The medieval Christian philosophers : an introduction by Richard Cross( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The High Middle Ages were remarkable for their coherent sense of 'Christendom': of people who belonged to a homogeneous Christian society marked by uniform rituals of birth and death and worship. That uniformity, which came under increasing strain as national European characteristics became more pronounced, achieved perhaps its most perfect intellectual expression in the thought of the western Christian thinkers who are sometimes called 'scholastic theologians'. This book offers the first focused introduction to these thinkers based on the individuals themselves and their central preoccupations
Duns Scotus on God by Richard Cross( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Franciscan John Duns Scotus (c. 1266-1308) is the philosopher's theologian par excellence-more than any of his contemporaries, he is interested in arguments for their own sake. Making use of the tools of modern philosophy, Richard Cross presents a thorough account of Duns Scotus' arguments on God and the Trinity. Providing extensive commentary on central passages from Scotus, many of which are presented in translation in this book, Cross offers clear expositions of Scotus' elliptical writing. Cross' account shows that, in addition to being a philosopher of note, Scotus is a creative and original theologian who offers new insights into many old problems

Duns Scotus's theory of cognition by Richard Cross( Book )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Cross provides the first complete and detailed account of Duns Scotus's theory of cognition, tracing the processes involved in cognition from sensation, through intuition and abstraction, to conceptual thought. He provides an analysis of the ontological status of the various mental items (acts and dispositions) involved in cognition, and a new account of Scotus on nature of conceptual content. Cross goes on to offer a novel, reductionist, interpretation of Scotus's view of the ontological status of representational content, as well as new accounts of Scotus's opinions on intuitive cognition, intelligible species, and the varieties of consciousness. Scotus was a perceptive but highly critical reader of his intellectual forebears, and this volume places his thought clearly within the context of thirteenth-century reflections on cognitive psychology, influenced as they were by Aristotle, Augustine, and Avicenna. As far as possible, this book traces developments in Scotus's thought during the ten or so highly productive years that formed the bulk of his intellectual life
Communicatio idiomatum : Reformation christological debates by Richard Cross( )

10 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a radical reinterpretation of the sixteenth-century Christological debates between Lutheran and Reformed theologians on the ascription of divine and human predicates to the person of the incarnate Son of God (the communicatio idiomatum). It does so by close attention to the arguments deployed by the protagonists in the discussion, and to the theologians' metaphysical and semantic assumptions, explicit and implicit. It traces the central contours of the Christological debates, from the discussion between Luther and Zwingli in the 1520s to the Colloquy of Montbe'liard in 1586. The book shows that Luther's Christology is thoroughly Medieval, and that innovations usually associated with Luther - in particular, that Christ's human nature comes to share in divine attributes - should be ascribed instead to his younger contemporary Johannes Brenz. The discussion is highly sensitive to the differences between the various Luther groups - followers of Brenz, and the different factions aligned in varying ways with Melanchthon - and to the differences between all of these and the Reformed theologians. And by locating the Christological discussions in their immediate Medieval background, the book also provides a comprehensive account of the continuities and discontinuities between the two eras. In these ways, it is shown that the standard interpretations of the Reformation debates on the matter are almost wholly mistaken"--
The Routledge companion to medieval philosophy by Richard Cross( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like any other group of philosophers, scholastic thinkers from the Middle Ages disagreed about even the most fundamental of concepts. With their characteristic style of rigorous semantic and logical analysis, they produced a wide variety of diverse theories about a huge number of topics. The Routledge Companion to Medieval Philosophy offers readers an outstanding survey of many of these diverse theories, on a wide array of subjects. Its thirty-six chapters, all written exclusively for this Companion by leading international scholars, are organized into seven parts: I. Language and Logic II. Metaphysics III. Cosmology and Physics IV. Psychology V. Cognition VI. Ethics and Moral Philosophy VII. Political Philosophy In addition to shedding new light on the most well known philosophical debates and problems of the medieval era, the Companion brings to the fore topics that may not traditionally be associated with scholastic philosophy, but were in fact a veritable part of the tradition. These include chapters covering scholastic theories about propositions, atomism, consciousness, and democracy and representation. The Routledge Companion to Medieval Philosophy is a helpful, comprehensive introduction to the field for undergraduate students and other newcomers as well as a unique and valuable resource for researchers in all areas of philosophy"--

Metaphysics of the Incarnation, The by Richard Cross( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period from Thomas Aquinas to Duns Scotus is one of the richest in the history of Christian theology. The Metaphysics of the Incarnation aims to provide a thorough examination of the doctrine in this era, making explicit its philosophical and theological foundations. Medieval theologians believed that there were good reasons for supposing that Christ's human nature was an individual. In the light of this, Part 1 discusses how the various thinkers held that an individual nature could be united to a divine person. Part 2 shows how one divine person could be incarnate without any other. Part

Western philosophy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Greek and Roman philosophers. Beginning in Greece and Asia Minor, the birthplace of Western philosophy and the Pre-Socratics (Heraclitus of Ephesus, Parmenides of Elea, Zeno of Elea, Pythagoras of Croton, Anaxagoras of Clazomenae, Empedocles of Acragas). The program examines the nature of philosophy itself and what prompted the pioneers of antiquity to ask fundamental questions about human nature and our world. The chronological journey charts the development of philosophical thought, exploring its relationship with early mathematics and the natural and physical sciences. Discusses why the observations and theories of Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle remain valid in the twenty-first century. The turbulent period following the decline of the Roman Empire saw the rise of Christianity and the emergence of questions about the nature of God. Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Aquinas, and John Duns Scotus developed their own fusion of Christianity and classical philosophy. Examines why the ideas of Plato and Aristotle lived on through the philosophy of the early Christian theologians and helped form the foundations of modern Christian thought. Features location footage of ancient remains in Greece and Turkey and re-creations and reconstructions
