520    "In this book Tobias Hoffmann studies the medieval free 
       will debate during its liveliest period, from the 1220s to
       the 1320s, and clarifies its background in Aristotle, 
       Augustine, and earlier medieval thinkers. Among the wide 
       range of authors he examines are not only wellknown 
       thinkers such as Thomas Aquinas, Duns Scotus, and William 
       of Ockham, but also a number of authors who were just as 
       important in their time and deserve to be rediscovered 
       today. To shed further light on their theories of free 
       will, Hoffmann also explores their competing philosophical
       explanations of the fall of the angels, that is, the 
       hypothesis of an evil choice made by rational beings under
       optimal psychological conditions. As he shows, this test 
       case imposed limits on tracing free choices to cognition. 
       His book provides a comprehensive account of a debate that
       was central to medieval philosophy and continues to occupy
       philosophers today"--|cProvided by publisher
