|Title:||Adam of Bocfeld or Roger Bacon? New remarks on a commentary on the Book of Causes||Authors:||Calma, Dragos||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10129||Date:||2018||Online since:||2019-04-24T12:29:06Z||Abstract:||Scholars have examined a commentary on the Book of Causes attributed to Adam of Bocfeld for almost a century. Yet little progress has been made regarding its dating, authenticity, and doctrines. This paper tackles some of these issues arguing that the commentary (1) was most probably written between 1251 and 1263/1265, (2) has striking similarities with some works attributed to Roger Bacon, and (3) contains an interesting discussion of Averroes’ doctrine of the unity of the intellect. The article also indicates the influence of this commentary on fifteenth-century authors and offers a partial edition of its question 1.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Peeters Press||Journal:||Recherches de Théologie et Philosophie Médiévales||Volume:||85||Issue:||1||Start page:||71||End page:||108||Copyright (published version):||2018 Peeters||Keywords:||Book of Causes; Adam of Bocfeld; Roger Bacon; History of philosophy||DOI:||10.2143/RTPM.85.1.3284826||Language:||en
