Chapter Summary

There were several sizeable collections of questions on the Metaphysics produced at the University of Paris between ca. 1270 and ca. 1300. This chapter deals with five Parisian Sets, viz.; Anonymus Lipsiensis (I-VII), Siger of Brabant (on Books II-VII), Anonymus Zimmermanni (I-IX), Peter of Auvergne (I-IX, XII), and Radulphus Brito (I-X). Out of the great number of topics dealt with in these commentaries, the author has selected a few which he considers to be of particular interest at the present junction in research, and the treatment of which by the several authors sheds light both on the general situation for the artists at the time and on the particular philosophical physiognomy of each of them. Of the five authors, the two anonymi seem to have had little impact on other commentators whereas Siger certainly influenced Anonymus Zimmermanni, Peter, and Radulphus.
