William of Ockham. One of the three great scholastic philosopher-theologians (the other two being St Thomas and John Duns Scotus). Never quite achieved the recognition given to the other two. Famous for his 'razor', though it did not originate with him, and famous for his Nominalism, of which more later.
What am I doing here? I shall be writing biographies of the medieval Catholic philosophers, as well as contributing to the Philosophy section (which I see needs a bit of work).
To begin with:
- Aristotelian logic
- Ontological argument
I am another refugee from Wikipedia. Why did I leave? Best to email me on that!
If anyone can help me upload some favourite images from the packing case, leave a message on my talk page. I haven't worked out how to use those fancy labels that categorise me, but if I did it would be on the following lines:
- This user has no particular views about the theory of evolution, and has no expertise on the subject whatever
- This user is proud to be English
- This user likes old books
- This user is a member of the Church of England (and therefore has no particular beliefs)
