Ockham's Summa Logicae

Some of Ockham's master work in parallel Latin-English. The translations are rough and I haven't had too much time to check them. They are here to provide a searchable reference for Ockham's work, and to provide a sense of what he is on about. There are proper translations by Michael Loux (Book I), Alfred Freddoso (Book II), and John Longeway (Book III part 2). The other parts haven't been translated, as far as I know.
