English Aristotelian cosmology implies the plurality of celestial motion for the process of generation and corruption in the sublunar world. In order to investigate the structure of the cosmos and the degree of dependence of the sublunar on the supralunar region, Medieval Latin commentators on Aristotle explored the consequences of cessation of celestial motion. In this paper we analyse the position of some philosophers of the fourteenth century’s Parisian School, namely Nicole Oresme, John Buridan and Albert of Saxony.
