Best known for his theological works, the early fourteenth-century Carmelite Guido Terreni demonstrated considerable independence and originality in his philosophical views. A follower of Godfrey of Fontaines and Aquinas, his defense of Aristotelian positions sometimes took novel turns, and he departed from Aristotle in important respects, for example, on forms. He denied that universals actually exist, challenged Aquinas’ definition of natural law and the derivation of human law, and developed economic theories that may have influenced Buridan and Oresme.
