Voluntariness, Choice, and Will in the Ethics Commentaries of Albert the Great and Thomas Aquinas
Documenti E Studi Sulla Tradizione Filosofica Medievale 17:71-92 (2006)
The article studies the reception of Aristotle’s treatments of voluntariness and decision (EN 3.1–5) in the first three Latin commentaries (two by Albert the Great, one by Thomas Aquinas) that are based on the integral text of the Nicomachean Ethics. In particular, my goal is to examine how Albert’s and Thomas’s non-Aristotelian concepts of the will as a faculty distinct from reason influences their explanations of the Aristotelian account. It is argued that the Dominican commentators emphasize the idea of freedom more than Aristotle did.
