“There is always room for a new look at old things when it is taken by a master who is not afraid to make up his own mind or to accept a justified consensus of opinion, and such is the book now before us. There is nothing better of its size on the market.” — Heythrop Journal

“To write well a history of ideas is notoriously difficult. Dr. Frederick Copleston, an established master who has made both historians and philosophers sit at his feet by his well-known History of Philosophy, wrote some years ago a short account of medieval philosophy. This little book he has now remade and expanded to become a substantial survey.” — Spectator
