    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book must be considered a very helpful companion, resulting from the contributors' hard work. The high level of the presentation of individual medieval philosophers--and of medieval thought in general--shows that each contributor has mastered their subject and put substantial work into the book. I believe that this volume has provided the opportunity to show the brilliance of that work, which sometimes remains anonymous, without compensation or social acknowledgment."
    -Francisco Bertelloni, The Medieval Review

    "Given its cast of contributors, The Cambridge Companion to Medieval Philosophy ought to be quite a good book, and it is: it succeeds in being both balanced and substantive."
    -Mary Sirridge, Louisiana State University

    "Seldom has a scholar had a more productive retirement[...]McGrade has assembled for his volume an array of authorities from both sides of the Atlantic and issued his assignment according to a combination of historical and thematic approaches."
    -R. James Long, Fairfield University, The Thomist
