John Duns Scouts is known to be one of the three most important philosopher-theologians of the High Middle Ages and is considered to have influenced the catholic church as well as secular thinking. However, Scouts’ surprising death had left a bundle of unfinished work to be edited by his students and disciples who managed to mismatch thoughts by Scouts and many other thinkers into a mass of thoughts that is not completely related to self. This mismatch led to the 16th century thinkers to regard Scouts as a duncical thinker; one who is not too bright.
