This new introduction replaces Marenbon's bestselling editions Early Medieval Philosophy (1983) and Later Medieval Philosophy (1986) to present a single authoritative and comprehensive study of the period. Completely re-written and updated to include the scholarship of last twenty years, this will be the standard companion for all students of medieval philosophy. It gives a lucid and engaging account of the history of philosophy in the Middle Ages - discussing the main writers and ideas, the social and intellectual contexts, and the important concepts used in medieval philosophy.

Review: Medieval Philosophy: An Historical and Philosophical Introduction

User Review  - Matthew Hurley - Goodreads

Done as much as we're reading for class. Helpful overview of medieval philosophical thought, Islamic, Latin, etc. Marenbon summarizes and clarifies (as much as possible) the intricacies of medieval logical developments. (But I still don't get wide-scope vs narrow-scope necessity.) Read full review
