The Platonic Tradition in the Middle Ages: A Doxographic Approach

Front Cover
Stephen Gersh, Maarten J.F.M. Hoenen
Walter de Gruyter, Feb 6, 2013 - Philosophy - 474 pages
This collection of essays delineates the history of the rather disparate intellectual tradition usually labeled as "Platonic" or "Neoplatonic". In chronological order, the book covers the most eminent philosophic schools of thought within that tradition. The most important terms of the Platonic tradition are studied together with a discussion of their semantic implications, the philosophical and theological claims associated with the terms, the sources that furnish the terms, and the intellectual traditions aligned with or opposed to them. The contributors thereby provide a vivid intellectual map of the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Contributions are written in English or German.
