The detailed introduction guides the reader through the intricacies of the transmission of the text as well as its philosophical contents. -/- Wylton's Quaestio presents a strong and controversial defence of Averroes' interpretation of Aristotelian psychology. The church should not possess secular power or own property and should promote its teachings only through instruction and admonition.

He argued that God's perfection and goodness is equally manifest in both spheres. Boethius (c. 476–c. 526) wrote his influential The Consolation of Philosophy while in prison awaiting execution. In the book, philosophy is personified as a woman who shows how human freedom and moral responsibility are possible within God's providential governance of the universe , e.g. http://ballard73.com/?freebooks/history-of-european-morals-from-augustus-to-charlemagne-vol-ii.

This course meets on Thursdays from 4:00-6:30PM. An examination of the metaphysics and epistemology of three medieval Aristotelians: Thomas Aquinas, Duns Scotus, William Ockham.

The first comprehensive history of aesthetics in English by an influential idealist philosopher from the end of the 19th century. For a long time a standard survey of the subject, although less well known and hardly used in the 21st century. Includes substantial articles on many of the most prominent contributors to aesthetics from Antiquity to the 20th century , e.g. http://vprsanonymous.com/?freebooks/on-original-sin-and-a-disputation-with-the-jew-leo-concerning-the-advent-of-christ-the-son-of. God, as necessary existent, is one both in the sense of being unique and of being simple http://www.manonthemoon.es/?freebooks/robert-grosseteste-his-thought-and-its-impact-papers-in-mediaeval-studies. This was a challenge taken up by a number of fifteenth-, sixteenth-, and seventeenth-century thinkers, including Marsilio Ficino, Pico della Mirandola, and other Neoplatonists; Lorenzo Valla, Desiderius Erasmus, and other humanists; Rudolphus Agricola, Petrus Ramus, and other reformers of rhetoric and logic; Jacopo Zabarella, Giordano Bruno, and other Italian natural philosophers; and Francis Bacon, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, René Descartes, Isaac Newton, and other champions of the "party of nature" and a self-proclaimed "new philosophy."

The influence of Aristotle and other Greeks pervaded the thought of Muslim philosophers, such as Avicenna and Averroës, and the Spanish-born Jew, Moses Maimonides. In the work of scholastic philosophers, such as Abélard, Albertus Magnus, Saint Thomas Aquinas and William of Occam, philosophy became a branch of Christian theology , source: http://femtalent.cat/library/the-decameron-the-classic-translation-of-john-payne. William of Alnwick’s compilation of Scotus’ thought based largely but not exclusively on his Parisian teaching. He probably completed his Oxford studies in 1301. and the reliability of the texts varies considerably. Wadding’s Opera omnia does not contain quite all of Scotus’ works http://schoolbustobaja.com/?freebooks/basic-writings-of-saint-thomas-aquinas-volume-1. Often the pieces have an intended liturgical function, such as altar pieces or statuary.

Political power originates when families congregate into a city. It does not exist in aggregations of people without order or moral union, it exists when a set of people choose to unite as a community http://passthebatonevents.com/ebooks/forbidden-fruit-from-the-letters-of-abelard-and-heloise-great-loves. For example, the statement that �God is merciful� really means that the natural world as created by God displays merciful characteristics. It gives us nourishment and works in ways that make our lives pleasant. Similarly, the statement �God is angry� really means that the natural world as created by God is severe towards people when they act improperly. Perhaps the leading philosopher of the middle ages was Thomas Aquinas (1225�1274), who maintained that reason, unaided by faith, can give us knowledge of God�s existence and an understanding of morality as it is grounded in natural law , e.g. http://istarestudi.com/?books/duns-scotus-on-the-will-and-morality.

An Historical and Philosophical Introduction (Routledge, 2007), pp. 1-5, which is an introduction to the book that explains the conception of medieval philosophy and its four traditions that is also the guiding viewpoint in this unit. After that, either continue reading Marenbon or go to the somewhat less demanding Armand Maurer, Medieval Philosophy an Introduction (Toronto: PIMS, 19822). (See also below on the Marenbon and Maurer books.) There are a number of monographic treatments of medieval philosophy understood in a broad sense (i.e. not limited to philosophy in the medieval Latin west), I’ll mention just two: Armand Maurer, Medieval Philosophy an Introduction offers an accessible and well written overview, that is beginning to show its age and maintains its focus on the west while bringing in Jewish and Islamic philosophical traditions (not so much the Byzantine) http://femtalent.cat/library/karl-marx-and-the-future-of-the-human-the-raya-dunayevskaya-series-in-marxism-and-humanism.

These reactions to the novel trends in philosophy did not prevent the Averroists from treating philosophical questions apart from religious considerations. Theologians, for their part, were increasingly suspicious of the philosophers and less optimistic about the ultimate reconciliation of philosophy and theology , source: http://agiosioanniskalyvitis.gr/books/imagining-heaven-in-the-middle-ages-a-book-of-essays-garland-medieval-casebooks.
