Morta(I)Gne, Walter of

Morta(i)gne, Walter Of a noted scholastic of the 12th century, who embraced the realistic views in: philosophy, flourished as bishop of Laon, and died in 1174. He is best known as a logician, and is mentioned by John of Salisbury as the chief representative of the doctrine that "the same objects, according to the different condition (status) in which they are considered — i.e., according as our attention is desired to their differences or to their likeness, to the indifferences or the consimile in them — were either individuals, or species, or genera" (Metalog. 2:17). This doctrine is spoken of by the same author as no longer maintained by any one in his time. See Ueberweg, Hist. Philos. 1:387, 398.
