form the foundations of modern Christian thought. Features location footage of ancient remains in Greece and Turkey and re-creations and reconstructions

Short-pulse Laser Capability on the Mercury Laser System( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applications using high energy ''petawatt-class'' laser drivers operating at repetition rates beyond 0.01 Hz are only now being envisioned. The Mercury laser system is designed to operate at 100 J/pulse at 10 Hz. We investigate the potential of configuring the Mercury laser to produce a rep-rated, ''petawatt-class'' source. The Mercury laser is a prototype of a high energy, high repetition rate source (100 J, 10 Hz). The design of the Mercury laser is based on the ability to scale in energy through scaling in aperture. Mercury is one of several 100 J, high repetition rate (10 Hz) lasers sources currently under development (HALNA, LUCIA, POLARIS). We examine the possibility of using Mercury as a pump source for a high irradiance ''petawatt-class'' source: either as a pump laser for an average power Ti:Sapphire laser, or as a pump laser for OPCPA based on YCa{sub 4}O(BO{sub 3}){sub 3} (YCOB), ideally producing a source approaching 30 J /30 fs /10 Hz--a high repetition rate petawatt. A comparison of the two systems with nominal configurations and efficiencies is shown in Table 1
