Chapter Summary

The events in the Arts Faculty at Paris in the years 1339-1340 have long been a focal point for discussing the spread of William of Ockham's thought on the Continent. This statute, enacted by the Faculty of Arts on December 29, 1340, is disciplinary in nature and is concerned with styles of argumentation and the analysis of propositions, not with particular philosophical positions. Its focus is the loss of intellectual rigor resulting, or likely to result, from misapplications or ignorance of the rules of logical analysis. The internal evidence consists in the supposed parallels between Ockham's views and the practices censured in the statute. The external evidence comprises several statements that seemingly identify this document as a censure of Ockhamist errors. In 1339-1341, the English Nation at Paris had no English masters and probably no English students.
