Description

A good many of the philosophical sessions currently on offer each year focus on the work of a particular thinker. There are two aims that distinguish the session, "Intellect and Cognition in Medieval Philosophy." First, by not centering on the thought of one individual, this session aims to open the door to a broader consideration of the various currents and debates within medieval philosophy by bringing several papers into focus around one specific topic central to medieval reflection. Second, this session will focus on a theme that is relevant to several major discussions in medieval philosophy, from the relationship of thought and world to philosophical anthropology. Moreover, philosophical positions on intellect and cognition had direct reverberations within medieval theology, especially in respect to medieval accounts of the Trinity and the humanity of Christ. This session is especially interested in attracting an interlocking set of proposals which covers the thought of different figures in complimentary fashion.
