"Klima has produced an impressive volume, with texts on a wide variety of medieval philosophical discussion points that show the range of views and, broadly speaking, the trajectory of historical development on the individual issues. The translations themselves are first rate, several appear for the first time in this volume, and they are accompanied by expert introductions and annotations, as well as by a guide to further reading.... Klima's anthology of medieval philosophical texts will serve well as a course textbook or for a reader interested in getting an idea of some main issues in medieval philosophy and some important medieval views on those issues." (Russell L. Friedman, Medieval Review)
"A well-chosen and exciting selection of readings, demonstrating not only the richness of medieval philosophy but also its relevance for philosophical debate today."
—Michael Beaney, University of York
"This work sets a new standard for teaching anthologies in medieval philosophy. Because it is organized along medieval rather than modern lines, it offers readers a glimpse of the medieval vision of higher education, beginning with the rudiments of learned discourse in dialectic or logic and then moving on to natural philosophy and metaphysics, the study of which culminates in ethics."
—Jack Zupko, Emory University
"An essential collection of central readings covering a millennium of philosophy, from Augustine to John Buridan. An important sourcebook."
