Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0130213152, Paperback)

For courses in Medieval Philosophy. Designed to be accessible to today's students, this anthology of readings in Western Medieval philosophy represents the towering medieval thinkers-- Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and William of Ockham--as well as other medieval figures. The readings consider ethics and politics, but the focus is on metaphysics and epistemology--questions on the nature of universals, the nature and essence of God, the relationship of God to time and creation, and the ability of humans to know God and creation. The text features the best available translations of texts--complete works or complete selections of works--which are both central to each philosopher's thought and are widely accepted as part of the "canon." The selections are readable and accessible, while still being faithful to the original. Introductions to each philosopher, an abundance of drawings, diagrams, photographs, and a timeline keep students focused throughout.
