This module will provide an introduction to medieval philosophy. This will involve studying the ideas of philosophers such as Abelard, Anselm, Aquinas, Duns Scotus, William of Ockham and others. The issues they discussed included the relationship between faith and reason, arguments for God’s existence, the difference between divine and created nature, the metaphysical status of universal concepts, and the nature of individuation. The course will also look at the influence of medieval Arabic philosophers, late mediaeval mystics who are steeped in the Scholastic tradition, such as Meister Eckhart and Nicholas of Cusa, and the legacy and influence of Scholasticism on later philosophy.
