Description

Why do good things happen to bad people? Can we prove whether God exists? What is the difference between right and wrong? Medieval philosophers were centrally concerned with such questions: questions which are as relevant today as a thousand years ago when the likes of Anselm and Aquinas sought to resolve them.

In this fast-paced, enlightening guide, Sharon M Kaye directly introduces listeners to the philosophers' writings and the criticisms levied against them. Taking us on a tour of medieval philosophy, Kaye reveals the debt it owes to Aristotle and Plato, and showing how medieval thought is still inspiring philosophers and thinkers today.
