What is the problem of Siger of Brabant being in paradise and what are some solutions to this problem?

I am in a hard philosophy class at university. I am not an expert philosopher and am not familiar with the terms and or different types of philosophy. If somebody could help me understand this question I would be eternally grateful. I am supposed to write a paper on it, and I can't even begin to understand it.

@berslem,
Also if anyone wants to send messages to me in my inbox, I would love to chat back and forth about it! Appreciate anyone that is willing to throw around ideas and figure this one out with me.

Eternally grateful eh? Would you sign your soul away for that info?

@Krumple,
It would depend who I was selling it to.

@Krumple,
In that case, yes. I am ready for the information.

@berslem,
Considering 'paradise' and 'hell' as states of mind, rather than physical locations (as designed) - It is only a creative interpretation of conscious extremities and limitations.

Philosophy is opinion - Nothing else.

Clearly, the main problem was that Siger of Brabant was a full-fledged
Averroist. Such Averroist tenets as monopsychism were incompatible with
Catholic teachings.

A possible solution is that Siger advocated "double truth". There is a "hard
truth" obtained from philosophy and science one hand and a "religious truth"
that is obtained from religion on the other.
