La catégorie de quantité dans les sciences au XIVe siècle: L'exemple de Gautier Burley (2012)


In the 14th century, Walter Burley achieved fame at the Faculty of Arts by taking William of Ockham to issue for not distinguishing between quantity and substance. We propose to examine how this debate, which arose in the context of the question of the Eucharist, transformed the category of quantity, in the transition from Aristotelian logic to medieval physics. It became a scientific concept incorporated into central discussions such as continuity, the ontology of indivisibles, the nature of infinite, the quantification of primary matter.
