Throughout the Reformation, appeals to Augustine's authority were commonplace on all sides. His theory of illumination lives on in Malebranche and in Descartes's “light of nature.” His approach to the problem of evil and to human free will is still widely held today. His force was and is still felt not just in philosophy but also in theology, popular religion, and political thought, for example in the theory of the just war (Spade [1994], pp. 57–58) The Classic Jewish Philosophers: From Saadia Through the Renaissance (Supplements to the Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy). Please contact the Director of Graduate Admissions, or the Director of Graduate Studies, with specific questions about the graduate program A History of Medieval Philosophy.

There is no meaning to our life a priori, so the deepest striving is to define ourselves in a random and contingent world On Insoluble Sentences: Chapter One of His Rules for Solving Sophisms (Mediaeval Sources in Translation, Vol. 21). Western philosophers--those of the Eurocentric heritage of philosophy--tend to divide all of philosophy into two categories: practical and pure. Practical philosophy deals with down-to-earth issues like "Why is democracy good?" and "How does one really appreciate a poem?" Ockham holds what nowadays would be characterized as a “higher-order perception” theory of consciousness. Among the most common objections to such a theory is the charge that it gives rise to an infinite regress in higher-order states. In this paper, I examine Ockham’s various responses to the regress problem, focusing in particular on his attempts to restrict the scope of consciousness so as to avoid it The Summa 'In omni doctrina' (MS Munich, Bayrische Staatsbibliothek, CLM 14458, fols. 29ra-39rb) Epistomology in Semantics.

According to Scotus, God’s actions cannot be entirely explained through the use of reason and morality is an act of his will. I will explore the consequences of this idea in further posts regarding William of Ockham. Duns Scotus was a medieval Catholic scholastic philosopher who lived from 1266 – 1308 AD. Scotus’ nickname was the “Subtle Doctor”, because his work was remarkably nuanced and detailed while being broad The Life of Philippus Theophrastus Bombast of Hohenheim Paracelsus. A more radical cosmology was proposed by Bruno, who was an extremely prolific writer. His most significant works include those on the art of memory and the combinatory method of Ramon Llull, as well as the moral dialogues Spaccio de la bestia trionfante (The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast, 1584), Cabala del cavallo pegaseo (The Kabbalah of the Pegasean Horse, 1585) and De gl’heroici furori (The Heroic Frenzies, 1585) Studies in the Philosophy of William of Auvergne Bishop of Paris 1228-1249 (Marquette Studies in Philosophy).
