Crescas’ Critique of Aristotle by Harry Austryn Wolfson pdf free download. MEDIAEVAL philosophy is no longer considered as a barren interval between ancient and modern philosophy. Nor is it any longer identified with works written solely in Latin. Scholarship recognizes it more and more as a formative period in the history of philosophy the records of which are to be found in a threefold literature-Arabic, Hebrew and Latin. In certain respects, the delineation and treatment of the history of philosophy should follow the same lines as the delineation and treatment of the political and social history of Europe.

The closing of the philosophic schools at Athens early in the sixth century is analogous in its effect to the fall of Rome toward the end of the fifth century. Like the latter, it brought a dying past to its end, and prepared the way for a shifting of scene in a phase of history. The successive translations of Greek treatises into Syriac, Arabic, Hebrew and Latin correspond, in philosophy, to the spread of the diverse elements of Roman civilization with the successions of tribal wanderings, of invasions, and of conversions.
Both accomplished similar results, transforming something antiquated and moribund into something new, with life in it.

By the same token, just as one cannot treat of the new life that appeared in Europe during the Middle Ages as merely the result of the individual exploits of heroes, or of the eloquence of preachers, or of the inventive fancy of courtiers, so one cannot treat of the development of mediaeval philosophic thought as a mere interplay of abstract com:epts. There is an earthly basis to the development of philosophic problems in the Middle Ages-and that is language and text. The present work is an attempt to trace the history of certain problems of philosophy by means of philological and textual studies.
