Reviews
Review Quotes
"...This volume represents a major contribution to recent literature on early fourteenth century philosophy and theology, particularly as produced in the very active intellectual climate of Paris at that time. One can easily argue that the first three decades of the fourteenth century at Paris, with the contributions of Duns Scotus, Gerard of Bologna, Hervaeus Natalis, Durand of St. Pourçain, Thomas Wylton, Walter Burley, Peter Auriol, and a host of others mark one of the richest periods in scholastic thought, comparable to the achievements of the second half of the thirteenth century. Not only do the chapters in this volume offer fresh insights into the thought of these individuals, but the topics chosen are among the most discussed and controversial of the period, such as epistemology, intuitive and abstractive cognition, first and second intentions, the intension and remission of forms, Scotus' formal distinction, the scientific status of theology, fruition and enjoyment, the ontological status of relation, the problem of universals, and the meaning of propositions. Anyone interested in Parisian scholastic thought of the generation between Henry of Ghent and Francis of Marchia needs to be aware of the essays contained here..."William J. Courtenay, University of Wisconsin-Madison in H-France Review Vol. 10 (December 2010), No. 224

All those interested in intellectual history, medieval history, medieval philosophy and theology.
Main Description
Focusing on Meister Eckhart, John Duns Scotus, Hervaeus Natalis, Durandus of St.-PourAain, Walter Burley and Petrus Aureoli, this volume investigates the nature of philosophical and theological issues and arguments at the University of Paris in the early fourteenth century.
Main Description
This collection of essays, papers originally delivered at conferences in Bonn and Boston, show in a detailed way the tone and nature of philosophical and theological issues and arguments at the University of Paris in the early fourteenth century. They touch on a large number of authors and a broad spectrum of subjects and present these discussions with regard to the intellectual framework set by the earlier Parisian generation of Thomas Aquinas, Henry of Ghent and Godfrey of Fontaine. It becomes evident that the principal contributors to the new intellectual energy in early fourteenth-century discussions at Paris are Meister Eckhart, John Duns Scotus, Hervaeus Natalis, Durandus of St.-Pourain, Walter Burley and Petrus Aureoli.
