Marsilius of Padua on Reason - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 182
Reason/Marsilius/MarsiliusVsDante/Höffe: Unlike Dante, Marsilius is sceptical about a global order of rule. Of course, he does not deal with the legal and political arguments of the monarchy, but rather cites the epistemological reason that reason is not capable of general knowledge.
HöffeVsMarsilius: The author does not see that this reason can also be directed against Marsilius, namely that it can undermine the epistemological character of his plea for peace. But this alternative can hardly be denied: Either reason is able to recognize universally valid arguments for the necessity of a peace order among human beings, in which case a worldwide rule cannot be doubted for epistemological reasons alone. Or one is convinced of the epistemological scepticism, then Marsilius' peace order cannot be conclusively justified either.
