It then exhibits how Ockham’s theological disagreements together with his most outstanding predecessors are a logical outcome of underlying philosophical adjustments. in response to Marilyn McCord Adams, Ockham emerges as a Franciscan Aristotelian, even more philosophically and religiously conservative than often meant. Adams demanding situations the notions that Ockham’s nominalism and ontological savings result in subjectivism in metaphysics, his epistemology to skepticism, his thought of causality to Humean consistent conjunction or to occasionalism. Likewise, Adams rejects the inspiration that Ockham’s philosophical doctrines result in heretical perspectives in theology, or that his insistence on divine freedom results in arbitrariness and caprice in ethics. even though her fundamental concentration is on Ockham, McAdams compares and contrasts his positions with these of Aquinas, Scotus, Henry of Ghent, between others. William Ockham constitutes a superb initiation for philosophers into the issues and theoretical framework of the overdue 13th and early fourteenth centuries.
