Product Overview

Sandra Visser and Thomas Williams offer a brief, accessible introduction to the life and thought of Saint Anselm (c. 1033-1109). Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury for the last sixteen years of his life, is one of the foremost philosopher-theologians of the Middle Ages. His keen and rigorous thinking earned him the title The Father of Scholasticism, and his influence is discernible in figures as various as Thomas Aquinas, John Duns Scotus, the voluntarists of the late-thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and the Protestant reformers. In part I of this book, Visser and Williams lay out the framework of Anselms thought: his approach to what he calls the reason of faith, his account of thought and language, and his theory of truth. Part II focuses on Anselms account of God and the divine attributes, and it shows how Anselm applies his theory of language and thought to develop a theological semantics that at once respects divine transcendence and allows for the possibility of divine rational knowledge. In Part III, Visser and Williams turn from the heavenly to the animal. They elucidate Anselms theory of modality and his understanding of free choice, an idea that was, for Anselm, embedded in his conception of justice. The book concludes with a discussion of Incarnation, Atonement, and original sin, as the authors examine Anselms argument that the death of a God-man is the only possible remedy for human injustice. *Author: Visser, Sandra/ Williams, Thomas *Series Title: Great Medieval Thinkers (Hardcover) *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 320 *Publication Date: 2008/11/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.50 x 5.51 x 0.88 inches
