History of Philosophy
This course aims to familiarize the students with the development of thought in the Medieval period. In doing so it will train them in the methods of philosophical reflection and also expose them to the problems of interpretation.
After a general sketch of the more important thinkers of the Patristic period, the thought of St. Augustine is considered in more detail. This is followed by a general study of the scholastic thinkers, with special emphasis on the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas.
