A Way Into Scholasticism from the Author: Peter S. Dillard. St. Bonaventure of Bagnoregio's The Soul's Journey into God is a masterpiece of thirteenth-century Scholasticism. Unfortunately no comprehensive analysis of Bonaventure's seminal treatise exists that is accessible to contemporary audiences. Reinvigorating the medieval tradition of critical commentary for the twenty-first century, this book introduces readers to basic Scholastic concepts and arguments by expounding and evaluating Bonaventure's speculative system. Dillard also highlights the relevance of Bonaventure's thought for contemporary philosophical theology.

Conscience And Conscientious Objections from the Author: Anders Schinkel. In Western countries conscientious objection is usually accommodated in various ways, at least in certain areas (military conscription, medicine) and to some extent. It appears to be regarded as fundamentally different from other kinds of objection. But why? This study argues that conscientious objection cannot be understood as long as conscience is misunderstood. The author provides a new interpretation of the historical development of expressions of conscience and thought on the subject, and offers a new approach to conscientious objection rooted in the symbol-approach to conscience.

Studies In Scholasticism from the Author: Marcia L. Colish. The papers brought together in this volume reflect three of Professor Colish's interests as a historian of medieval scholastic thought. The first group presents investigations into Peter Lombard (d. 1161) and his contemporaries; the second looks at how Peter's theology became mainstream Paris theology in the period between the Lombard's death and the early 13th century. The last two papers offer broader reflections on the story lines of high medieval intellectual history.

Universals In Second Scholasticism from the Author: Daniel Heider. This study aims to present a comparative analysis of philosophical theories of universals espoused by the foremost representatives of the three main schools of early modern scholastic thought. The book introduces the doctrines of Francisco Suárez, S.J. (1548–1617), the Thomist John of St. Thomas, O.P. (1589–1644), and the Scotists Bartolomeo Mastri da Meldola, O.F.M. Conv. (1602–1673) and Bonaventura Belluto, O.F.M. Conv. (1600–1676). The author examines in detail their mutual doctrinal delineation as well as the conceptualist tenet of the Jesuit Pedro Hurtado de Mendoza (1578–1641), whose thought constitutes an important systematic point of comparison especially with Suárez’s doctrine. The book offers the first comparative elaboration of the issue of universals, in both its metaphysical and its epistemological aspects, in the era of second scholasticism.

An Introduction To Scholastic Philosophy from the Author: Maurice de Wulf. Originally published under the title: 'Scholasticism Old and New' In this corrected edition of a standard work, Professor Maurice de Wulf, great authority on medieval philosophy, examines the scholastic tradition. After a careful and discriminating examination of the true nature and definition of scholasticism, in which he sifts modern interpretations and misinterpretations of the scholastic spirit, he analyzes the scholastic method, scholastic philosophy in its relations to medieval philosophy in general as well as to ancient philosophy and medieval science; scholastic metaphysics, theodicy, general physics, celestial and terrestrial physics, psychology, moral philosophy and logic. The decline of medieval scholasticism is then treated. Examination is not so much in terms of individual thinkers, as is usual in histories of philosophy, as in terms of a philosophia communis of the scholastic tradition. The second part of this work examines the modern scholastic revival, with a discussion of the relations of neoscholasticism and neothomism to history of philosophy, religion, and modern science; and an examination of the neoscholastic doctrines. Considerable information is included on the neoscholastic estimation of various trends in modern philosophy. Written by one of the very greatest historians of medieval philosophy, this book is useful both as a corrective to earlier histories and as an excellent expoisition and evaluation of the scholastic position.
