Item description for Ockham's Theory of Terms (Pt. 1) by William of Ockham & Michael J. Loux...

William of Ockham, the most prestigious philosopher of the fourteenth century, was a late Scholastic thinker who is regarded as the founder of Nominalism - the school of thought that denies that universals have any reality apart from the individual things signified by the universal or general term. Ockham's Summa Logicae was intended as a basic text in philosophy, but its originality and scope encompass his whole system of philosophy. Yet the paucity of English translations and the structural complexity of the Latin have made the Summa, until now, almost completely inaccessible.

Here Michael Loux has translated the first part of the Summa, one of the most original and influential medieval texts in logic.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ockham's Theory of Terms (Pt. 1)?

Well sorry P.V. Spade, I like it!  Feb 25, 2006
P.V. Spade reviewed this translation back in the late seventies after its was first published and validates the two introductory essays as some of the best work he has read on the subject. Coming from his expertise this is big praise. However he denotes that Loux's intention for a readable translation leaves many technical errors and translational fudges in the work itself. My advice is to place these interdisperced errors in the back of your mind as you study the work. If you have read the secondary liturature on Ockham's logic this translation will be invaluable, especially if hacking through the original latin isn't a possibility. Some of the most modern scholarship concerning this text can be found in the Cambridge Companion to Ockham, epecially the first 5 chapters. A refresher on Aristotle's Categories will also establish precedent.
