Petr Dvořák, Tomáš Machula (eds.): Explorations in Late Scholasticism
Special Issue of The Philosophical Journal 2016, 208 pages.
The Special Issue Explorations in Late Scholasticism consists of nine scholarly studies that focus on various topics of “second scholasticism”. This previously underestimated stream of philosophical and theological thought of the 16th and 17th centuries is currently the subject of intense research interest. It turns out that this study is helping to better understand well-known early modern authors such as Descartes, Leibniz, and others. Moreover, it is a sophisticated elaboration of a number of ideas from earlier medieval scholastics. Last but not least, the second-scholastic solutions to philosophical problems also inspire purely contemporary discussions within analytic philosophy. The authors, leading Czech and foreign researchers in the field, present interesting topics from the field of ethics, philosophical anthropology, theory of cognition, and metaphysics. They thus follow up on the efforts of Professor Stanislav Sousedík, to whom the book is dedicated on the occasion of his jubilee.
