Item Description...
This book offers the first English translation of the Quodlibetal Questions of William of Ockham (c. 1285-1347) -- reflections on a variety of topics in logic, ontology, natural philosophy, philosophical psychology, moral theory, and theology by one of the preeminent thinkers of the Middle Ages. It is based on the recent two-volume critical edition of Ockham's theological and philosophical works.

"Quodlibetal Questions is a fine introduction to Ockham's work". -- Theology Digest

"A welcome contribution to the contemporary interest in the thought, both philosophical and theological, of William of Ockham....The translation itself is excellent and reads easily. There is a complete bibliography of Ockham's works which have been translated into English, along with a selected bibliography of secondary sources in English. There is an index of names and a carefully worked out index of topics. What is of special help is a listing at the beginning of volume one of the different areas of philosophy and theology and where in the Quodlibeta Ockham has treated topics and problems proper to these areas". -- Harry R. Klocker, Manuscripta

"The collection fills a heretofore unmet need for fully representative selections from Ockham in English translation". -- Ansgar Santogrossi, The Review of Metaphysics

This book is a monster text! It is 702 pages and covers every imaginable question that could be asked. For example, "Is an angel in a place through his substance?" or "Does a spoken word lose its significance when a thing [it signifies] ceases to exist?" and many, many more (about 170 questions in all).

This is a paperback one-volume edition to the earlier two volume edition, which means this volume is substantially less expensive than the two volume set. Moreover, the topics covered in this volume are practically exhaustive - logic, ontology, natural philosophy, philosophical psychology, ethics, moral theory, theology, metaphysics, etc.

Added features to this already great text include a lengthy and exhaustive subject index, a short but good introduction, nice explanatory footnotes throughout the text, a short but good selective bibliography, and an index of names and works.

Fred Freddoso (Notre Dame) and the late Francis Kelley have translated this work in such a way that both the scholar of Ockham and the student of Ockham will benefit. Moreover, this is a great introductory work to Ockham for students (such as myself) interested in digging a little deeper into the thoughts and writings of one of the more prominent Medieval thinkers.

The work is laid out as such: a question is posed or asked, if there is something to be noted about the question then it is noted with a nice explanation, a reply to the question is given, and sometimes, depending on the question and the content, a reply to the main argument is given. If there are problems or issue which have arisen about a particular question Ockham is careful to cover these problems and issues. And, all along, footnotes are provided by the translators which help the reader understand the Latin usages (if that issue arises), the context of the question and response, cross references to other works or issues which might help the reader branch out into deeper research, and descriptions and explanations of terms, works, etc. So the book is quite helpful and friendly to all readers, which actually makes reading this text quite helpful. I highly recommend this work! Moreover, buy it soon because it has been my experience that books like these (the really good ones!) for some odd reason usually have a short shelf life!
