This study analyses the reception of the ancient Greek philosophy of mind (nous) by German and Georgian thinkers during the European Middle Ages - their diverse structures and their common characteristics. The study focuses on the philosophical treatises on the human mind by the German thinkers Dietrich of Freiberg (1250-1320) and Berthold of Moosburg (14th century) and the Georgian philosopher Joane Petrizi (12th century) and provides a thorough analysis of their writings - both philosophical and historical.
For the first time, different (and hitherto hardly known) textual traditions of transmission and interpretation of Proclus' philosophy - and especially his philosophy of mind in the Elements of Theology (Elementatio theologica) - are presented to and interpreted for a Western audience. Also, for the first time, Joane Petrizi, the first Georgian commentator of the Elements of Theology, and his interpretation of Proclus' conception of soul and reason are the focus of an intense philosophical and historical analysis.
