This 1982 book is a history of the great age of scholastism from Abelard to the rejection of Aristotelianism in the Renaissance, combining the highest standards of medieval scholarship with a respect for the interests and insights of contemporary philosophers, particularly those working in the analytic tradition. The volume follows on chronologically from The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy, though it does not continue the histories of Greek and Islamic philosophy but concentrates on the Latin Christian West. Unlike other histories of medieval philosophy that divide the subject matter by individual thinkers, it emphasises the parts of more historical and theological interest. This volume is organised by those topics in which recent philosophy has made the greatest progress.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Cambridge History of Later Medieval Philosophy brings together in one volume an impressively large number of short essays [which] ... serve as exemplars of the proper way to 'foster a ... mutually beneficial relationship between medieval philosophy and contemporary philosophy' ... The authors combine their own ample creative insight into significant philosophical issues with a deep understanding of and appreciation for what their medieval interlocutors had to say about those issues. The editors ... provide a fine general introduction to medieval philosophical literature and to the difficulties it poses for the contemporary reader, specialist and nonspecialist alike.' The Journal of Philosophy
"...a well-documented and plausible new synthesis...it elegantly explicates many intricate philosophical arguments; it identifies promising avenues for further research; and it provides an extremely useful instrument for reference." The Philosophical Review
"...outstanding...will long remain the major guide to later medieval philosophy and related topics. Most of the essays are exciting and challenging, some of them truly brilliant." Speculum
