Abstract

This dissertation examines a key concept in metaphysics: universals – an important topic in Aristotle's metaphysics. This dissertation discusses the concept based on the works of Albert the Great (13th century), one of the first medieval interpreters of Aristotle's work and of his Arabian commentators, combined with the traditional neo-Platonic philosophy. He greatly influenced his contemporaries and later philosophers/theologians, such as Thomas Aquinas.

The concept of universals relates primarily to the indivisible nature of something that exists. These things can be measured and counted. Albert relates this concept to the unity of God.
