Medieval Philosophy

4 ECTS / Semester / Português

1. The Unit of Medieval Philosophy aims to introduce the student to the knowledge of philosophical thought produced between the 2nd Century of Christianity until the 14th Century. For this, the essential matrices of the formation of the philosophical culture and the times that are shaped by it are exposed, explaining the systems of the main authors: Patristics; ‘Carolingian Renaissance; 'Renaissance' of the 12th Century’; apogee of Scholastics and its decline.
2. Giving privilege to the relationship between Philosophy and Theology, as a model of the Reason-Faith relationship, the most significant themes of medieval speculation (Greek, Latin, Arab and Jewish) are exposed, supporting us in the authors' texts.
3. We lead the student to the knowledge of the «translationes studiorum» and show the philosophical currents that constitute them.
4. Finally, we trained the student to value the medieval tradition, revaluing the pluralities of its philosophical traditions in different cultural spaces.
