16-17 May 2015, Wyclif and the Realist Tradition in 14th Century Logic, St Andrews, Scotland

Date: 16-17 May 2015
Location: St Andrews, Scotland
Deadline: 12 January 2015

Historians of logic have known for decades that the 14th century was a tremendously productive period in the Latin West. As far as the relationship between logic and metaphysics is concerned, however, research has tended to focus on the nominalist tradition associated with Ockham and Buridan. The aim of this workshop is to redress the balance a little by focussing instead on the realist tradition that spans the 14th century. We have singled out for special mention the influential figure of John Wyclif, whose Logic is currently being re-edited here at St Andrews, but we welcome contributions involving other figures from Walter Burley to Paul of Venice.
