Chapter Summary

In this chapter, using the notebook of Servatius Fanckel, the author focuses on one such topic, which he thinks is of considerable historical importance for our understanding of the so-called Wegestreit, that is the debate be tween Nominalists and Realists, as it sheds light on the role of Aristotle within this dispute as well as on the late-medieval reception of Ockham. Before entering into an analysis of the debate, it is first necessary to have a closer look at the notebook of Servatius Fanckel and the genre of the disputatio vacantialis. Following this discussion the chapter turns to the philosophical and theological side of the debate, first by discussing Johannes Alens position and that of his Albertist and Thomist opponents and sketching his profile as a Nominalist, and second by working out the doctrinal antagonisms between Albertism, Thomism, and Nominalism in Cologne.

Keywords: Albertism; disputatio vacantialis; nominalism; philosophical treatises; student notebook of Dominican Servatius Fanckel; theological treatises; Thomism; Wegestreit
