For Scotus, we can have a univocal concept of being. It is a concept that is common: not proper to any being, but rather a concept that is predicable of all beings, including God. It is a concept that Scotus describes as a distinct concept, since it leaves outside its ambit modes, such as “infinite” and “finite,” and ultimate differences. When Scotus reads Augustine’s text from Book VIII of On the Trinity, he reads it differently from Henry: “You understand this good or this being and that good or that being.

Auriol does not, however, argue for a concept of being that is distinct: it is a concept that excludes nothing. ” It arrives at proper concepts by making explicit what is only implicit in the concept of being. When Auriol meditates on the text of Augustine, surprisingly, he does not interpret it in a manner that would remove the ‘this’ and the ‘that’ from ‘this good’ or ‘that good’ to arrive at a most common concept that would be predicable of all.
