Some Aspects of Henry of Ghent's Debt to Avicenna's Metaphysics

Modern Schoolman 85 (1):51 - 70 (2007)
The paper explores three areas in which Avicenna had an important influence on the metaphysics of Henry of Ghent: first, in developing an argument for the existence of God in metaphysics rather than in physics; secondly, in his intentional distinction between essence and existence; and thirdly, in his arguments not merely that there is only one God, but that it is impossible for there to be many gods, his arguments which Henry clearly took from books one and eight of Avicenna’s ’Metaphysics’
