L’hypothèse de la cessation des mouvements célestes au XIV e siècle : Nicole Oresme, Jean Buridan et Albert de Saxe

Vivarium 56 (1-2):83-125 (2018)

Aristotelian cosmology implies the plurality of celestial motion for the process of generation and corruption in the sublunar world. In order to investigate the structure of the cosmos and the degree of dependence of the sublunar on the supralunar region, medieval Latin commentators on Aristotle explored the consequences of the cessation of celestial motion. This paper analyses the position of some philosophers of the fourteenth-century Parisian school, namely Nicole Oresme, John Buridan and Albert of Saxony.
