This week, an interview with Dr. Scott Williams, an analytic theologian, trained by some of the best out there, who loves to tackle those hard to read medieval philosopher-theologians like John Duns Scotus, Thomas Aquinas, and Henry of Ghent.
His main interest is in different versions of “LT” – “Latin,” as opposed to eastern or social Trinity theories. He sets out a theory he calls “soft LT” in opposition to a recent theory by Brian Leftow.
Buckle your metaphysical seat belts for this one! Divine nature, divine simplicity, indexicals, life-streams, substance, “persons,” incommunicable existents, tritheism – there’s a lot going on here. You philosophers out there will enjoy this one.
Thanks to Scott for a good interview, and for his contributions to this blog – speaking of which, here are some previous posts by Scott.
