|An Introduction to Scholastic Philosophy|
Medieval and Modern Translated by P. Coffey
2012, 327 S, Kt, (Ontos)
The object of the book is to meet and combat false conceptions, to co-ordinate true notions, and so to furnish the reader with some general information on the old and the new scholasticism. The advantage of the book is its two-sided perspective that contains historical investigations about the ancient sources of the scholastic philosophy and the decline from it. But it contains also a systematic perspective by which the doctrines of the scholastic philosophizing are collected systematically. Therefore this book is an scholarly introduction into the scholastic philosophy dedicated for undergraduates.
Maurice De Wulf, 1867-1947, a Thomistic philosopher, professor of philosophy at the Catholic University of Leuven, is one of the pioneers of the historiography of medieval philosophy.
