'The Cambridge History of Later Medieval Philosophy brings together in one volume an impressively large number of short essays [which] … serve as exemplars of the proper way to 'foster a … mutually beneficial relationship between medieval philosophy and contemporary philosophy' … The authors combine their own ample creative insight into significant philosophical issues with a deep understanding of and appreciation for what their medieval interlocutors had to say about those issues. The editors … provide a fine general introduction to medieval philosophical literature and to the difficulties it poses for the contemporary reader, specialist and nonspecialist alike.' The Journal of Philosophy
This 1982 book is a history of the great age of scholastism from Abelard to the rejection of Aristotelianism in the Renaissance. This volume concentrates on the Latin Christian West instead of Greek and Islamic philosophy.
