There is quite a lot of philosophically interesting material to be recovered from the debris of medieval speculation, more particularly in the field of logic and cognate interests. For example the significance of the distinction between esse subsistens or subsistent existing and esse commune or existing in general tends to be overlooked. Yet it is vital to the kind of synthesis of philosophical and theological speculation with which many of the medieval thinkers were preoccupied. What follows is an essay in drawing out the implications ofAquinas’s philosophico-theological synthesis with regard to a contemporary revaluation of the notion of creative order.
