Description


This book is a collection of studies on subjectivity and agency in medieval and early modern philosophy. The individual chapters address the topic from the point of view of cognitive psychology and moral psychology. Each of the chapters consists of new, cutting-edge research in the field closely connected to the guiding theme. Thus, instead of a complete overview on the historical period, the book provides detailed glimpses into some of the most important figures and developments. Some examples of the main philosophers discussed are: Augustine, Avicenna, Aquinas, Martin Luther, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz and Hume. Topics covered include perspectives from Islamic intellectual history on losing and finding oneself, subjective experience and self-knowledge, human subjectivity, desires and passions.
