He also argued against the reality of universals—entities like "whiteness" that exist beyond the whiteness of a particular piece of paper, snowdrift, and so on. x Ockham rejected the idea that Christian theology is an intellectual enterprise that aspires to the same standards as pagan philosophy Collectanea Augustiniana (American University Studies. Series 2). For Hegel all culture is a matter of "absolute spirit" coming to be manifest to itself, stage by stage.

Wolfson is occasionally unfair to the complexity of his subject by defining it solely in terms of origins. For example, he concludes each chapter of Philo with a tidy discussion of the “anticipations and influences” of Philo’s various notions, but in many such cases of anticipation and influence it is not the similarity to but the difference from Philo that is philosophically interesting.
