Question:

What is "common nature" according to Duns Scotus?

Inactive
John H.
Answer:

John Duns Scotus argues, following Avicenna, that there is some principle of universality which is neither itself universal nor particular. This principle he calls the "common nature" to distinguish it from the particular nature and the universal nature. "Humanity" is an example of the common nature. It is not entirely universal since it is unable to be predicated of the particular creatures as the universal is (Socrates is NOT a humanity; Socrates is a man), yet neither is it particular since it is not necessary to be THIS particular man to have humanity.

Question:

What is the purpose of the Grand Inquisitor episode in The Brothers Karamazov?

Inactive
John H.
Answer:

Dostoyevsky makes use of Ivan's Grand Inquisitor to expose the modern atheist's comprehension of the Christian religion as deficient. Christ as depicted in the Grand Inquisitor episode resembles neither the Christ of Christian religion, nor the Christ as understood by authoritative voices within the context of the novel. Ivan, therefore, maintains valid criticisms against the religion he has concocted, yet Dostoyevsky rejects this religion as a straw-imitation.

Question:

What is the importance of studying English?

Answer:

Grammar plays an essential role in all human knowledge, science, and industry, since all human thought is conveyed through language and good knowledge of grammar is necessary for the good use of language. Grammar can be studied using any language—oftentimes it is useful to study it in a foreign language so to avoid complacency—but more often than not a country's dominant language and the student's native language are the best candidates for the study of grammar.
