Cambridge History of Later Medieval Philosophy by Norman Kretzmann

Book Description

This 1982 book is a history of the great age of scholastism from Abelard to the rejection of Aristotelianism in the Renaissance, combining the highest standards of medieval scholarship with a respect for the interests and insights of contemporary philosophers, particularly those working in the analytic tradition. The volume follows on chronologically from The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy, though it does not continue the histories of Greek and Islamic philosophy but concentrates on the Latin Christian West. Unlike other histories of medieval philosophy that divide the subject matter by individual thinkers, it emphasises the parts of more historical and theological interest. This volume is organised by those topics in which recent philosophy has made the greatest progress.

Ammonius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9 with Boethius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9 by Norman Kretzmann Ammonius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9 with Boethius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9, Paperback (April 2014)

Chapter 9 of Aristotle's "On Interpretation" deals with determinism, and here the two influential commentaries of Ammonius and Boethius have been published together. It was once argued that Boethius was influenced by Ammonius, and this work aims to show that this was clearly not the case.

Sophismata of Richard Kilvington by Norman Kretzmann Sophismata of Richard Kilvington, Paperback (March 2011)

Originally published in 1990, this was the first ever translation or edition of obscure fourteenth-century philosopher Richard Kilvington's work.

Metaphysics of Creation by Norman Kretzmann Metaphysics of Creation, Paperback (October 2001)

Kretzmann explores Aquinas's theology of creation, which is natural (or philosophical) in that he developed it without depending on the data of Scripture. Because of the special importance of intellective creatures like us, Aquinas's account of the divine origin and organization of the universe includes ingredients of his philosophy of mind.

Metaphysics of Theism by Norman Kretzmann Metaphysics of Theism, Paperback (September 2001)

Kretzmann shows the continuing value of Aquinas's doctrines to the philosophical enterprise today; he argues that natural theology offers the only route by which philosophers can, as philosophers, approach theological propositions, and that the one presented in this book is the best available natural theology.
