Medieval Philosophy

Phil 163

Dr. Patrick Goodin

It is temptingly easy to jump from the classical Greek philosophy of Plato and Aristotle to the early modern philosophy of Bacon, Descartes, Locke, Hume, etc., and overlook not only Hellenistic philosophy but also what is called medieval philosophy, i.e., the philosophy done from approximately the fourth century to the early sixteenth century. But should we? In many ways what is called the western tradition it may be necessary to understand philosophy done during the Medieval period as well as the historical forces at work at the time.
