The purpose of the study as here presented is to approach the Middle Ages from a new point of view, by showing how the thought of the period, metaphysics included, is intimately connected with the whole round of Western civilization to which it belongs. My work represents simply an attempt to open the way; it makes no pretense to exhaustive treatment of any of the innumerable problems involved in so vast a subject. I desire to express my cordial thanks to the friends who have aided me in translating these lec

With broad and sweeping strokes, Maurice De Wulf paints a picture of the relationship between the intellectual and societal life of the Middle Ages (beginning with the 12th century).

With broad and sweeping strokes, Maurice De Wulf paints a picture of the relationship between the intellectual and societal life of the Middle Ages (beginning with the 12th century). He first outlines the dominant philosophical system of the time, Scholasticism, and its most relevant doctrines. Then, he examines how these doctrines found expression in the politics, art, and daily-living of Medieval men. The author calls this work a supplement to his "History of Medieval Philosophy," and it does certainly read like a supplement.

From Anselm and Abelard to Thomas Aquinas and William of Occam, it chronicles the influence of the era's great philosophers on their contemporaries as well as on subsequent generations. An overview of feudal Europe examines the rising spirit of the age, in which the concept of the value and dignity of the individual attained a growing acceptance.

With broad and sweeping strokes, Maurice De Wulf paints a picture of the relationship between the intellectual and societal life of the Middle Ages (beginning with the 12th century). He first outlines the dominant philosophical system of the time, Scholasticism, and its most relevant doctrines. Then, he examines how these doctrines found expression in the politics, art, and daily-living of Medieval men.

The author calls this work a supplement to his "History of Medieval Philosophy," and it does certainly read like a supplement. De Wulf never dives too deep into any one topic, treating most things with a general, rather than a specific, approach. It is as if he is only interested in allowing you a peek into each room before he moves on to the next. Insofar as this was his intention, he succeeded. However, such broad strokes may be dangerous when treating such a delicate and intricate subject as Scholastic philosophy; at times his approach did not do justice to the complexities of the doctrines he was summarizing.

One point, though, the author demonstrated very well was that the inviolable dignity of the human person is essentially a Scholastic concept. The state, he then reasons, must exist for the sake of the individual, not the other way around. This is a re-occurring theme throughout the book.

Also, the book contains a few beautiful gems such as this:
(Speaking of Gothic architecture) "Their lofty arches flooded with light, their windows sparkling in the sun like Oriental tapestry, their noble and expressive vaults, their profusion of paintings and of figures and of symbols, - this is not the work of men who are skeptical of life." (page 137)

One word on the format: it reads very fast, not only because of the style, but because the size of the font is almost double that of average books.

This is a masterwork on its subject. Unfortunately, it is written in the style of language and writing of 100+ years ago . . . but then, that is when the book was written by one of the leading scholars of this subject.
