William of Ockham (also Occam or any of several other spellings) (c. 1285 – 1347) was an English Franciscan friar and scholastic philosopher , from Ockham, a small village in Surrey, near East Horsley. He is best known for his contributions to nominalism and his principle of parsimony known as " Ockham's razor ." Though the concept of parsimony in reasoning was not necessarily invented by William of Ockham himself, his frequent and decisive use of the razor attributed this principle to him. He utilized the razor to arrive at the most essential pluralities and variables of an argument, which he thought to be reason, experience and some infallible authority (according to his faith and scripture). While the use of Ockham's Razor in the later development of philosophy has been decontextualized out of its original theological context, the strength of William of Ockham's philosophy and logic can be attributed to the clarity with which he utilizes the razor to ground his reasoning in his faith.

William of Ockham
William of Ockham (ca. ) was a Franciscan friar and philosopher , from Ockham (near Ripley, Surrey), England. William devoted to a life to extreme poverty and minimalism. A pioneer of nominalism , some consider him the father of modern epistemology and modern philosophy in general, because of his strongly argued position that only individuals exist, rather than supra-individual universals, essences, or forms, and that universals are the products of abstraction from individuals by the human mind and have no extra-mental existence. Ockham is also considered one of the greatest logicians of all time. Dave Beckett of the University of Kent at Canterbury writes:
"The medieval rule of parsimony, or principle of economy, frequently used by Ockham came to be known as Ockham's razor
Summoned to Avignon in by Pope John XXII on accusation of heresy, William spent four years there in effect under house arrest while his teaching and writing were being investigated. During this period, at the request of Brother Michael of Cesena , head of the Franciscan order, Ockham investigated the controversy between the Franciscans and the Papacy on the doctrine of apostolic poverty, which was central to Franciscan doctrine but anathema to the Pope. Ockham concluded that Pope John XXII was a heretic, a position that he later put forth in writing. Before a conclusion was reached about the heresy or orthodoxy of William's philosophy, he fled Avignon on

  • 1. Life
    1. Life
    Ockham led an unusually eventful life for a philosopher. As with so many medieval figures who were not prominent when they were born, we know next to nothing about the circumstances of Ockham's birth and early years, and have to estimate dates by extrapolating from known dates of events later in his life. Ockham's life may be divided into three main periods.
    1.1 England (c. 1287
    Ockham was born, probably in late 1287 or early 1288, in the village of Ockham (= Oak Hamlet) in Surrey, a little to the southwest of London. He probably learned basic Latin at a village school in Ockham or nearby, but this is not certain. Around 1310, when he was about 23, Ockham began his theological training. It is not certain where this training occurred. It could well have been at the London Convent, or it could have been at Oxford, where there was another Franciscan convent associated with the university. In any event, Ockham was at Oxford studying theology by at least the year 1318-19, and probably the previous year as well, when (in 1317) he began a required two-year cycle of lectures commenting on Peter Lombard's Sentences

William of Ockham
Fourteenth-century Scholastic philosopher and controversial writer, born at or near the village of Ockham in Surrey, England , about 1280; died probably at Munich , about 1349. He is said to have studied at Merton College, Oxford , and to have had John Duns Scotus for teacher. At an early age he entered the Order of St. Francis . Towards 1310 he went to Paris , where he may have had Scotus once more for a teacher. About 1320 he became a teacher (magister) at the University of Paris . During this portion of his career he composed his works on Aristotelean physics and on logic . In 1323 he resigned his chair at the university in order to devote himself to ecclesiastical politics. In the controversies which were waged at that time between the advocates of the papacy and those who supported the claims of the civil power , he threw his lot with the imperial party, and contributed to the polemical literature pontifical Court at Avignon in 1328, but managed to escape and join John of Jandun and Marsilius of Padua , who had taken refuge at the Court of Louis of Bavaria . It was to Louis that he made the boastful offer , "Tu me defendas gladio ; ego te defendam calamo In his controversial writings William of Ockham appears as the advocate of secular absolutism.
