<philosophical school> 1. in the middle ages, someone who maintained that there where no universals above and beyond particular individual things and words (marks on paper) in particular languages. realist
2. today, we tend to call someone a nominalist whose general account of the universe tries to get along without sanctioning things that are not realized completely in our experience. Goodman is often said to be a nominalist, and Quine may be said to have such tendencies (though Quine sanctions sets).
