About

The aim of this interdisciplinary course is to introduce you to:

  • First, to some crucial philosophical discussions that spanned over the 11th to 14th centuries, such as those on the ontological status of universals; the abstraction and intellection of universals; the body/soul relation; and the supreme good.
  • Second, to the material aspects of the transmission of ancient philosophical texts via the Middle Ages to our time, and to the various methodologies – paleography, codicology and textual criticism – that allow us to reconstruct the ancient and medieval originals so that we can access their content in a reliable way.
