PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Two works of Aristotelian scholastic philosophy, the first on the soul, the second on metaphysics. The first work covers the tripartite nature of the soul, the soul's relation to the body, the five senses, consciousness (sensus internus), the intellect, and whether the soul is immortal. The latter deals with being (ens), analogy, and the difference between substance, essence, and existence. It also discusses separate substances, angels, and divine simplicity. A letter from Isaac Husek dated 1933 about this manuscript is tipped in at the beginning. Most pages include marginal annotations in a contemporary hand.
