William of Ockham Biography
From the Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Excerpt: William of Ockham, the Franciscan school man, nominalist, and " doctor invincibilis ," was born at Ockham in 1280 and died in Munich on April 10, 1349. Of his early life, little is known. From the scarce data, it may be concluded that he entered the Franciscan order at an early age. He received his bachelor's degree at Oxford, and his master's at Paris, where he taught from a date between 1315 and 1320. The tradition that he was a pupil of Duns Scotus is probably correct. There is no evidence that he returned to England and taught at Oxford. In any case, it is with Paris that his principal teaching activity is connected. His doctrines had taken such hold there by 1339 that the philosophical faculty felt obliged to issue a warning against them.

- Nominalism rejects the view that there are universals (essences) in things; it emphasizes the experienced world of contingent beings. - The name used for a thing does not capture the essence of the thing, but is simply a conventional sign used to refer to the thing. - Logic seeks to organize and clarify human thought. - Intuitive cognition is a certain grasp by sense and judgment of any particular being, while abstractive cognition based on intuitive cognition organizes many similar things under universal terms (names). - Ockham's razor is the principle of economy in theorizing; it calls for the least number of assumptions in the construction of an explanation. - God is known by faith in his revelation, not by reason examining his creation. - Creation and salvation are the manifestations of the divine will that call each person to a covenant partnership.

SITEINDEX Press Release Friday October 23, 1998: InteLex Corporation is pleased to announce the publication of The Work of Ninety Days , translated by John Kilcullen and John Scott. Ockham's Work of Ninety Days , his first major work in a twenty-year campaign against Pope John XXII, is a thorough discussion of the place of voluntary poverty in religious life. It includes a discussion of the place of property in civil life and its relation to natural rights and human law. On property John XXII's views are like Locke's, Ockham's like Hume's; their views were known to Grotius. Appended to the text are two essays by John Kilcullen, "Natural Law and Will," and "The Origin of Property: Ockham, Grotius, Pufendorf, and some others." The text contains a lengthy introduction by Prof. Kilcullen.
John Kilcullen is a graduate in Philosophy of the University of Toronto and of the Australian National University, and is currently Associate Professor of Politics in Macquarie University. His publications include: Sincerity and Truth: Essays on Arnauld, Bayle and Toleration

William of Ockham A logician and proponent of nominalism, William of Ockham originated Ockham's razor, a philosophical paring tool that prefers the simplest theory that will explain the observable data. Born c. in Surrey, William was a Franciscan who taught at Oxford until the chancellor John Lutterell accused him of teaching suspect doctrine. John XXII appointed a commission which found 51 propositions questionable but which did not condemn the lecturer. William revised these, and while he was at Oxford and Avignon, he wrote commentary on the Organon of Aristotle and the Sentences of Peter Lombard. William accepted the teachings of the Spiritual Franciscans, who believe that Christ and his Apostles held all property in common and, therefore, poverty was essential to the church. John XXII did not accept these ideas, and William came to see him as a pseudo-pope. William, with two leaders of the Spiritual Franciscans, fled in to the protection of Louis of Bavaria, a papal enemy. John excommunicated William and the others. After John's death in

william of ockham knew that knowledge comes from actually experiencing contact with reality. What is known is the concrete particular, reality.
Our knowledge is grounded in an ' intuitive cognition ' of a particular aspect of reality We know through our senses and by making judgments on what we have directly experienced in the world or in ourselves
Intuitive cognition organizes many particulars in acts of induction which prompts the recognition of similarities among things
Knowledge comes from actually experiencing contact with reality . What is known is the concrete particular, reality
The human mind is in contact with actual reality
The word or symbol for a thing represents the thing but can never be the thing
A memory image stands for a real event that occurred in actual reality
Logic is the arrangement of these images in order to obtain clarity of thought and an organized body of truths
We must cut away at the elaborate hierarchy of ideas and concepts in the attempt to grasp the truth
Truth lies in a close correspondence between what one believes reality to be and what reality actual is.
Ockham's Razor states in the simplest of terms that the simplest, most

