This book of fifteen essays is presented in honor of one of the premier historians of medieval philosophy, Armand Maurer of the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies and the University of Toronto. The authors, internationally recognized scholars in the field of medieval philosophy and theology, are friends, colleagues, and students of Fr. Maurer. They are united in a common love of medieval thought and a common appreciation of philosophizing through the study of the history of philosophy. Their interests and methodologies, however, are diverse, and cover a range from Justin Marytr, who died during the reign of Marcus Aurelius, to Bartholomew Mastrius, a contemporary of Descartes. The contributions are arranged chronologically, beginning with John Rist's essay on Christian philosophy during the patristic era. Richard Taylor demonstrates the importance of Arabic philosophical thought for the Latin West during the scholastic era, which began in the thirteenth century. R. James Long treats the early scholastics Richard Fishacre and Richard Rufus. Following Maurer's central interest, the majority of the essays (by R. E. Houser, Leo Elders, Lawrence Dewan, David B. Twetten, Mary C. Sommers, and James P. Reilly) treat aspects of the thought of Thomas Aquinas. But just as Maurer did not confine himself to Aquinas, this volume reaches out to other thirteenth-century figures and topics. John Wippel looks at Godfrey of Fontaines, Timothy B. Noone studies the Franciscans Matthew of Aquasparta and Peter John Olivi, and Stephen Brown adds the Franciscan Peter of Candia. Reflecting Maurer's own interests in fourteenth-century philosophy are the contributions of Calvin Normore on logic and Girard Etzkorn on the Franciscan Francis of Mayronis. The essay by Norman Wells focuses on the Franciscan Batholomew Mastrius. The volume concludes with a wonderful autobiography of his education by Maurer himself and a biliography of Maurer's writings.

Reviews

"This volume is dedicated to one of the most outstanding historians of medieval philosophy of our time: Armand Maurer. . . . [The] carefully organized volume offers a wide range of extremely inspiring essays which reflect many of Maurer's interests and much of his work. . . . [It] is indeed a manifest proof that Maurer's important work is being continued by his pupils and friends." --"Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews" "Fr. Maurer's work at the Pontifical Institute for Medieval Studies and the U. of Toronto has made him a premier historian of medieval philosophy, and here his friends, colleagues and former students provide 15 essays that reflect the range and depth of this studies." --"Reference and Research Book News" ." . . All the contributors are or were 'friends, students, and colleagues' of Maurer, and all the essays deal with Maurer's avocation--medieval philosophy. Although it is a commonplace in reviews of such anthologies to complain of uneven quality, happily in the present case the essays are almost uniformly well-written and well-argued." --"Choice" This volume is dedicated to one of the most outstanding historians of medieval philosophy of our time: Armand Maurer. . . .
