Medieval Philosophy is devoted to the period known as the Middle Ages. It considers the rich traditions of Arab, Jewish and Latin philosophy, which began to flourish in the ninth century and continued, in the Latin West, until the early seventeenth century. The volume begins with Boethius, the late antiquity thinker who was enormously influential in the medieval Latin West, and covers a spectrum including Avicenna, Averroes, Maimonides, Abelard, Aquinas, Aureoli, all the way to medieval logic and the cultural context of medieval philosophy in both Islam and the Christian West. Medieval Philosophy offers fresh perspectives on a complex and rapidly changing area of research, in which Arab and Jewish Philosophy are considered in their own right, rather than, as sources for Latin thinkers, and where the different traditions in medieval philosophy are clearly explained.