About William of Ockham Robert Wagner William of Ockham also called WILLIAM OCKHAM, Ockham also spelled OCCAM, byname VENERABILIS INCEPTOR (Latin: “Venerable Enterpriser”), or DOCTOR INVINCIBILIS (“Invincible Doctor”), (b. c. 1285, Ockham, Surrey?, Eng. — d. 1347/49, Munich, Bavaria [now in Germany]), Franciscan philosopher, theologian, and political writer, a late scholastic thinker regarded as the founder of a form of nominalism — the school of thought that denies that universal concepts such as “father” have any reality apart from the individual things signified by the universal or general term.
Early life Little is known of Ockham’s childhood. It seems that he was still a youngster when he entered the Franciscan order. At that time a central issue of concern in the order and a main topic of debate in the church was the interpretation of the rule of life composed by St. Francis of Assisi concerning the strictness of the poverty that should be practiced within the order. Ockham’s early schooling in a Franciscan convent concentrated on the study of logic; throughout his career, his interest in logic never waned, because he regarded the science of terms as fundamental and indispensable for practicing all the sciences of things, including God, the world, and ecclesiastical or civil institutions; in all his disputes logic was destined to serve as his chief weapon against adversaries.

(Internet Explorer only) (For Automatic Bookmark Use Control+D) Feature Article William of Ockham Cutting out the fat RATE THIS ARTICLE "Fanaticism consists in redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim." -George Santayana I have a vivid recollection of one of my professors whose specialty was formal logic, relating with relish how, in some academic dispute or other things had gotten rather ugly. I remember terms like "blood on the floor". To a young student, laboring under the illusion that in academia there was little room for raw emotion much less out-and-out warfare, this came as quite a shock. Were not these to be temples of logic and reasoned discourse? Now I learned that just as in more mainstream human activity, if you couldn't win your point by the strength of your argument there was always brute force. I am not suggesting physical violence of course, although even that may happen on occasion. The bludgeoning is more usually inflicted by mental techniques such as belittling an opponent or by the more subtle "straw man" tactic where instead of attacking an idea you attack the person offering it. I use this little personal anecdote to introduce one of my heroes, William of Ockham or as I like to call him William van Ockham. Ockham was born around the year 1285 in Surrey, England. That would make him a sort of successor to Roger Bacon who died in 1294. Although like Bacon, he was involved with the order of the Franciscans it is not known whether he was familliar with the other man's work.

William of Ockham, on the Difference between Intuitive and Abstractive Cognition William of Ockham (c.1285-c.1349) was an English philosopher, logician, and theologian. He was born in the village of Ockham, county of Surrey. He died in the city of Munich (in Bavaria). Ockham wrote extensively on many subjects, including logic, epistemology, the philosophy of language, metaphysics, ethics, and theology. His philosophical writings included the Summa Logicae (Summa of Logic, c.1328), the Expositio in libros Physicorum Aristotelis (Exposition of the Books of Physics of Aristotle, 1322-24), and the Tractatus de praedestinatione et de praescientia Dei et de futuris contingentibus (Treatise on Predestination and on God's Foreknowledge of Future Contingents, 1321-24). His theological works included: In Libros Sententiarum (Commentary on the Sentences of Peter Lombard, 1317-18), and the Quodlibeta Septem (Seven Quodlibets, 1322-25). His political writings included: Dialogus Inter Magistrum et Discipulum de potestate Papae et Imperatoris (Dialogue between Master and Disciples on the Power of Emperors and Popes, 1334-47), and his

Selected Ontological Problems. The Problem of Universals
The Nominalist Ontology of William of Ockham
INTRODUCTION "Like most philosophers in the Aristotelian tradition, Ockham distinguishes between propositions and the terms out of which they are composed. Central to Ockham's analysis of the concept of a term is his distinction between categorematic and syncategorematic terms. We can get at this dichotomy if we distinguish between expressions that do and expressions that do not yield a meaningful proposition when substituted for ` x ' in `This x -es' or `This is (a/an) x '. The former (including predicate-expressions, proper names, demonstratives, and pronouns) Ockham calls categorematic terms; the latter (including articles, particles, interjections, quantifiers, and truth-functional connectives) he calls syncategorematic terms. It is among categorematic terms that Ockham locates the distinction between singular and general, or employing Ockham's own terminology, the distinction between discrete and common terms. Very roughly, this is the distinction between categorematic terms that can and categorematic terms that cannot function as predicate in subject-predicate propositions, or that at least is the way a contemporary Ockhamist would express the dichotomy. Ockham himself construes the subject-predicate nexus more broadly to include identity-statements, existential propositions, and propositions incorporating either the universal or particular quantifier. Against this broad interpretation of subject-predicate discourse, Ockham tells us that while the discrete term is predicable of just one thing, the common term is predicable of many.
