'… most satisfying to read, combining a clear sense of purpose with an exemplary clarity of thought. It is difficult to overestimate its importance for the study of Abelard and of twelfth-century intellectual culture in general.' Early Medieval Europe
'… not only an outstanding exposition of Abelard's philosophy, but a work that opens up for specialists and non-specialists the world of twelfth-century thought.' The Times Literary Supplement
This 1997 book offers a major reassessment of the philosophy of Peter Abelard (1079–1142), including a discussion of his life and letters, which argues that he was not, as usually presented, a predominantly critical thinker but a constructive one.See all Product description

This book shed new light, enlarged on existing ideas, regarding Abelard as a person and as a philosopher, logician, or whatever shelf you put him on. I especially enjoyed the sections dealing with his theological writings, as I'm not much of a philosophy fan, although that section was well written. Also interesting was the referencing to other writers' opinions of Abelard and his body of work, whether pro or con, through the ages.
