Hervaeus Natalis was a fourteenth century Dominican philosopher and theologian. Both before and after he became Master General of his Order, he took part in different political as well as theological controversies, in the course of which he defended the doctrine of Thomas Aquinas. Historians, however, have questioned his Thomistic orthodoxy, inasmuch as he departed from Aquinas on important doctrines such as the distinction of essence and existence in creatures, individuation, truth, and relation. He was the first medieval philosopher to introduce and discuss the notion of intentionality, which had important ramifications both within his own century and in centuries to come.
