This work is the first English translation of Scotus’:s commentary on Aristotle’:s Quaestiones super Praedicamenta. Although there are numerous Latin commentaries on Aristotle’:s Categories, Scotus’:s Questions is one of the few commentaries on the Categories written in the thirteenth century covering all of Aristotle’:s text, including the often neglected post-praedicamenta, and the only complete Latin commentary available in English. Moreover, unlike many of the commentaries, Scotus’:s text is one of the last commentaries to be written before the nominalist reduction of the categories to substance and quality. The question format allows Scotus a great deal of liberty to discuss the categories in detail, as well as matters that are only remotely raised by the text. Altogether, the forty-four questions cover the following subjects: questions 1–:4 are prolegomena to the work itself and raise the question of its subject matter as well as whether there can be a science of the categories: questions 5–:8 deal with equivocal, univocal, and denominatives: questions 9–:11 discuss Aristotle’:s two rules regarding predication and the sufficiency of the categories: questions 12–:36 discuss the four main categories treated by Aristotle, namely, substance, quantity, relation, and quality: and the remaining eight questions discuss the post-praedicamenta.
