John Mair (c.1467-1550), major Scottish philosopher, logician and theologian of the Pre-Reformation period, wrote a brief dialogue on the task of the theologian. The two protagonists in the dialogue were young Scots, David Cranston and Gavin Douglas, with Douglas representing renaisssance humanism and Cranston resisting this stance. Mair shows himself a man of the old order but well-informed about and not entirely hostile to the new.
