About this product
- DescriptionThis book forms a major contribution to the discussion on fate, providence, and moral responsibility in antiquity, the Middle Ages and early modern times. The thirty-seven chapters of this book cover the history of the philosophical problems of freedom and determinism since its origins in pre-Socratic philosophy up to the seventeenth century. The main focus points are classic Antiquity (Plato and Aristotle), the Neoplatonic synthesis of late Antiquity (Plotinus, Proclus, Simplicius), and thirteenth-century scholasticism (Thomas Aquinas, Henry of Ghent). These points t only represent key moments in the intellectual history of the West, but also feature the central figures and periods to which Carlos Steel has devoted his philosophical career.
