Homo Animal Nobilissimum: Konturen Des Spezifisch Menschlichen in Der Naturphilosophischen Aristoteleskommentierung Des Dreizehn
by Kohler, Theodor W.
This is a fine hardcover copy with no wear at all. Completely clean inside and out. Text in German. This is volume 94 in the publisher's series 'Studien und Texte zur Geschichte des Mittelalters'. This monograph deals with the philosophical approach of thirteenth-century masters to concrete, practical manifestations of 'quantum ad naturalia' in human lives in their commentaries on Aristotle's works on natural philosophy, both his genuine works and those then considered genuine. It inquires into what they deemed worthy of philosophical debate regarding this topic and how they tackled it. The first of the two volumes describes the cultural surroundings, the scholars' way of approaching the topic, and their discourses on the peculiarity (singularity, unity, consistency) of humankind and on its internal differentiation according to gender, stage of life, social stratification, and differences due to ethnic status or geographic (climatic) diversity. This is the first comprehensive source-based study of the subject; it draws heavily on unedited texts. 10" high X 7" wide, 986 pages. A fine unused copy.
