The Cambridge Companion to Medieval Philosophy, first published in 2003, takes its readers into one of the most exciting periods in the history of philosophy. It spans a millennium of thought extending from Augustine to Thomas Aquinas and beyond. It includes not only the thinkers of the Latin West but also the profound contributions of Islamic and Jewish thinkers such as Avicenna and Maimonides. Leading specialists examine what it was like to do philosophy in the cultures and institutions of the Middle Ages and engage all the areas in which medieval philosophy flourished, including language and logic, the study of God and being, natural philosophy, human nature, morality, and politics. The discussion is supplemented with chronological charts, biographies of the major thinkers, and a guide to the transmission and translation of medieval texts. The volume will be invaluable for all who are interested in the philosophical thought of this period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an excellent introduction, commendably fulfilling its requirements.' Journal of Religious Studies
'The latest addition to the Cambridge Companion series contains much that will be useful to the student of mediaeval philosophy ...' The Philosophical Quarterly
"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
