BoŽthius of Dacia

Redirected from BoŽthius de Dacia

BoŽthius of Dacia (died circa 1290) was a Swedish or Danish philosopher active at the University of Sorbonne[?] in France.

He was the most know proponent of Averroism, which is an interpretation of Aristoteles founded on AverroŽs. He wrote several books in latin, which have been collected in the six volumes of BoŽthii Daci opera, printed in Copenhagen.

When averroism was banned in 1270, BoŽthius returned to the Nordic countries and died in LinkŲping, Sweden.
