PHL 2230 - History of Medieval Philosophy

Credits: 4
The course will survey the history of Medieval philosophy.  It will pay special attention to the conflicting demands of the Medieval inheritance, the symbolic struggle between Athens and Jerusalem. On the one hand, as religious believers they placed faith and Scripture at the pinnacle of their investigations; on the other hand, as philosophers they inherited a tradition of rational human thought begun by the pagan Greeks, a tradition that did not give privileged status to faith or revelation, but which nevertheless compelled their respect by its intellectual strength.
