Description

The problem of undecideability is a preoccupation of Chaucer criticism. This study, while noting but not trying to account for every prior approach, proposes the positive alternative that in making his fictions, Chaucer gibes the Ockhamite nominalist approach to human understanding of the world.

Contents

A general prologue; the interpretation of dreams; the approximation of truth; gentilesse; the limitations of teachers; the tellable truth; paradigm lost - "Troilus and Criseyde".
