About the Authors
  • Although best known for his views about universals and his dramatic love affair with Heloise, Peter Abelard (1079-1142) also made important contributions in metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, mind and cognition, philosophical theology, ethics, and literature. The essays in this volume survey the complete range of Abelard's thought by examining his overall achievement in its intellectual and historical context. They also trace Abelard's influence on later thought and his relevance to contemporary philosophical debate.

    • Systematic study of Abelard's life and work not only in philosophy and theology, but also in literature
    • Major contributions by leading scholars on all aspects of his philosophy
    • The first work to employ new editions of key Abelardian texts
