The English Franciscan philosopher and theologian, Adam of Wodeham (d. 1358), was a disciple and friend of William of Ockham; he was also a student of Walther Chatton. Nevertheless, he was an independent thinker who did not hesitate to criticize his former teachers - Ockham sporadically and benevolently, Chatton, frequently and aggressively. Since W odeham developed his own doctrinal position by a thorough critical examination of current opinions, the first part of this introducÂ tion briefly outlines the positions of the chief figures in the English controversy over indivisibles. The second part of the introduction preÂ sents a summary of Wodeham's views in the Tractatus de indivisibilibus, lists the contents of the treatise, and considers the question of its date and its chronological position in the context of Wodeham's other works. In the third part, the editorial procedures used here are set forth. 1. THE INDIVISIBILIST CONTROVERSY In the literature of the 13th and 14th centuries, the term 'indivisible' refers to a simple, un extended entity. Consequently, these indivisibles are not physical atoms but either mathematical points, temporal instants or indivisibles of motion, usually called mutata esse. I THOMAS BRADWARDINE (d. 1349), roughly contemporary with Wodeham, classified the positions it was possible to take regarding indivisibles. He described his own view as the common view, that of "Aristotle, A verroes, and most of the moderns," according to which a "continuum was not composed of atoms (athomis) but of parts divisible without end.

As a psychologist, and after years of study, I wanted to create books from the material I have gathered over the years to make available to the public. My books, beginning with my first book - STRESS, We Can Master It- are laid out in a way that everyone can understand. Psychological theories, definitions, analysis can be rather daunting for those who are not involved in this particular field. Knowing this, I tried to simplify, to a point, as best I could this material to make it readable and comprehensible to the everyday person. I am sure whoever would read this book will gain a little something that can help them in some way. You will read in this third book in my series: What are Drugs and what is Addiction? Why People use Drugs Marijuana: The Myth and the Reality. Opiates (Heroin). Amphetamines/ Methamphetamines (Speed) Cocaine Hallucinogens (Ecstasy, LSD). An in Depth Analysis of Addiction Drugs and Personality Disorders I Drugs and Personality Disorders II Withdrawal- An Addict's Worst Nightmare Reading the book you will likely obtain a helpful insight in to drugs and addictions and discover things you did not know which could either help you or someone you know.
