Ockham's attitude to the contrast between ordinary and technical discourse was the polar opposite of Anselm's attitude at the opening of the period. For Anselm, accounts of meaning could and did call for the use of, or have as consequences, technical assertions that were either nonsense from the point of view of ordinary usage, or at least involved radical departures therefrom—and his successors were similarly venturesome http://vprsanonymous.com/?freebooks/the-letters-of-saint-anselm-of-canterbury-cistercian-studies-series.

Both kinds of knowledge, according to Thomas, are consistent and compatible. He is convinced metaphysics is the most important aspect of philosophy , source: http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/the-notory-art-of-shorthand-ars-notoria-notarie-a-curious-chapter-in-the-history-of-writing-in. Thomas Aquinas, Godfrey of Fontaines, Henry of Ghent, Giles of Rome, and Duns Scotus.

Pythagoras considered a charlatan for claiming the doctrine of reincarnation, a half-naked Socrates haranguing people in the street with provocative and unanswerable questions, Aristotle tutoring great generals: these are examples of how Greek thinkers dared to question traditional conventions and to challenge the prejudices of their age, sometimes putting their own lives at stake ref.: http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/duns-scotus-vol-i-the-place-of-duns-scotus-in-medieval-thought.

Clearly, Scotus’s theological starting point made the conjunction of what humans believe with what they know every bit as difficult as it had been in Siger of Brabant’s secularistic “philosophism.” From both positions there was only one step to the doctrine of a “double truth”—a step that in fact was taken in the 14th century by the nominalist William of Ockham, to whom singular facts alone were “real” and their coherence was not , cited: http://thebarefootkitchen.com.s12128.gridserver.com/books/oxford-studies-in-medieval-philosophy-volume-3.

Many Jews in the Middle Ages believed the philosophical approach to be dangerous to faith. Once human reasoning is given its head, they argued, it can easily lead to a surrender of religious faith in those areas where faith seems to be unsupported by reason ref.: http://fgnuernberg.de/freebooks/henry-of-ghents-summa-the-questions-on-gods-existence-and-essence-aricles-21-24-dallas.

Jean Piaget (1896-1980) identified three biological processes, assimilation, accommodation and equilibration which helped identify how children interpret stimulus to make it understandable, how their understanding changes in reaction to the new stimulus and how they recognise the shortcoming of their understanding and adapt their mental structure to it http://nickel-titanium.com/lib/mediaeval-philosophy-illustrated-from-the-system-of-thomas-aquinas. This reversal of attitude, symptomatic of the breakdown of communication in terms of semiartificial language, did not, of course, immediately prevail, it was combated at great length, for instance, by John Wyclyf (c. 1320–1384).
