Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Le volume embrasse probablement tout ce qu'aujourd'hui on peut savoir des Lettres et des circonstances dans lesquelles ont été écrtites.'
Revue des Sciences Philosophiques et Theologiques, 1995.
'Travail méritoire, utile pour les médiévistes qui témoigne que jadis -déjà- les gens ne s'inclinaient pas automatiquement devant une interdiction de Rome.'
E. Manning Bulletin Codicologique, 1995.
'De Rijk's critical edition and translation is both important and timely...This edition and English translation of Nicholas's philosophical works and related documents is an indispensable point of departure for any future studies on fourteenth-century philosophy in general and on the philosophy of Nicholas in particular.'
Ivan Boh, Speculum, 1996.
