Chapter Summary

A glimpse into Paul metaphysics shall be offered together with a short description of the main stylistic features of his Metaphysics commentary. This chapter provides a brief analysis of logical tool he utilizes in building up his system; the twin notions of identity and distinction, a "family" of concepts that he draws from Wyclif 's notions of formal distinction. It explores his solution of the question of composition of essence and being in creatures. The chapter also examines his theory of universals, concentrating on the problem of relationship between formal universals and individuals. It examines original aspects of Nicoletti's metaphysics, namely, his theory of individuation and his notion of truth and ontological link between singular substances, accidents, and complexly signifiables. The chapter briefs about the main features of Nicoletti's world.

Keywords: metaphysics; Nicoletti's world; Paul; Wyclif 's notions
