Abelard, A Dialogue of a Philosopher with a Jew and a Christian. Abelard, Peter. A Dialogue of a Philosopher with a Jew and a Christian. Translated by Pierre J. Payer. Toronto, Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, 1979. 14 x 20.5cm. 183 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Pre-owner's bookplate affixed to inside cover. [Mediaeval Sources In Translation, No. 20].

Peter Abelard was a medieval French scholastic philosopher, theologian and preeminent logician. His love for, and affair with, Hlose d'Argenteuil have become legendary. The general importance of Abelard lies in his having fixed more decisively than anyone before him the scholastic manner of philosophizing, with the object of giving a formal, rational expression to received ecclesiastical doctrine. Though his particular interpretations may have been condemned, they were conceived in essentially the same spirit as the general scheme of thought afterwards elaborated in the 13th century with approval from the heads of the Church. It was in ethics that Abelard showed greatest activity of philosophical thought. He stressed the subjective intention as determining, if not the moral character, at least the moral value, of human action. [wikipedia]
