The Medieval Concept of Time free pdf This volume examines the changing perceptions of time in the transition from the medieval debate to early modern philosophy. Some of the foremost contemporary experts try to weave the various strands of the topic into a methodological and doctrinal whole. The book consists of 21 studies (19 in English, 2 in French) subdivided into five main sections, entitled respectively "The Late Antique Legacy", "The Scholastic Debate", "Late Scholasticism", "Time and Medicine", "Early Modern Philosophy". Themes discussed include the reception of Aristotle's doctrine of time, the Augustinian and Neoplatonic heritage, the concepts of divine eternity and angelic duration, and the particular role attributed to time in medieval and early modern medicine.
