- KurzbeschreibungAn introduction to and technical study of the notion of &8220;subsistence&8221;, this book provides a comprehensive historical survey and systematic evaluation of theories of personality from the early Christian period to modern day. The book focuses exclusively on formal accounts of personality, thereby allowing for a clear approach to the philosophical and theological issues directly relevant to defining the person. Hipp evaluates competing theories and distills from them the principles on which a coherent doctrine of subsistence is based. Useful summaries, tables of classification and flow charts help to set forth the overall parameters of the problem.<br>The book also offers a protracted investigation of the historically most important accounts of personality: those of Albert the Great, Thomas Aquinas and John Duns Scotus. The subsistence theories of each of these men are closely examined and compared, in such a way as to illustrate their points of convergence or of fundamental opposition. Hipp&8217;s analysis is especially original for its attempt to reduce the (commonly perceived) chasm between Scotus and Thomas, and he invites Thomists and Scotists to think more &8220;open-mindedly&8221; about strong lines of convergence between Scotus and Thomas.<br>The final part of the book presents a comprehensive &8220;model&8221; for organizing the metaphysical concepts and perspectives from which to build any theory of subsistence. The author provides a unique set of tools able to lend themselves to philosophical discussion or to serve as visual aids for philosophical or theological instruction.
