Description: 

This seminar examines the scholastic approach to the history of philosophy exemplified by Etienne Gilson against the background of its foundation in the thought of Aristotle as it was appropriated by Thomas Aquinas in the thirteenth century.  It examines the role that philosophy or theology’s history plays in the conceptual constructions of scholastic thinkers, and what they think is truly first and deepest in the history they so study.
