Is this a valid criticism of Blessed John Duns Scotus?
If Scotus says that beatitude can only be accomplished by the hypostatic union, then he deprives the angels of beatitude because Christ did not assume their natures. Yet the blessed angels (e.g. Michael and Gabriel) do enjoy beatitude. Therefore, beatitude does not depend on the hypostatic union. Moreover, Adam and Eve could have been glorified without the incarnation of Christ.[Calling Lee Faber! Calling Lee Faber!]
Does Scotus make the connection between the incarnation and human beatitude necessary or fitting? I'm guessing the latter, but I need some help on this.
