A dialogue of a philosopher with a Jew, and a Christian by Peter Abelard( Book )
77 editions published between 1831 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Peter Abelard (1079-1142) is widely recognized as one of the most important writers of the twelfth century, famed for his skill in logic as well as for his romance with Heloise. Even among Abelard's writings, the Collationes - or Dialogue between a Christian, a Philosopher, and a Jew - are remarkable for their daring and intellectual imaginativeness. Written probably c.1130, the work contains the fullest exposition of many aspects of Abelard's ethics, the only statement of his unusual eschatological theory, and some of his most interesting ideas about faith and the relationship between theism and revealed religion." "This is the first full critical edition of the Collationes. Based on an entirely new collation of the manuscripts, it provides a facing-page English translation, detailed notes, and an extensive historical and philosophical introduction."--Jacket

"Perhaps his most important contribution to philosophy and theology is the method which he developed in his "Sic et Non" (Yea and Nay), a method germinally contained in the teaching of his predecessors, and afterwards brought to more definite form by Alexander of Hales and St. Thomas Aquinas. It consisted in placing before the student the reasons pro and contra, on the principle that truth is to be attained only by a dialectical discussion of apparently contradictory arguments and authorities."

Summary: Petrus Abaelardus (1079|1142), berühmt durch seine Liebes- und Leidensgeschichte mit Heloise, die er in seinem autobiographischen Werk "Historia calamitatum" niederschrieb, zählte zu den angesehensten Gelehrten seiner Zeit. Brilliant als Philosoph und Theologe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Scholastik, indem er theologische Sachverhalte durch sprachlogische Überlegungen zu erhellen suchte. Abaelards Ethik wird hier in neuer deutscher Übersetzung präsentiert. Der kritische Text beruht ebenfalls auf einer neuen Kollation der Handschriften und Analyse der Überlieferung. In dieser bedeutsamen Schrift legt Abaelard die Prinzipien seiner intentionalen Ethik dar. Damit liegt nach dem Römerbriefkommentar nun das zweite wichtige Werk dieses berühmten Philosophen und Theologen des 12. Jahrhunderts in den "Fontes Christiani" vor
