Editorial Reviews

"Having these key figures present in one volume is sorely needed inthe field, and this book provides...a one-volume reference work tofill the gap. As part of the Blackwell Companions toPhilosophy series, I highly recommend this work." ReferenceReviews

"A very useful tool indeed both for specialists and amateurs! Itbrings together a remarkable bunch among the best scholars in thefield from all over the world. The information is rich, precise,and up-to-date; yet the arrangement of the material is simple andhandy." Claude Panaccio, Université du Québec àTrois-Rivières <!--end-->

"An unparalleled source of information on the lives and thoughtof no fewer than 138 medieval Christian, Islamic, and Jewishphilosophers. There are substantial essays here on the well-knownheavyweights, such as Augustine, Averroes, Aquinas, Maimonides, andOckham, but also useful accounts of the somewhat less well known,and the essential minimum on the various shadowy figures of theperiod, such as Berthold of Moosburg and William of Ware. This bookis a ‘must-have’ for any serious student of medievalphilosophy or theology." Gareth B. Matthews, University ofMassachusetts, Amherst

"This volume is a welcome addition to the currently availablereference works on medieval philosophy. Its well-written historicalarticles and its concise and helpful entries on almost 140 medievalphilosophers makes this book an indispensable scholarly tool forspecialists and non-specialists alike." Eleonore Stump, St.Louis University

"This is an impressive collection of work on a perenniallyunderappreciated period of philosophical thought, and I willcertainly be recommending it both to my students and to colleaguesas a valuable resource in gaining familiarity with medievalthought, within and without the Latin West." - Christina VanDyke, Calvin College
