PHIL 7706 Advanced Topics in Medieval Philosophy (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

The class is especially designed for giving graduate students a strong and in-depth presentation of medieval thought, an essential moment of the development of western philosophy. This semester, we will study how Neo-Platonism and Aristotelism dialogued, argued, merged, parted in medieval metaphysics, especially in Aquinas', Scotus' and Ockham's thought, during the 13th and 14th centuries. The opportunity will thus be offered to work on fundamental concepts such as participation, causality, creation, being, essence and existence, form and matter, substance and accident, etc.
