PHRL 32200 Medieval Philosophy

GE-Human Culture: Philosophy This course shows how medieval philosophy remains relevant to contemporary life. Like their ancient ancestors, philosophers between 300 C.E. and 1400 C.E. understood philosophy as a way of life. During this time, philosophy flourished in harmony with science and religion across the Islamic, European, and Byzantine worlds. In this course, we explore the works of Augustine, Pseudo-Dionysius, Anselm, Ibn Sina, Al-Ghazali, Ibn Rushd, Maimonides, Aquinas, Scotus, among others, to explore questions about the nature of reality, knowledge, the mind, the divine, and ethical, social, and political relations.
