Scholastic Philosophy

£13.99

Product description

In this standard work, Professor Maurice de Wulf, great authority on medieval philosophy, examines the scholastic tradition. After a careful and discriminating examination of the true nature and definition of scholasticism, in which he sifts modern interpretations and misinterpretations of the scholastic spirit, he analyzes (1) the scholastic method; (2) scholastic philosophy in its relations to medieval philosophy in general, to ancient philosophy, to medieval science; (3) scholastic metaphysics, theodicy, general physics, celestial and terrestrial physics, psychology, moral philosophy and logic. The decline of medieval scholasticism is then treated. Examination is not so much in terms of individual thinkers, as is usual in histories oh philosophy, as in terms of "a philosophia communis" of the scholastic tradition. The second part of this work examines the modern scholastic revival, with a discussion of the relations of neoscholasticism and neothomism to history of philosophy, religion and modern science; and an examination of the neoscholastic doctrines. Considerable information is included on the neoscholastic estimation of various trends in modern philosophy.

Book in good condition. xvi+271pp. Signs of shelfwear on the edges and corners of the cover. Firmly bound with no markings to the text. Also contains a catalogue of Dover books at the back.
