If you have a question about this talk, please contact Prof. Christopher Martin.

Abaelard is best known as a philosopher for his theory of universals but there is disagreement over exactly what that ontology he is committed to. This seminar will examine the thesis that Abaelard is a trope-theorist who will allow that tropes may in some sense be transferred from one individual to another but that he combines this with a commitment to individual essences. Further details from http://www.phil.cam.ac.uk/news_events/medieval_philosophy.html. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
