It is not in the power of the intellect to restrain its assent to the truths which it apprehends.. .. the will can command the intellect to assent to propositions which are seen to be false. .. the will can co-operate mediately, as an efficient cause, by moving the intellect to attend to this or that intelligible object, to consider this or that argument.�� �(qtd. in 2,� 538, 540) While Scotus thought that� God could dispense with natural law under certain circumstances, he agreed with Aquinas in that there are acts which are intrinsically evil and which are forbidden because they are evil, and not evil because they are forbidden.� For Ockham, however, God is under no obligation, and the divine will / choice is the ultimate norm of morality, not divine essence.� Under this view, God could cause a man to do something which would be considered evil if the man were responsible for it, but since God wills it to be done, then the act is considered right.� If God caused someone to even hate God himself, then Ockham says that �neither would that man sin nor would God; for God is not under any obligation, while the man is not obliged, because the act would not be in his own power.�(qtd. in 3, 104)� This example was given by Ockham to emphasize God�s divine omnipotence and liberty.
