There is clear disagreement between Thomas Aquinas, John Duns Scotus, and William of Ockham over the way in which habits and acts are specified. This disagreement can perhaps most clearly be seen in the different ways in which they describe the virtue of hope’s object. Thomas himself gives accounts that diverge at least verbally. These attempts to describe hope’s object indicate the difficulty of describing exactly what a moral object is.
