    Demonstration and Scientific Knowledge in William of Ockham: A Translation of Summa Logicae Iii-Ii: De Syllogismo Demonstrativo, and Selections From the Prologue to the Ordinatio.John Lee Longeway - 2007 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    This book makes available for the first time an English translation of William of Ockham's work on Aristotle's _Posterior Analytics_, which contains his theory of scientific demonstration and philosophy of science. John Lee Longeway also includes an extensive commentary and a detailed history of the intellectual background to Ockham's work. He puts Ockham into context by providing a scholarly account of the reception and study of the _Posterior Analytics_ in the Latin Middle Ages, with a detailed discussion of Robert Grosseteste, (...)

  2. The Rationality of Escapism and Self-Deception.John L. Longeway - 1990 - Behavior and Philosophy 18 (2):1 - 20.
    Escapism is defined as the attempt to avoid awareness of aversive beliefs. Strategies, and a few examples, of escapism are discussed. It is argued that self-deception is one species of escapism and that entrenched escapism, escapism pursued with the intention of permanently avoiding any awareness of one's belief, no matter what happens, is theoretically irrational, except in the special case where it compensates for irrationality elsewhere, by guarding one from the formation of further irrational beliefs of more serious import than (...)

    Nicholas of Cusa and Man’s Knowledge of God.John L. Longeway - 1987 - Philosophy Research Archives 13:289-313.
    I argue that Nicholas of Cusa agrees with Thomas Aquinas on the metaphysics of analogy in God, but differs on epistemology, taking a Platonic position against Aquinas’ Aristotelianism. As a result Cusa has to rethink Thomas’ solution to the problem of discourse about God. In De docta ignorantia he uses the mathematics of the infinite as a clue to the relations between a thing and its Measure and this allows him, he thinks, to adapt Aquinas’ approach to the problem of (...)
