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
