According to contemporary sources, Alberic of Paris was one of the most important logicians of the twelfth centuryHe was a fierce opponent of Peter Abelard and his nominalist followers, and famously proved that the logic of his rival was inconsistent. Yet we know relatively little about his own logical and philosophical views and how they were developed by his followers, the Albricani. Reconstructing these views is the focus of a current research project (Exploring Twelfth-Century Philosophy: Alberic of Paris and his School) at the University of Copenhagen. At this conference, we will discuss Alberic and other thinkers in his twelfth-century context.
