William of Ware
- Jeffrey C. WittAffiliated withDepartment of Philosophy, Boston College
William of Ware was a Franciscan theologian who flourished in the 1290s and into the first years of the fourteenth century. He is remembered primarily as a teacher of John Duns Scotus, and many of his positions on the nature of theology, the subject of metaphysics, ontology, and the will share striking resemblances to the more precise and more complete views ultimately found in Scotus. Moreover, William is also often engaged with the work of Henry of Ghent making him a figure of great importance as a mediating bridge in the well-known intellectual rivalry between Henry and Scotus.
