Editorial Reviews

"Another strength of the book is Koterski's skillful way ofmotivating philosophical interest in concepts and ideas that mightotherwise seem arcane to the beginner . . .Koterski gives a thoughtprovoking analysis of several basic concepts that permeate medievalthought and provides a thorough account of the varied sources thatinfluenced reasoning about these concepts." (American CatholicPhilosophical Quarterly, 1 October 2010)

"Strikingly clear, succinct, and erudite, this book will betreasured by beginners and established scholars alike. As therelationship of religious faith and the human sciences becomes anever more pressing societal issue, contemporary philosophers willgreatly benefit from Koterski's masterful exposition of theinsights of medieval thinkers." -- Matthew Levering, Ave MariaUniversity

"Father Koterski is a master of Jesuit pedagogy. His chaptersintroduce key themes that still dominate Western philosophy. Noserious student of philosophy or theology should miss reading thisbook."--Romanus Cessario, O.P., St John’s Seminary, Boston,Massachusetts
