Heynlin De Lapide, Johannes

Heynlin de Lapide, Johannes one of the last eminent representatives of scholasticism, was a native of Germany. He studied at Leipsic, Basle, and Paris, and in the latter place became a doctor of the Sorbonne. In 1473 he settled at Basle, and, as a decided realist, caused, first at Basle, afterwards at Tubingen, whither he moved in 1477, so violent a contest between realism and nominalism that he finally determined to retire altogether from public life, in 1487. He spent the remainder of his life in a Carthusian monastery in Basle, and died in 1496. Heynlin wrote a commentary on Aristotle while at Paris, but it was not published until many years later, by his pupil Amerbach. He also directed the editing of the works of St. Ambrose, which were published by Amerbach in 1492.
