Summary note
ON MEDIEVAL PHILOSOPHY provides readers with an accessible and concise overview of the key elements of Medieval Philosophy, devoting equal attention to the Christian, Islamic, and Jewish traditions. This volume aims to expand our notions of a crucial, yet underexplored, period in the history of Western philosophy and to draw attention to the implications of medieval philosophy for the present age. The Wadsworth Philosophical Topics Series presents readers with concise, timely, and insightful introductions to a variety of traditional and contemporary philosophical subjects. With this series edited by Robert Talisse of Vanderbilt University, philosophy students will be able to discover the richness of philosophical inquiry across a wide array of concepts, including hallmark philosophical themes and topics typically underrepresented in mainstream philosophy publishing. Written by a distinguished list of scholars who have been noted for their exceptional teaching abilities, this series presents the vast sweep of today's philosophical exploration in highly accessible and affordable volumes.
