Editorial Reviews

"Another strength of the book is Koterski's skillful way of motivating philosophical interest in concepts and ideas that might otherwise seem arcane to the beginner . . .Koterski gives a thought provoking analysis of several basic concepts that permeate medieval thought and provides a thorough account of the varied sources that influenced reasoning about these concepts." (American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, 1 October 2010)

"Strikingly clear, succinct, and erudite, this book will be treasured by beginners and established scholars alike. As the relationship of religious faith and the human sciences becomes an ever more pressing societal issue, contemporary philosophers will greatly benefit from Koterski's masterful exposition of the insights of medieval thinkers." -- Matthew Levering, Ave Maria University

"Father Koterski is a master of Jesuit pedagogy. His chapters introduce key themes that still dominate Western philosophy. No serious student of philosophy or theology should miss reading this book."--Romanus Cessario, O.P., St John’s Seminary, Boston, Massachusetts
