Marsilius of Inghen belonged with William of Ockham and John Buridan to those thinkers who substantially shaped late-medieval Nominalism. He taught in Paris and Heidelberg and left behind a significant number of writings that were used as set texts at many universities in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, especially in the German Empire. Characteristic was his rejection of real universals outside the human mind (Realism) and his distinction between the approaches of natural reason and faith. He was also known for his dismissal of the notion of suppositio simplex, his defense of an eleventh category, and his criticism of the Aristotelian theory of motion. His thought was appreciated by humanists and Spanish scholastics.
