"Sir Anthony Kenny presents a fascinating guide through more than a millennium of thought from 400 AD onwards, charting the story of philosophy from the founders of Christian and Islamic thought through to the Renaissance. The middle ages saw a great flourishing of philosophy, and the intellectual endeavour of the era reaches its climax in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries with the systems of the great schoolmen such as Thomas Aquinas and John Duns Scotus." "The fruit of a lifetime's scholarship and insight, Medieval Philosophy sets the philosophers and their thought in historical context, and explains the significance and impact of each wave of new ideas. It is the second volume in a magisterial series which brings the history of philosophy alive to anyone wanting to understand the roots of Western civilization. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET.
