About this item

Medieval Philosophy: A Multicultural Reader comprises a comparative, multicultural reading of the four main traditions of the medieval period including extensive sections on Jewish, Islamic, Latin and Greco-Roman traditions. The book also includes an initial 'predecessors' section which explains to students how to bridge the intellectual gap between Aristotle to Augustine - a span of nearly 800 years. It presents excerpts from Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus and Proclus from whom all four traditions have drawn. These contextualizing readings provide a firm basis from which to explore medieval thought.

Representative readings from each of the four great traditions are presented chronologically in four different tracks, along with engaging and accessible introductions to:

- the traditions themselves- the periods within each tradition- individual thinkers

An appendix provides lists of readings under several problem headings, to assist those who prefer to read and teach medieval philosophy topically rather than chronologically.

This is a culturally inclusive title which seeks to provide students with a rich, varied and comprehensive insight into the entirety of the medieval philosophical tradition.
