Scotism, Palamism, and Thomism

I commend this illuminating interview with Dr Jared Isaac Goff on the differences and commonalities of Scotism, Palamism, and Thomism. Dr Goff is a Byzantine Catholic who teaches theology at the SS. Cyril and Methodius Byzantine Seminary. He clearly knows his stuff but is also humble enough to acknowledge the limits of his knowledge on specific topics. His specialties are St Bonaventure and John Duns Scotus. He takes us into the depths of medieval metaphysics, particularly on the questions of divine simplicity, analogy of being, and the divine energies. I confess that much of his analysis is well above my puny mind, but I’m sure glad there are people out there like Dr Goff who are well-versed in the difficult and complex topics he addresses.
