Medieval Philosophy & Theology
First and Last Page
Recent critiques of theological fatalism-the position that divine foreknowledge is incompatible with creaturely freedom-have tended to attach themselves to one or another of the analyses put forward by various medieval thinkers. The latter include Boethius, Aquinas, Scotus, Ockham, and (under a sufficiently generous conception of 'medieval') Molina.1 Notable by his absence from this list is St. Augustine, whose De Libero Arbitrio is perhaps the Ur-text for the problem as it arises within a specifically theistic context.
