Chapter Summary

The one manuscript available of these Questiones libri Porphirii has the text ascribed to Thomas Manlevelt. A line of text at the top of the first folio, supposedly put there by the end of the fourteenth century, states that these questiones were compiled by the able doctor Thomas Manlevelt the Englishman: 'Hee questiones fuerunt compilate per Thom. Manlevel Anglicum doctorem solempnem'. The text with which Andrews is concerned, is a commentary (questiones) on Aristotle's Categories, also ascribed to Thomas Manlevelt. Andrews explains how Ockham had applied his reductive principle to Aristotle's ten categories, on the occasion of writing like Manlevel a commentary on the Categories of Aristotle. The interesting thing is what Andrews tells us about Manlevelt's way of finishing of this Ockhamist enterprise. This radical reformulation of nature, Andrews says, is otherwise completely unknown in the Middle Ages.
