He became one of the most important figures in the transformation of medieval logic and semantics that took place in the early fourteenth century. Burley used new tools and techniques of logical and semantical analysis, yet in many cases he used them in defense of traditional views, such as a realist metaphysical theory of universals.” On the Purity of the Art of Logic showsboth these sides of Burleythe innovator and the conservativeas well as some of the ways in which his views corresponded or clashed with those of William of Ockham.
