9780415281133: Medieval Philosophy: An Historical and Philosophical Introduction

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.

About the Author:

John Marenbon is a senior research fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, UK.

Review:

'Professor Marenbon’s book is an authoritative, comprehensive, yet accessible survey of medieval philosophy, written by an expert at the height of his critical powers. Not only does the book guide the reader through the diverse issues of medieval philosophy, but provides sagacious instruction and illuminating commentary on the central topics of its chosen period of study.' – Martin Stone, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium

'Marenbon has managed to write about an enormous array of topics in a lucid and accessible way. His prose is clear without being condescending, informative without being either patronizing or importunate. The beginner will find it approachable and unpretentious.' – Peter King, University of Toronto, Canada
