dc.description Fair warning: You use this material at your own risk. Parts of it the author is fairly happy with, but other parts of it he is not. The Survey as a whole is the sort of thing you give to a class when you feel obliged to cover certain topics, but not all of it is the what you'd want to appear in a scholarly journal. In particular, some of what the author says about Avicenna on the human soul is just plain false. Also the material on Scotus is very sloppy. And the chapter on Nicholas of Cusa at the end can only be described as, well, perfunctory. You may well find other gross failings as well. (The author has, but leaves it as homework for the reader to find where they are.) en

The document circulated freely in printed form since 1985, and previous versions since before that. This is Version 2.0, dated August 29, 1985. en
