This article addresses the doctrine of radical moisture in the natural philosophy of John Buridan († 1361 ca.). It particularly examines a question in Buridan’s commentary on Aristotle’s Parva naturalia (De morte et vita, q.5) focused on life’s maintenance and the natural death of the body. Buridan’s text works as a relevant example of the use of the concepts of bodily moistures in the fourteenth century. Moreover, it testifies for the influence of medical doctrines on Buridan’s natural philosophy.
