About the Authors
  • The third volume of The Cambridge Translations of Medieval Philosophical Texts will allow access, for the first time in English, to major texts that form the debate over mind and knowledge at the center of medieval philosophy. Beginning with 13th-century attempts to classify the soul's powers and to explain the mind's place within the soul, the volume proceeds systematically to consider human knowledge, divine illumination, intentionality and mental representation. This volume will be an important resource for scholars and students of medieval philosophy, history, theology and literature.

    • First-ever translations of important medieval texts dealing with the medieval debates over mind and knowledge
    • Medieval studies is a good area for us
    • Cross-disciplinary sales in medieval philosophy, history, theology, and literature

    Reviews & endorsements

    "All medievalists should applaud the excellent work of Pasnau in providing a fine collection of translations that make late medieval writings on philosophy of mind and epistemology accessible to twenty-first-century students and scholars. This volume offers us all ample evidence of the great strides made by the philosophers and theologians of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries in the development of what we now know as 'cognitive science.'"
