I am fairly new to medieval philosophy, and was wondering if anyone here has had more exposure and can assist me with the following:

Having just finished an examination of Ghent’s ‘Summa Quaestionum Ordinarium’ with reference to other pieces by Augustine including ‘Against the Academics’ and ‘City of God’ and ‘On Free Choice’, I am left with some problems that Scotus’ reply to Ghent does not clear up for me. Hopefully some of the more learned posters here can help me out.

I’m wondering if Ghent postulates how exactly it is that one is illuminated divinely. I notice Aristotles abstractions and the later appeal to god ‘slipping concepts into the mind of humans’ but nothing on his own opinion.

Secondly, would Ghent postulate that a newborn baby is capable of utilising the three acts of intellect abd subsequently gaining divine illumination, and if not, is this evidence of the theories falsifiability?

Thank you in advance for any replies.
