More famous today but less famous in the thirteenth-century, Roger Bacon came close to agreeing with Rufus at the end of his teaching career at Paris. In most of his works, however, Bacon disagreed. And since both were influential teachers of Aristotle in the first half of the thirteenth-century, the comparison of their views presented here, with occasional comments on other authors, should provide an introduction to early thirteenth-century psychological theory. In Rufus and Bacon’s time, three ancient and patristic authorities were frequently invoked in the psychological literature of the period: Aristotle, Augustine, and John Damascene.

According to Marsh, not only is Rufus’ conversation worthy, but “his science is brilliant; his piety is warm; his opinions, sound. ”31 Here I do not mean to suggest that Bacon’s dislike of Rufus was irrational. Bacon may not have had much company among the wise, but he hardly exaggerated the extent of his disagreement with Rufus.
