Hardcover | 9780268031039 | March 2007
This book of fifteen essays is presented in honor of one of the premier historians of medieval philosophy, Armand Maurer of the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies and the University of Toronto. The authors, internationally recognized scholars in the field of medieval philosophy and theology, are friends, colleagues, and students of Fr. Maurer. They are united in a common love of medieval thought and a common appreciation of philosophizing through the study of the history of philosophy. Their interests and methodologies, however, are diverse, and cover a range from Justin Marytr, who died during the reign of Marcus Aurelius, to Bartholomew Mastrius, a contemporary of Descartes.
R. E. Houser is professor of philosophy at the University of St. Thomas and the Center for Thomistic Studies. He is the author and editor of a number of books, including The Cardinal Virtues: Aquinas, Albert, Philip the Chancellor.
"This volume is dedicated to one of the most outstanding historians of medieval philosophy of our time: Armand Maurer. . . . [The] carefully organized volume offers a wide range of extremely inspiring essays which reflect many of Maurer’s interests and much of his work. . . . [It] is indeed a manifest proof that Maurer’s important work is being continued by his pupils and friends."—Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
