Medieval Philosophy by Dr. John Marenbon

Book Description

This new introduction replaces Marenbon's best-selling editions Early Medieval Philosophy (1983) and Later Medieval Philosophy (1987) to present a single authoritative and comprehensive study of the period. It gives a lucid and engaging account of the history of philosophy in the Middle Ages, discussing the main writers and ideas, the social and intellectual contexts, and the important concepts used in medieval philosophy. Medieval Philosophy gives a chronological account which: * treats all four main traditions of philosophy that stem from the Greek heritage of late antiquity: Greek Christian philosophy, Latin philosophy, Arabic philosophy and Jewish philosophy * provides a series of 'study' sections for close attention to arguments and shorter 'interludes' that point to the wider questions of the intellectual context * combines philosophical analysis with historical background * includes a helpful detailed guide to further reading and an extensive bibliography All students of medieval philosophy, medieval history, theology or religion will find this necessary reading.

Medieval Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction by Dr. John Marenbon Medieval Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (January 2016)

In this book John Marenbon discusses the extraordinary breadth of medieval philosophy as written by Christians in Greek and Latin, Muslims in Arabic and by Jews in Hebrew, from c. 500 to c. 1550. He considers important factors such as where and when it took place, its social setting and its links with religion.

Oxford Handbook of Medieval Philosophy by Dr. John Marenbon Oxford Handbook of Medieval Philosophy, Paperback (June 2015)

This Handbook shows the links between medieval and contemporary philosophy. Topic-based essays on all areas of philosophy explore this relationship and introduce the main themes of medieval philosophy. They are preceded by the fullest chronological survey now available of the different traditions: Latin and Greek, Islamic and Jewish.

Continuity and Innovation in Medieval and Modern Philosophy by Dr. John Marenbon Continuity and Innovation in Medieval and Modern Philosophy, Hardback (August 2013)

The usual division of philosophy into 'medieval' and 'modern' may obscure very real continuities in the ideas of thinkers in the western and Islamic traditions. This book examines three areas where these continuities are particularly clear: knowledge, the mind, and language.
