11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By D. Larson on August 18, 2006
Format: Paperback
The argument contained in this treatise is incredibly difficult to follow and grasp. As a result, this is a difficult text to approach without either a respectible background in medieval (particularily thirteenth and fourteenth century) scholastic thought, or an expert to guide you through.

That said, the text is important if one wants to understand the thought of the fourteenth century. Ockham directly engages Scotus' theory of the simultaneous capacity for opposites as well as touching upon certain of Aquinas' doctrines relating to contingency and related Christian doctrines. Further, the translators have included texts related to the themes of this work from some of Ockham's other works.

In short, this is a good text to add to a collection of medieval philosophy and theology, but not likely to be found engaging to the casual medievalist.
