"Kemp examines cognitive psychology from roughly the fourth to the 15th century CE. A brief history of the Middle Ages provides useful context to understand the pithier religious and philosophical variables that influenced psychological thinking in general. Much of the book (as does much of medieval scholarship) revolves around Aristotle's cognitive theory . . . and the medieval debate and interpretation that followed. . . . This book will be of particular interest and value to scholars and enthusiasts of the history of psychology, and also to cognitive psychologists looking for a broader historical-centextual background for their work."-
"[W]ell organized and well conceived."-
Speculum, A Journal of Medieval Studies
