    1. Life
    Ockham led an unusually eventful life for a philosopher. As with so many medieval figures who were not prominent when they were born, we know next to nothing about the circumstances of Ockham's birth and early years, and have to estimate dates by extrapolating from known dates of events later in his life. Ockham's life may be divided into three main periods.
    1.1 England (c. 1287
    Ockham was born, probably in late 1287 or early 1288, in the village of Ockham (= Oak Hamlet) in Surrey, a little to the southwest of London. He probably learned basic Latin at a village school in Ockham or nearby, but this is not certain. Around 1310, when he was about 23, Ockham began his theological training. It is not certain where this training occurred. It could well have been at the London Convent, or it could have been at Oxford, where there was another Franciscan convent associated with the university. In any event, Ockham was at Oxford studying theology by at least the year 1318-19, and probably the previous year as well, when (in 1317) he began a required two-year cycle of lectures commenting on Peter Lombard's

William of Ockham - solution focused philosopher?
Many years before I ever heard about the solution-focused approach I was interested in skepticism (and I still am). That is when I learned about William of Ockham, famous for his Ockham's razor . Later I learned about the solution-focused approach and I found out Steve de Shazer and others have frequently mentioned how the simplicity of solution-focused change resembles Ockham's razor. William of Ockham was a fourteenth century English philosopher who objected against his colleagues who used ever more complex assumptions and theories to understand the world. Back then, it was not uncommon for people to think that whoever came up with the most complicated explanation of a phenomenon must be the cleverest and therefore be right. Ockham argued the opposite: he who came up with the simplest theory that covered the facts must be right. Every unnecessary assumption must be cut away like if you were using a razor. That is key to solution-focused change: keep things simple. What is useful is done, what is not necessary is left out. op 4:43 PM

WILLIAM OF OCKHAM -born between 1290 and 1300 (Thomas Aquinas: b. 1224, d. 1274). -entered Franciscan order (and was later assaulted by the pope for his defense of evangelical poverty.) -began studying theology at Oxford in 1310. -lectured on the bible 1315-1317; on Peter Lombard's Sentences -1319-1324: studied, wrote, and engaged in Scholastic disputations, one result of which was his philosophizing around the problem of universals. -died in Munich, of the Black Death, in 1349. Ockham knew Aristotle thoroughly (like Aquinas), but wanted to "correct" Aristotle wherever A's phil. limited in any way the freedom and power of God. To this end he attacked A's "realism" w.r.t. universals. Recall: -the theory of divine ideas looms large in Christian thought from Augustine to Aquinas. -Plato had spoken of eternal Forms or Ideas, distinct from God, that were the patterns or models of the created order, especially w.r.t. its intelligible structure -later Greek philosophers (e.g., Plotinus) located these Ideas in the divine mind. -then are these Ideas a "given" for God

William of Ockham's Logical Transformations
William of Ockham (also known as William of Occam) was born in 1285 in Surrey, England, and lived until sometime around 1349. Ockham (who entered the Franciscan order and studied and taught at the University of Oxford from 1309 to 1319) was known as Doctor Invincibilis (from the Latin, meaning "unconquerable doctor") and Venerabilis Inceptor (meaning "worthy initiator"). a Ockham was a philosopher and Scholastic theologian, and also won fame as a logician. During the course of his logical investigations, Ockham discovered the foundations for what were to become known as DeMorgan Transformations , which were described by Augustus DeMorgan some 500 years later. To celebrate Ockham's position in history, the OCCAM computer programming language was named in his honor. (OCCAM is the native programming language for the British-developed INMOS transputer.) a These notes are abstracted from the book Bebop BYTES Back

    William Grey launches an all-out attack on the paranormal armed with a couple of razors honed with the whetstone of scepticism. 'Philosophy' is a word taken from Greek, and literally means 'love of wisdom'. But what is wisdom? I suggest that it is the capacity to make the most appropriate choices, or at least avoid the most serious pitfalls, from among the bewildering alternatives which confront us in the course of our lives. This can be clarified with the help of an analogy. Imagine that you are lost in a maze. It would be of immense benefit to gain an overview of your predicament because that would help you to understand your position and thereby assist you to reach your destination. Wisdom is the capacity to articulate our situation constructively from a point of view which enables us to see consequences and identify irrelevancies more clearly, thereby empowering us to make better choices. A wise person is one who is able to provide such a perspective. Striving for wisdom is important because by widening our horizons we are able to see more clearly what the alternatives for living are. This sort of wisdom is practical wisdom; that is, it attempts to provide an answer to the problem, raised long ago by Socrates (469-399 BC) about how one should live (Plato

    POL167: Introduction to Political Theory
    William of Ockham, Eight Questions Dialogue : Reading Guide
    R.J. Kilcullen (The Readings book contains extracts.) In Eight Questions Ockham states and compares various answers to a set of questions someone active in politics had sent to him and to others (one other set of answers survives). It is one of Ockham's 'recitative' works, in which he does not indicate which of the various opinions is his. Read iii.1 (i.e. question 3, ch. 1) This states several theories which imply an affirmative answer to the question. Theory (a), 'fullness of power': This is the theory criticised in Short Discourse , book ii. Theory (b): There ought to be one world ruler (though without 'fullness of power' in the objectionable sense), who should be the pope. The argument for this theory ('It is also proved by reason...') is constructed from materials taken from Marsilius of Padua (p. 80, in Readings ), but (b) is not Marsilius' theory: he does not hold that the pope should be the supreme ruler. Perhaps Ockham thought that Christians would have to hold that any ruler as strong as the one Marsilius advocated would have to be the head of the Church. Read iii.2
