Comments on Daniel Novotny’s Essay (2017) Izquierdo on Universals

Daniel Novotny is a Professor at the University of South Bohemia. He published Ens Rationis: From Suarez to Caramuel, which I commented on. His work succinctly summarizes the propositions of Baroque scholastics, presenting them in bullet-point style.

Izquierdo’s points fit into these models in such a way that new - postmodern - questions are raised about the nature of universals.
