Resumen

Scotus claims that Christ's human nature depends on the second person of the Trinity (he describes a relationship of dependence that a nature, as communicable, has on its suppositum) in a way analogous to that in which an accident depends on a substance. He also claims that Christ's human accidents depend on Christ's human nature. This article addresses whether or not these dependence relations are transitive, and concludes that Scotus denied the transitivity of such dependence relations in order to bring him closer to Zwingli’s view -not Luther’s-, regarding the Christological question.

Resumen: Escoto declara que la naturaleza humana de Cristo depende, como comunicable, de la segunda figura trinitaria, en modo semejante a la dependencia del accidente respecto a la sustancia. Sostiene asimismo que las inherencias a esa naturaleza dependen de su suppositum. Este artículo deniega a tales dependencias el carácter transitivo que asiste a algunas relaciones de predicación sobre la teórica no autosuficiencia objetiva de la naturaleza, acercando la posición de Escoto a la de Zwinglio.
