This volume offers a wide-ranging and profound collection of essays on philosophical psychology and conceptions of modality from antiquity to the present day, with some essays on the philosophy of religion as well.

The contributions deal with mind’s cognitive and emotional functions, the modal notions and the philosophical approaches to religion as well as logical, semantic and epistemological issues concerning them. Of twenty-one contributions, six focus on ancient thought, nine on medieval thought, and six on modern and contemporary thought.

The book illustrates how philosophical theories of mind and modalities developed through the centuries in western philosophy. It is particularly useful for those interested in the analysis of emotions, their cognitive bearing and ethical significance.
