Beschreibung

The essays in this book give the first comprehensive picture of the medieval development of philosophical theories concerning the nature of emotions and the influence they have on human choice. The historical span reaches from the late ancient to the early modern philosophy, showing in detail how old and new ideas were bred and brought into the Middle Ages, and how they resulted in a genuinely modern perspective in the thought of Descartes.

Pressestimmen

"This is a long overdue series of studies on a very important topic. The essays in this first volume demonstrate the sophistication with which medieval and early modern thinkers addressed some perennial questions in the philosophy of mind, questions that are at the forefront of contemporary philosophical work in this field. At the very least, they bring out the continued relevance of doing philosophy historically."
(Steven Nadler, Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin, Madison)
"Those of us, who like me have written about weakness of the will, and the emotions, without benefit of knowledge of medieval philosophy, have much to learn from this wide-ranging collection. From Anselm on sin to Vives on laughter, from theological to medical approaches, this book is crammed with riches."
(Annette Baier, Emerita Professor of Philosophy, University of Pittsburgh)
"[...]It is an excellent book, and I am glad to know of its existence [...] and I look forward to making use of it in my teaching and research."
(Eleonore Stump, Robert J. Henle S.J. Professor of Philosophy, Saint Louis University)
"[...] this collection is extraordinarily useful for philosophers who work outside the area of mediaeval and early modern philosophy. The contributors are well-known and the articles clear and accessible. As a whole, the book does much to open up an area of great interest. In recent years there has been a large amount of scholarly interest in emotions, their nature and role, in ancient philosophy. It is fascinating to find the continuation and development of similar debates in mediaeval philosophers. Outside the work of specialists, mediaeval philosophers tend to be seen disproportionately in terms of their metaphysical and theological interests, and this work helps to give a better view. It is also fascinating to see the relation of the mediaeval thinkers to Descartes; old ideas of a sharp break between `mediaeval' and `early modern' are increasingly seen as inadequate."
(Julia Annas, Regents Professor, Dept. of Philosophy, University of Arizona)
"...Though some essays are more history than philosophy, the collection nevertheless balances out and brings to the reader an in-depth study of what the editors rightly describe as a neglected field of research...it is highly recommended to those whose research deals with such topics [rational choice, free will, or weakness of will], or is in the field of the history of philosophy of mind."
(Kurt Smith Bloomsburg, University of Pennsylvania in Journal of the History of Philosophy, 42:1 (January 2004)
