  1. Adam Wood (2013). William of Ockham on Metaphysics: The Science of Being and God by Jenny E. Pelletier (Review). [REVIEW] Journal of the History of Philosophy 51 (4):679-680.
    “Ockham never wrote a commentary on Aristotle’s Metaphysics,” Jenny Pelletier tells us at the beginning of this monograph, “but the absence of such a commentary does not allow us to infer that he was uninterested in or skeptical of metaphysics” (1–2). Her central contention is that Ockham had a robust conception of metaphysics as a distinct branch of scientific knowledge concerning being and God. It is an argument worth making insofar as many scholars in recent years have held that Ockham (...)

  2. Adam Wood (2012). Incorporeal Nous and the Science of the Soul in Aristotle's De Anima. International Philosophical Quarterly 52 (2):169-182.

  4. Adam Wood (2009). Faith and Reason. Philosophy and Theology 21 (1/2):165-177.
    I compare two historical moments: Bishop Stephen Tempier’s 1277 condemnation of 219 “errors” in circulation at the University ofParis, and Pope Benedict XVI’s Regensburg Address. Both the condemnation and the address, I argue, were intended to defendparticular views of the relationship between faith and reason against forms of relativism and rationalism prevalent in their own day. Reflecting on the mixed success of Tempier’s condemnation’s in this enterprise can help to make clear some of the difficultiesinherent in Benedict’s.
