Studies in History of Philosophy Volumes 50A and 50B. A work presenting translations of vital texts in the debate between John Duns Scotus (1266-1308) and William of Ockham (1285-1347) on universals. Scotus and Ockham are viewed as two of the great philosophers of High Scholasticism. Scotus's unique account of universals and individuation earned him a large following and sparked brilliant counterarguments by Ockham and Thomist opponents. Even with flaws, his argument for the existence of God is perhaps one of the most complicated ever written.
