In Grosseteste we have on our hands a figure, not only of great complexity
in himself, but of even greater complexity in the kind of evidence which
we are required to use. It is worth remembering that, despite all efforts
of the last half century, quite half of his works are still unpublished.
When we turn to Grosseteste, we find a situation which is as different
from this as it could well be. He presents a quite unique combination of
problems. The range of subjects he studied, the way in which he studied them,
and the order in which he studied them, seem to be - to a much greater extent
than any of the great scholastic thinkers - to be an expression, not of any
normal programme of university studies, but of his personality and of the
obscure and varied background and circumstances of his life. His thoughts
on the subjects which he chose to elaborate are markedly his own. In a word
uniqueness of circumstances and personality.
