TEXTS: All readings are on the World Wide Web site http://people.uvawise.edu/philosophy/, and are linked to this syllabus. PURPOSE OF THE COURSE: The purpose of the course is to introduce the student to the Western philosophical heritage from its beginnings in classical Greek culture through the Middle Ages The Ethics of Nature in the Middle Ages: On Boccaccio's Poetaphysics (The New Middle Ages). This reflects a failure to think clearly through things and articulate them properly. I think there’s been a desire for clarity for more than a century now; Pope St. Pius X identified it in his condemnation of Modernism. Doubt is at the source of the many ambiguities in the Church. He continually attempts to sew it in the Church, and our response must be to answer with clear articulations of the unchanging truths of the Catholic faith Mythic Paradigms in Literature, Philosophy, and the Arts (Studies on Themes and Motifs in Literature).

Translators had naturally to depend upon the generosity of their aristocratic or wealthy patrons, who, even when they affected interest in other than the purely practical disciplines of astrology or medicine at all, were content with this species of ethical and religious literature, which was cherished and disseminated partly as a matter of social refinement and partly as a matter of moral edification Out of the Flames. Scarcely any two thinkers would define philosophy alike; nor are they likely to agree as to the significance of its basic concepts. The value of a one-volume dictionary, nonetheless, makes the effort worthwhile. "Dictionaries are like watches," Samuel Johnson said; "the best cannot be expected to go quite true, but the worst is better than none."

As professor of the history of philosophy at Harvard University—where he was known as Harvard’s “resident sage”—Wolfson had become universally recognized as one of the greatest scholars of his generation. In a body of work which spanned over half a century, he erected what is certainly among the most subversive interpretations ever offered of the philosophical development of the West. This achievement, a propitious alliance of penetrating critical acumen and intimidating erudition, was, however, much more than merely a stunning contribution to the history of a discipline: it amounted, in fact, to a daring new lease on Western thought Machiavelli in Hell. In fact, the book is a dialogue with the Lady Philosophy.

By not allowing Christianity to become totalitarian, Judaism forces Christianity to remain somewhat rootless and thereby more 'feminine', Jewish and ethical" (ibid, p. 142) On Human Nature (Aquinas). First, some philosophers, particularly John Duns Scotus and William of Ockham, held that there are passions of the will.
