Lately, there was an upsurge of curiosity within the paintings Periphyseon of the early medieval thinker John Scot Eriugena. prior learn has categorized the publication both as a section of Neoplatonic philosophy or as a part of the Latin dialectic culture, which has resulted in one-sided interpretations. the current e-book focuses as a substitute at the philosophical claims defended within the Periphyseon itself, examines its originality and discusses the steadiness of its argumentation. hence, a hitherto left out uncomplicated considered the paintings has been exposed, particularly the concept that of a unfavourable ontology, in keeping with which all substance is totally incomprehensible. This inspiration constitutes the best innovation of Eriugena’s concept. in response to his unfavourable ontology, Eriugena downgrades the fourfold department of nature that he had provided at the start of his paintings. A severe survey of the present readings of Eriugena as a Neoplatonist and idealist completes this book.
In jüngerer Zeit rückt das Werk Periphyseon des frühmittelalterlichen Denkers Johannes Scottus Eriugena zunehmend in den Fokus der philosophischen Forschung. Die bisherigen Untersuchungen ordnen das Werk entweder der neuplatonischen Denkrichtung oder der lateinischen Dialektiktradition zu, und richten dementsprechend ihre Interpretation daran aus. Die vorliegende Veröffentlichung hingegen betrachtet vorrangig die Darstellung und Argumentation im Periphyseon selbst, prüft detailliert den Innovationsgehalt und die Überzeugungskraft der Aussagen. Als Ergebnis zeigt sich ein bislang ungesehener Grundgedanke des Werks, der einer negativen Ontologie. Diese Ontologie verneint jegliche Bestimmbarkeit aller Substanz. Sie macht die eigentliche Innovation in Eriugenas Denken aus. Im Hinblick auf diese löst er die zu Anfang des Werks präsentierte Vierteilung der Gesamtnatur wieder auf. Eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der bisherigen Einordnung Eriugenas als Neuplatoniker und Idealist rundet das Buch ab.
